What is the Best Kids Summer Camp for Your Child?
A SUMMER PROGRAM FOR EVERY BOY & GIRL
Today’s summer camps for kids offer something for everyone. Whether your child has a special need or a special talent, there exists a suitable summer camp for boys and girls, either coed or same-sex. You’ll want to find out which camps are highly structured and which are very flexible.
TRADITIONAL SUMMER CAMPS OR SPECIALIZED
Some residential summer camps combine activities of the traditional summer camp of yesteryear with the more specialized ones of today. Will your child enjoy a traditional arts and crafts summer camp or a sports summer camp? Or will he or she want a specialty camp, such as an academics summer camp, a performing arts camp or weight loss camp?
CULTURAL PROGRAMS OR INTERNATIONAL CAMPS
There are also residential summer camps that help build an appreciation of shared cultural values while international summer camps with special programs add a new dimension to the camping experience and prepare children for responsible citizenship. There is one that will fit your family’s needs.
Rather more specialized are some summer camps catering specifically to children with learning differences and developmental disorders. Children and teens with diagnoses such as ADD, ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, NLD, and developmental delays, can have wonderful summer experiences at special needs camp where the staff is professional and the programming is specifically geared to the population.
