PREPARING KIDS FOR SUMMER CAMP SEASON
For so many kids, summer camp is one of the best times of the year. It’s not only a few days away from parents and responsibilities where kids can have fun and play all day, but there are added benefits that come with a guided experience. Things like games, crafts, and other activities help them develop critical thinking skills, expand their social interactions, and foster independence and confidence.
There are many camps out there, too — day camps, sleepaway camps, camps with themes from music to art and science, and religious camps. No matter which type your kids are interested in, you’ll need to make sure they’re prepared for their time away from home.
INSECT REPELLENTS AT SUMMER CAMP: A MUST-HAVE
