As much as we may wish that our kids would always remain children, they just keep getting older!
And as parents, we know that ultimately our role is to help our children grow up and learn to become independent. A day or overnight camp provides a safety-conscious and supportive environment for children to branch out and learn to live, eat, sleep, and play away from mom and dad.
This simple first step can have a profound effect on children, and parents can feel at ease that their children are being well cared-for.
Time and again parents report that their child has come home from camp having grown up a little more, and having displayed a greater sense of independence and confidence.
