Summer season is the hottest period when parents do not feel like sending out their kids of their comfort zone, i.e, their homes, which are full of various facilities and amenities. Temperature during this period is rising like anything, making it uncomfortable for the people to survive the heat. People tend to spend major part of the day in their air-conditioned homes but once they need to step out, they look for the same kind of exteriors in terms of the facilities and amenities available. Kids have summer vacations or summer break during this time duration. Summer vacations are fun time but then this time period can be judiciously utilized by the kids to learn certain activities either related to the formal education or may be some extra co-curricular activities. Here comes in the picture of various kinds of day camps.
Day camps are for children aged between 2-10 years or above with various activities aligned for them as per their interests. These camps follow a specific time schedule and activity schedule, which the child can join as per his/her interests. One can say that such camps are a boon for the working parents these days. Parents can leave their kids under the proper care and supervision of well-behaved and well-mannered adults, who in turn will take care of the kids by making them do some creative work or education related stuff.
These day camps are not just related to formal education or extra co-curricular activities, but can relate to adventure sport, place exploration, city walk or heritage walks. Here the kids get to learn a lot apart from their regular syllabi. All this helps the child to be more independent and confident in future. Such activities help the kids in various forms during their school times too. At times kids tend to learn certain things, which the books cannot guide them or update them.
The first thing that comes to the mind of the parents before sending the kids to such camps is the atmosphere, environment and cleanliness of the place where in their child would spend some part of the day learning some or the other activity on a daily basis. Such place must be air conditioned or else well ventilated, well lighted with proper adult care and guidance to the kids. They tend to spend some hours of the day at this place learning various activities.
Nowadays people running such camps provide the interested parents and kids with various facilities including transportation facilities too which makes it all the more easier and comfortable for the parents to send their kids. Kids tend to learn a lot at these camps. They become more independent, more confident, play the role of leaders, get to learn time management, team coordination, cooperation and learn the art of making friends and competing with them in a positive manner. Kids should be encouraged to join such camps for the development of their overall personality and grooming which is quintessential these days.
To conclude, one can say that day camps are must these days.
