The Value of Summer Camp

There are few better memories than those made during summer camp! Those summer months when the days are filled with pure fun and excitement; and every day ends with a story that only your child can tell.

Choosing a summer camp is a tough decision with all the options available and pinpointing the best type of camp for your child is key to achieving summer camp success. While deciding between camps think of the value that a summer camp program will bring to your child’s summer vacation. Not only are summer camps massive fun and filled with a variety of learning opportunities but they also teach teamwork, confidence and encourage skill building.

The American Camp Association (ACA) recently did a survey of 5,000 families across the nation to come up with an overview of the Value of Camp which included the opinion of not just parents but the campers as well. And of course those are the opinions that matter! Read the results here and find out more about the ACA accreditation process here.

Participating in summer camp gives children the opportunity to develop current skills, uncover hidden talents and open up their world to new experiences that they can take with them long after their camping days are over. Here at Camp Keystone we value those shared memories that not only we see the kids building with each other but also those that we get to carry with us. Seeing children take leaps and bounds into confidence and independence is the greatest reward for any camp staffer.

We’re looking forward to our summer days ahead and the staff is looking forward to seeing all the new and returning campers!
