Growing Up At Summer Camp

Here at Camp Shohola, we are already preparing for next summer and counting down the days until we are reunited with our amazing campers! At our summer camp near New Jersey, the best part about us is the endless hours of fun, learning, and growing that children will get to experience over the course of the summer. Every activity, interaction, and event provides children with a new learning experience that allows him or her to grow and have fun at the same time, what more could you ask for? Keep on reading to learn about some of the ways that summer camp allows children to grow.

  • Even the counselors agree that one of the best parts about summer camp is disconnecting from the outside world. Children and adults alike are given a chance to experience a world without cell phone service, Internet, and television. This day in age, it’s extremely important for everyone to reconnect with nature and spend some time outside. This allows children to grow up with respect and a love for the outdoors. And to not grow up constantly attached to a cell phone.
  • During the school year, it’s hard for children to truly be themselves. But summer camp provides children with a safe and supportive environment where they can grow up feeling confident in themselves. The benefits of summer camp are endless, but children learning to be comfortable in their own skin is one of the greatest things that they can leave with.
  • Sending your son or daughter can be a very scary experience. The summer camp experience is often a child’s first time sleeping away from home for an extended period of time. With the help of our summer camp counselors, children will gain responsibility, learn to take care of themselves, and become independent over the course of a summer.

Summer camp prepares children for the future and helps them to grow in ways that can’t be reached anywhere else.
