It is not easy for parents to make the decision to send their child away into the waiting arms of strangers who promise to take care of the – people who promise to show them the wonders of nature, fun, new skills, and friendships.
Jeff Merhige, executive director of YMCA Camp Kern, believes the world needs the next generation to be more tolerant of each other’s views, ideology, and beliefs. Summer camp is an opportunity for children to be exposed to the best of human character. Trends show that children are making more friends online than at any other time in the past. This in itself is a startling statistic because it lends itself to children to desire to spend more and more time online and therefore away from a healthy real-life social environment.
|Camp Foley… where kids can be KIDS!|
Camp Foley enables campers to meet kids and staff from all over the world – from many races, cultures, and socioeconomic cultures! Foley teaches children valuable skills, including social skills and challenges in a wide range of physical activities. These skills could never be taught from a computer screen.
A camp is a place where kids interact with people face-to-face, and at the same time, learn about themselves and others around a campfire.
Growing up in the UK, summer camp was simply not an option for me as a child. Unfortunately, the United Kingdom does not offer these kinds of precious opportunities. I believe that the youth of the UK would benefit greatly from being able to attend summer camp much in the same way that American kids can. Personally, I would have loved the opportunity when I was young. My advice: truly embrace this opportunity!

This is really an informative & useful blog. Thanks for sharing with us. Summer camps
Hi! I'll try to visit this page again some other time. Thank you so much for sharing this blog post. I'll be looking forward for your other posts as well. You have such a nice page. Australian Defence Force Cadets often and almost exclusively run their extended camps and courses over school holiday periods, the vast majority of which provide all food and lodging for Cadets over the course of the camp. However, these camps often last only one or two weeks and thus do not fill up the majority of the summer holiday break. This allows the Cadets (who are aged 12-18 years and therefore the majority attend school) to attend the camps whilst still completing normal schooling. Our staff will work with your student’s goals and ability and provide one-on-one instruction in a relaxed environment in hour-long sessions – as many times as you like over the summer.

I totally agree with you. The skills and team work that is taught to children in summer camps can never be taught through computer screen. Moreover, exposure to the outer world is also necessary for children for their overall development.
