The Benefits of Day Camps
All parents want the best for their children, be it education, opportunities, health etc. They want their children to be content, successful, be able to get along well with others, self-confident and have an overall positive self-concept. Camps offer a space that allows children to develop and nurture these skills. Whether it’s a music camp, sports camp, robotics camp or an all-around summer or winter camp, there is something to suit all children (and parents!) needs. With a large variety of camps available around Dubai, we look at the importance and the benefits that they bring to children.
Parents who have sent their children to day camps before will have seen the benefits of camps. Day camps
allow children to explore specific areas of interest or throw themselves into something entirely new! As a child, we have all had a list of things we would like to do and seem to change our minds as many times as we change our socks! Camps held by schools, private organisations and education centres allow children to explore these different options. They allow them to test out their interests in specific subjects and make an informed decision for future plans. They also allow children to discover, try new subjects and learn new skills, that they maybe thought they would not enjoy as much or that may not have been readily available otherwise.
Camps allow children to be a part of a fun, stimulating environment outside of their usual academic space. They can provide unstructured play allowing children to be away from the routines of school and daily life. They enable children to be practical, allowing them to enjoy their activities without them realising that they are learning!
Camps can be a fun break away from the classroom environment. Children are in an informal learning environment free of the norms and pressures of school which can encourage them in their ability to make friends and connect with other children. This kind of interaction can also increase self-confidence and self-esteem by placing children within a relaxed environment allowing them to interact with others and open up. Camps remove children from the competition-rich environment of schools.
Being in such a fun, relaxed environment, children can develop not only their skills such as team building, problem-solving, critical thinking, leadership skills but also their character and personality traits, such as independence. This is done through various character building exercises. They can develop positive feelings and memories from being in an entertaining environment.
Keeping physically active and getting children outdoors is what all parents want during a holiday or break time. Day camps are great at keeping children on the go with various activities and active learning. It allows them to take a break from technology by doing hands on tasks away from the gadgets that they are used to.
Day camps are also great for parents. Maybe you are working parents, have a new-born baby or a home to tend to, sending your child to a day camp can provide you with the time and energy you need to get things in order or just give you that well-needed break!
Whatever the reason, camps are a great way of providing a stimulating environment where children can keep busy and learn while having fun.
