Why Camps are Good for Kids
1) Spend time being physically active. Camps allow children the opportunity to move through sports, games, activities, swimming, etc.
2) Experience success and gain confidence. Day camps and summer camps help children to build self-confidence and self-esteem. They have the opportunity to succeed in various activities. Camps help teach kids that they can!
3) Try new things. Camps pushes children out of their comfort zone and opens the door to new experiences. By trying new activities, children have a good chance of finding something new they like as well as finding new passions or hobbies.
4) Unplug from technology. When kids take a break from TV, cell phones, internet, etc. they take the time to find their creative side and simply play! Camp is real and hands on.
5) Develop social skills. Camps teach kids to communicate, work together as part of team and to become a leader. Kids have to learn how to get along with their piers in a group setting while working together to accomplish tasks. Camp encourages new friendships that many times can last a lifetime.
6) Learn how to work hard and face new challenges. When kids feel safe in their camp settings, they are more apt to try new things and work hard to accomplish things with their friends all in a stress-free environment.
7) Grow in their independence. Camp is one of the best places for kids to practice good decision-making skills and learn how to deal with various types of people. They are also in a safe place where they can grow with supervision but learn on their own.

“My decision to sponsor a child through the Stronger Together Foundation is about connecting. In particular, connecting a child with the sport he or she loves but is unable to participate in lessons, games, etc. due to financial constraints.”
