Summer camp counselors do more than lead the pack of kids in their charge. They become role models for campers to lean on throughout the camp journey. For teen counselors, it can provide a unique experience, whether they become a full-time counselor or special helper, such as volunteers at Lake Metroparks or Great Lakes Science Center.
At summer camp, kids are encouraged to interact with something other than a screen. Instead, time is spent outside running, jumping and playing with other kids. Consider these reasons why every tech-savvy child should embark on this adventure.
Day camps and classes give your child the chance to explore a topic or activity in more depth. They also offer a shorter, more intensive experience — typically including activities, like games or field trips, to help campmates connect with each other. More than 90 percent of campers say that they met people who are different from themselves and made new friends. Many day camps in the region are already enrolling campers for this summer, so now is a good time to explore options and talk with your children about their interests.
Overnight camps bring the traditional menu of activities such as hiking, fishing, swimming, boating, games, arts and crafts, and more, but also develop children's courage and resourcefulness. Learn everything you need to know about overnight camps, including gauging whether your child is ready, finding the right fit, and prepping your budget.
