The school year is coming to an end, which means final tests and grades will be coming home soon. So your child did well in math and reading. They can recite historical facts that you have long forgotten. But do they have the confidence to try new experiences? To teach and help someone else? To problem solve – even when the problem seems impossible?
School teaches children how to be book smart. Camp teaches children how to be a better person. Confidence, bravery, teamwork, creativity, perseverance, kindness and independence are just some of the many character traits that children develop at camp. It is not enough for your child to get good grades at school. They need to have the confidence to fail and know that failing is okay. They need independence to make smart decisions when parents aren’t around. They need to be willing to help others and ask for help when they need it.
Let camp teach your child all the lessons they are not learning at school!
