A summer camp is a program for children and teenagers which is monitored by either school teachers or college lecturers. Sometimes this program is organized by a public foundation also. In general it is held in summer season only. Summer camps are held for all age groups starting from 7 to 16.
These camps are the best way to give your child an all round development. Since they are organized in summer holidays the kids enjoy the holidays as well as they utilize the vacation. There are different types of summer camps according to the age group of the child. In these camps if a child is sent frequently as he grows up he or she will turn out to be an independent, self sufficient youth. This is the program where a child’s inner quality, his skills in a particular field, other than his regular studies is explored.
The camps are organized for various purposes. It can be divided into many categories like sports camp, educational camp, tech camp, art and performing camp, weight loss camps and so on. All these camps can be either day camps or overnight camps or residential camps. This is totally at the camp organizers discretion. Sometimes the girls and boys camps are organized separately, sometimes co-ed camps are also held.
Now the tricky job is to find out a proper, trained, well organized summer camp for your child. First thing you must find out is whether they are fully equipped with personnel like medical, fire fighting or if it is a sports camp whether they have proper trainers. You need to enquire about the supervisor or the counselor about his qualification background, how long he has been on the job and so on. Then you must find out about the camp staff.
If everything goes satisfactory then comes the expenditure factor. Again it depends on what type of summer camp you want your child to attend. If it is a traditional summer camp it will cost you more because these camps offer adventurous sports also. If it is an overnight camp then you have to include layover expenses, transportation cost, tuition cost and so on.
