Childcare advice: How attending a summer camp in Frisco, Texas, can help your child develop new skills

Posted on 04-23-2014

Childcare specialists say that summer camps provide many benefits for children. Time away from home in a safe, exciting environment challenges children to learn different social structures and to develop new or underdeveloped skills which bring long-term benefits.

Initially, some children and parents may be anxious about a summer camp; however, experience shows that children who attend camp are more likely to emerge from the program with a healthy sense of self and independence.

The success of summer camps is based largely on the fact that children are drawn out of their comfort zones and allowed to participate without pressure in activities and unstructured play. Children meet new friends and find comfort in caring adults who are good role models. The role of camp staff is to support children in the event they feel anxious or if they are struggling to adjust to this unfamiliar experience. They also provide encouragement to help children try new things and make new friends.

Camp activities are different from the activities children experience at school. These activities cover a range of creative and physical skills that help children tap into unrealized potential and develop their interests. Leadership skills, how to work in a team, and how to manage different social groups are all life skills that a child can learn and build while at summer camp.

On the weekend, consider taking your family on eye-opening adventures that focus on learning to reinforce some of the concepts your child discovered during summer camp. Urban Air is a fun and safe environment for children to develop coordination skills as it offers guests a wide variety of physical activities across its wall-to-wall trampoline arenas, trampoline runway, foam pit, slam dunk track, and trampoline dodgeball arena.
