Summer programs are a great way to expose students to new and higher levels of learning during the summer break. Because summer programs can prevent learning loss, they can boost children’s academic success as well. Here are some of the benefits of enrolling your child in a summer program.
Social Skills and Friendship
Summer programs or summer camps can seem like an intimidating thing, but there are many alumni of those programs who will tell you they met some of their best friends there. Being around so many new people gives children the opportunity to meet new people they may have never met before and develop their social skills in the process.
This generation is referred to as the “bubble-wrapped” generation. Kids don’t go outside anymore or experience the world like they used to. Summer programs are the perfect way to get children out of their comfort zone and explore new things. There are tons of activities that kids participate in at summer programs that they might never have access to in their regular daily lives.
Within the “bubble-wrapped” generation, children tend to be less active and not go outside as much. Summer programs teach kids that going outside and learning new things can be fun and exciting. The programs also teach kids good active habits that they will take with them throughout life.
