June is already here and with it comes summer. Many will have crossed out days in the calendar since it ended last October but for others its arrival is a headache. On June 22, most schools on the islands will close the school year and a good number of parents will ask themselves: What do I do now with the children? Well, from time to time, more and more people are opting for summer camps to cover the time that previously covered the school day. In addition, there are many reasons for children and young people to go to a camp at least once in their life, as an opportunity to develop personally in different aspects.

The camp offers activities in different areas generating values, such as environmental awareness, diversity, gender, as well as health and consumption habits that enable their emotional and social development that allows them to put them into practice in their daily actions. Living with other people, in a natural environment and a friendly context, favors tolerance and reinforces social skills that facilitate their relationship with others. In the same way, they develop physical and intellectual aptitudes, while enjoying the different programmed activities. These activities or physical-sports games are used to educate the physical dimension of the participant, as well as teamwork, collaboration, respect and cooperation, seeking to contribute in this way to the personal development of children and youth. Reasons

 

Why go camping?

Leisure

The main objective should always be that the children enjoy and find in the camps unforgettable experiences in a relaxed environment and full of positive energy. Development

These activities are ideal for children to learn to share, not only their belongings but also ideas, experiences and knowledge with other children, who are usually outside their environment.

Routine

Although after the school year a relaxed atmosphere is also sought for the children, it is essential that they maintain order and routines, developing the child’s habits and will.

Independence

Thanks to this type of experience, children become more independent and autonomous, as they have to learn to do a lot of things without their parents nearby.

Delusion

The camp is not like school. Children usually take this option as if it were a vacation with friends, in which they also carry out activities that they like, so they come with joy.

Reinforcement

There are as many camps as you can imagine if, for example, the child is lax in languages, you can choose a language immersion campus to support the subject.

Friends

Many times the little ones have difficulties to develop outside of their circle of friends, opening it up to other children with whom sharing experiences will make them much more extroverted.
