When we were young summer vacation was magic, but with children and grandchildren of our own we often wonder how we will keep them busy. The merits of activity based summer experiences are endless, from creating lifelong memories to maintaining children’s focus during the three-month brain break.
We know these benefits well and have designed Kidcredible Camp at Talking Rock with them in mind. While the fun has come to an end this year, below are some reasons it’s never too early to start planning next summer’s fun.
The summer is an excellent time for kids to become more active, because the feel-good factor created by sunlight boosts our enthusiasm to begin a fitness regime, or take up a new sport.
Increases Mental Focus
A person’s ability to understand and absorb information diminishes with time. Summer is a much-needed break to ensure that kids are ready for the start of the next school year.
Drives Social Development
Children maintain a social circle around their classmates and daily activities. A break from the normal routine helps them create new connections and maybe even longtime friendships.
Maintains Learning Process
Educational activities decrease the learning losses that young people experience during the summer months.
A special thanks to all the kids who joined us this year for Kids Camp. We hope you had a great time!
