3 benefits of a local summer camp for children


Are you thinking of sending your child to summer camp this year? The time to enroll is approaching, so it’s important to start thinking about this option sooner rather than later. Let’s take a look at the many benefits your kid can gain from going to a local summer camp.

1. Develop Lifelong Skills

Of course summer camp is a fun time for your child to be around kids their age, but they can learn a ton of lifelong skills as well. With so many fun activities these programs host, your child will be learning different things all season long. At Rowntree Montessori Schools, we have weekly themes, so your child can stay engaged and want to learn even more. From nights making smores and singing camp songs to a week of learning the secrets of the sea, there’s more than enough diversity in our program for your children to want to keep coming back each year!

2. Build Friendships

There are many people your child may meet who don’t go to the same institution as them, so these programs allow them to bond and socialize outside of their normal circle. This socialization can be a great way to develop social skills and learn how to make new friends when the school year starts again in the fall. According to AMI Canada, there are over 1,000 Montessori academies across Canada from coast to coast. With so many students across the country, your child can meet new friends.

3. Get Exercise

By allowing your kid to explore and exercise outdoors, they can broaden their perspective on the world and find something they love to do. We even have an Olympics-themed week where we have an obstacle course, relays, and more for your child to exercise in the fresh air. You will see a difference after camp because they’ll want to keep going outside to have fun with their friends and family.
