It is important for kids to remain physically and mentally active, and that includes during their summer breaks. Summer camps and programs are the perfect opportunity to keep kids active and introduce them to new concepts and interests that could influence the rest of their lives. Read on to see why summer programs are so important for kids.
Keep Minds Active
There is usually a period of one to three months of summer where kids are not exposed to any type of academic education. This is incredibly detrimental to kids’ education, and it can negatively influence their beginning weeks in a new grade. Summer programs keep kids’ minds active by introducing new concepts and by reinforcing learned concepts. Kids are also around their peers and instructors who all contribute to mental stimulation and keep kids prepared for when school begins.
Keep Bodies Active
Summer and no school are great excuses for kids to sit in front of the television or play on tablets with little to no physical activity. These are unhealthy habits that affect kids’ physical and mental health. Summer camps and programs encourage kids to move and interact with the outside world. Many summer camps involve accelerated teachings in gymnastics, sports, and martial arts. These are great activities that keep kids’ bodies and minds active over the summer.
Keep Interests Alive
Enrolling kids in a summer camp or program is a great opportunity to introduce them to new interests. Kids can learn about physical activities, such as gymnastics; they can also learn about creative and educational activities, such as photography and science. Kids may find a new passion that they would not have been exposed to during traditional school. They can then take this new passion and develop it on their own or through after school programs and extracurricular activities.
