After the long school year and all the stress that comes along with it, summer camp is a fun and relaxing break. While some parents may think that summer camp is all fun and games, it is also filled with learning and new experiences that can’t be done anywhere else. By making the decision to send your son to a summer camp near New York, like Camp Shohola, you are setting them up for success and preparing them for their future. But how does attending a summer camp actually help your child?

  • At Camp Shohola, boys become independent and more confident in their abilities to be on their own. With the help of our amazing summer camp counselors, boys are continually supervised but also given the chance to take care of themselves and live by themselves. While summer camp is often the first time that children are living without parents, it provides them a perfect opportunity to prepare for the future and learn life lessons at summer camp.
  • From exploring the summer camp facilities to participating in a variety of summer camp activities, children will stay healthy and active all summer long. During the school year, children are constantly on the move. Whether it’s a team sport, after school program, or just going to school everyday, children are constantly active mentally and physically. But more often than not, summer break leaves children lazier and not moving as much as they should. By sending your son to Camp Shohola, he will stay active at summer camp and will always be on the move and thinking. 
  • Parents, if you ever attended summer camp, then you know how great it is. Along with all of the benefits of summer camp, children make new friends and memories to last a lifetime. Many of our campers say that they have met their best friends at Camp Shohola and look forward to being reunited every summer, who wouldn’t want that?!
