  • 1. Sing Songs and Eat S'mores Around a Friendly Campfire
  • 2. As parents, one of the hardest things for us to do is let our children go off into the world outside of our supervision.
  • 3. This could include going to the nearby downtown area, taking public transportation to the beach, or heading into a city.
  • 4. For parents who cannot bear the thought of letting their children from their site, the idea of sending them to a sleep away camp for weeks at a time can be frightening.
  • 5. However, it shouldn't be.
  • 6. Kids who have gone to sleep away camps have been shown to adapt to new situations more easily …

  • 8. Having said this, it's important to know what it is that kids do at camp.
  • 9. When kids go to camp, it can be equated to a pre-collegiate experience, at least in the social sense.
  • 10. They will embark on a combination of planned activities while also being given some free time to choose what they'd like to do.
  • 11. Having these choices a young person can gain confidence in making simple decisions.
  • 12. There is a special bond that is made during the summer camp experience …
  • 13. … where young people create friendships with those they never would have met otherwise.
  • 14. This happens because the experience is unique to any other, and the memories cannot usually be made anywhere else.
  • 15. In spite of the fact that the duration of a camp may only last a few weeks, many kids stay in touch, hoping to see each other the following year, or meeting up sooner.
  • 16. In some cases, the parents also become good friends, finding that the friendly summer camp they sent their children to enriched everyone.
  • 17. This is especially true for the children as they get to experience new things.
  • 18. Whether a child grows up in the city, suburbs, or the country, there are so MANY new experiences that they can find at camp, including the people.
  • 19. Some are not always as parents would like, such as one camper who returned home quoting Chuck Norris "facts" for weeks …
  • 20. … one of which was "When Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone, he'd already missed 3 calls from Chuck Norris."
  • 21. It was funny the first time, but less so as the weeks went on.
  • 22. On this, though, there are instances where children who were not readers have actually come home to surprise their parents with a NEW love for books.
  • 23. Among some of the more popular ones is the Celebrity Team 6 series, which is a collection of stories …
  • 24. … about A-list celebrities like Selena Gomez and Brad Pitt who use their superpowers to save children in Africa.
  • 25. It's a far cry from The Grapes of Wrath, but a step in the right direction.
