Historically, summer camps have been an American institution since the early 1900’s. In the early days camp was all about getting youngsters out of city life and enjoying the clean cool air of the country while learning camping skills.

Today, many programs take place in the the city rather than the country.

One Befit of Summer Camp is kids are given the choice to try new things and take safe risks. This voluntary nature makes children more open to new experiences, with personal satisfaction as their motivation. Not only are there opportunities to try new things, but camp offers many areas for children to excel in.

At a good general interest camp, the non-athlete can shine at arts and crafts, woodworking, or dramatic programs, while the athlete can also find many outlets for their skills. Perhaps most importantly, the two campers learn to live together and become friends despite their varied interests.

Novices have chances to learn, while those who are more experienced can improve. Learning new skills and improving on old ones builds self-esteem. Kids learn independence and how to be self-reliant at camp.

Many years from now campers may not remember capture the flag games or the words to a camp song, Yet, the life lessons learned at camp will remain. Campers learn how to take responsibility. The child who has never before made a bed, will learn how to smooth out sheets and blankets and tidy up a locker. Counselors are always on hand to encourage campers to take responsibility for themselves along minor health issues, a camper learns to articulate what hurts and how to get help. All of this personal responsibility further fosters a sense of independence and self-esteem. Social skills also increase by making new friends and learning how to reach out to strangers.

At camp, children learn to get along with others, all while living together 24 hours a day, learning about courtesy, compromise, teamwork, and respect.

Camps in USA provide even more opportunities for children from other countries. Foreign children learn about America from local children in a fun environment. Daily English language also increase.
