Interaction becomes easier with others when children participate in an activity that interests them. They learn more about themselves and others in this environment. The interaction with staff and peers helps to build lasting relationships and they become more independent and responsible.

Whether it’s for a week or a full summer, these camps provide children with experiences, memories and skills that will last a lifetime. They will gain more self-confidence and independence and form meaningful lasting relationships with their peers. The earlier in life they learn to become independent the better.
