11 Lasting Benefits of Summer Camp

Does Dream Big Preschool Offer Summer Camp in the Pine Hills, FL 32808 area near Orlando, FL?

Yes! We are currently offer an affordable Summer Camp Program for children ages 4 years old to 12 years old. We also accept 4C (School Readiness ) for our Summer Camp Program in the Orlando, FL in our Pine Hills, FL 32808 location. Summer camp is also a great way to transition 3 year old students who will participate in our VPK (Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten) program during the next school year. If it is their first time in a formal school setting, it allows them to get used to the school environment and our teachers in a very fun camp manner. s As 14 million children across the country head off to day and overnight camps this summer, they’ll return home with more than just a cute camp t-shirt. The summer camp experience can give kids an advantage in school and in life.

We are quickly approaching the summer months, during which I - and many others here at iD Tech - will witness camps in action, and have the pleasure of hearing/reading feedback from tens of thousands of parents and campers.

And while it's always amazing to see just how many students are having a great time with their camp experiences, it's the benefits and the outcomes; the stories of positive impact that really stand out.

What qualifies me to write about why camp is good for kids?

350,000 students have attended iD Tech programs since 1999.

While that is a lot of young minds absorbing the benefits of their STEM experiences, that's even more parents witnessing growth and development in their children. Thus, there is plenty of feedback to draw from and report on, from one summer alone.

So, I put this together because it's important that parents understand everything camp has to offer. Many ask, "what is summer camp like?" and while the answers out there are good, there is another layer to consider. 

I've heard from friends and family that the decision to send kids to a summer program really comes down to whether or not they can fit camp into their busy schedules, or, if there is a week or two during the summer where they'll need daycare. Similarly, the thought that camp can actually be a learning or growth experience doesn't factor into the equation as much as it should.

That's unfortunate!

That said, I get it. If you have kids, you might think sending them to camp with other kids to play, have fun, learn, interact, etc. isn’t much different from a school experience, right? Thus, any benefits from camp could probably be attained from school, so why bother?

Well, truth be told, there are many benefits exclusive to the summer camp experience.

Why is Summer Camp Important?

Summer camp is important because it offers a structured opportunity for children to grow. Kids go from home to school to extracurriculars, with each environment contributing to their development. Summer camp, then, is another unique venue for growth, allowing kids to become independent and self-confident, while socializing and making new friends, and even learning new skills.
