Why Summer Camps are Good for Kids


Kids and parents (too) eagerly await for summer camps because kids get a chance to play and learn important lessons while having loads of fun. What's also important is that parents don't have to worry about sending their kids to summer camps as these events are good for kids.


Summer camps are very popular all over the USA and since these camps are organized in the peak of summers it also gives kids plenty of opportunities to chill out with their friends and classmates in their own way.

In the USA, many schools organize summer camps in different locations. However, Atlanta summer camps are quite popular since they offers kids a great opportunity to learn and enjoy some of the marvelous and splendid places in Atlanta.

Kids have their own reasons for joining the summer camp. They may be reluctant to go to the schools all year round but they never want to miss the summer camps because it is more of a picnic trip for them with loads of adventure and fun.

The increase in the popularity of summer camps in the USA can probably be attributed also to the mandate that every school need to organize summer camps for the overall development and learning of the kids. Summer camps give the students a great opportunity to discover their identity including their hobbies, interests and other likings.

So kids can take summer camps as part of an academic curriculum or simply as a great opportunity to spend time with other kids their age. Whatever type of summer camp it is, what you need to be sure of is that your kid is going to enjoy at the camp and have a great fun time.

Popular Activities in the Summer Camp

Summer camp offers a wide range of activities related to fun, adventure and learning. Let’s look at some of the popular activities most of the summer camps offer in the USA

Drawing and painting

Many kids enjoy drawing and painting. Both activities are fun and support academic learning. Usually, children are taught different types of painting like sketch painting, watercolour painting or oil painting. Some summer camps also offer classical forms of drawing like portrait making and canvas drawing.

Adventure sports

One of the primary activities of the summer camp is the adventure activities and sports. Most of the summer camps have a wide portfolio of adventure sports like rock climbing, zip lining and river rafting. Some sports are quite extreme for younger kids therefore they must engage in these activities with expert supervision and strict observance of safety measures.

Knowledge sharing sessions

There are summer camps that organize high-intensity knowledge sharing sessions like quiz competition and skill development sessions. These sessions are very helpful in building good knowledge among the kids and help them to increase their academic skills.

Next summer may still be months away, but as parents you need to include your kids summer camps in your plans. Find out which summer camps are good for your child and which ones he/she really likes. Find out the cost you might need to spend and create a budget for it.

Every year I debate on whether I should send my kids to a summer camp. I think next year will be their first year going to a camp

Summer camp is a special type of community where kids come together to have fun. Within the camp setting, children develop a sense of independence as they try new adventures away from home. Summer camps are known for providing a safe environment where children gain self-confidence as they learn new skills.

I think summer camps are a great idea for kids although they are not popular here in the UK. We only have 6 weeks of summer from school and so I dont think there is as big a time span to fill.
I loved summer camp! I went to a church camp and I met some of my best friends there!

Summer camps have always been great experiences for my kids. As they get older, it keeps them from spending their summer in front of a screen!

I definitely agree that summer camps are great for kids. It allows them to interact with other kids and to branch out and learn new things away from the family.

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice.

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
