It’s that time of the year again to start thinking about how the kids will spend their summer holidays! Summers, are often the most looked forward season for several reasons. No school, no bedtime, no waking up time, and a plethora of fun. In this regard, giving your child a summer camp experience becomes crucial and a rite of passage in their lives. It is some time away from home where they are exposed to a different environment and step upon the pedestal of taking care of themselves. Summer camps are one of the best ways for your children to spend their vacations. They are an opportunity to not only explore, but also learn as academics is entwined with enjoyment. Without any coercion or textbooks they will still be in touch with studies, all the while fun is on their platter the entire time.
There are several benefits to sending the children on a summer camp. WonderLab provides an excellent Summer Camp agenda for kids aged 7-10 years. A cool science summer awaits which can come along with several advantages.
- Boost of Confidence
For most children in this age group, this is the first time they are away from home. Such an opportunity not only provides positive exposure, but also gives them enough flexibility to trace their confidence. There is a unique kind of self-empowerment which every individual feels when left to do things individually, and it is necessary that your child experiences this self-reliance. The budding of self-sufficiency and becoming a responsible human being starts from such exposures in their childhood; as proved by notable psychologists Piaget and Erickson. Thus, this camp will work wonders for their self-esteem.
This is also an opportunity to build resilience as they step into new arenas. It allows them to take chances, experiences risks, face failure, and build back up even stronger. It is safe to say that the earlier a child faces this, the more resilient and self-sufficient he/she becomes. It is a different “first” disguised as one of the most important life lessons.
- Social skills
Lastly, another important aspect is communication. Children will engage with new people, step outside their friend circle, and learn to interact. This aids in effective communication; not only speaking their thoughts and opinions, but also learn the art of being a good listener.
Hence, with these advantages in mind, WonderLab has created a unique blend of fun and academics in their Summer Camp Agenda.
