Guide to Camps and Enrichment Programs

(page 1 of 2)

Whether it’s a general camp or one with a specialty, a day camp or overnight camp, going to camp can be an integral part of a child’s educational and social development—an experience that can’t be replicated anywhere else.

“Camp provides children with a community of caring adults, who nurture experiential education that results in self-respect and appreciation for human value,” according to the American Camp Association. “All of the outcomes — self-identity, self-worth, self-esteem, leadership, and self-respect — build personal competencies. These personal competencies are reflected in the four ‘C’s’ of the camp community: compassion, contribution, commitment, and character.”

Camps help children grow by providing a supervised, positive environment. They can help broaden a child’s social skills (kids meet all kinds of different people in a camp setting) and, when the camp involves the great outdoors, can heighten a child’s awareness of the relationship between people and nature.
