School is almost out for summer! Wondering what to do with the kids over the long summer holiday? That’s where summer camps come in. Great for balancing out the school-free months, summer camps are both educational and fun.
So, where do you start? Here are five tips on how to make the summer camp selection process a little more manageable.
Five things to think about
It is important to look for a camp that hires experienced staff who will make your child feel comfortable. Other than friendliness, make sure that camp leaders have passed a security check.
The best camps will provide a variety of activities for your children which will enhance your child’s learning skills, and improve their social skills along with teamwork! Look for a kids’ summer camp that really emphasizes the skills you would like your child to develop and is supportive of your child’s dreams.
How hard do they push?
During a day camp, your child will be kept busy with different sorts of activities. Although these activities can be beneficial, it is important to not push children too hard and allow them plenty of breaks. Ask about the number of breaks they will be getting throughout the day. Be sure to check whether the kids summer camp you’re looking at provides the right combination of fun and relaxation.
As a parent, it is not pleasant being left out of the loop. Make sure that the camp supports open communication between parents, staff, and children. This will make you feel comfortable and safe leaving your child in their hands every day.
Last but not least, ask yourself if your child will really enjoy this camp. Don’t settle for an average summer camp. Summer is a time for adventure and fun. Dance to EvOLvE prides ourself on our summer camps so why not give us a go?!
