Five reasons you should send your children to summer camp at Old Hawthorne.
Every summer, kids flock to camp at The Club at Old Hawthorne for an experience of a lifetime. Summer camp can be a fun getaway for kids to help fill the time during school break, and the benefits of sending a child to summer camp are numerous. Here’s how summer camp at The Club at Old Hawthorne can benefit your child for years to come.
- Support Healthy Living
Between swimming, playing golf and tennis, and all sorts of other activities, camp programs at The Club of Old Hawthorne encourage physical activity. At camp, children are encouraged to participate in all kinds of new, fun ways to stay active. Though kids may see these as just fun and games, our camp programs provide ways to get great exercise, which is important to establish at a young age so children can carry those exercise habits into adulthood.
- Develop Lifelong Skills
Summer camp nurtures lifelong skills that are important in the real world. For instance, during group activities, a child learns how to work on a team and communicate with other children. Kids may also develop resilience after facing an obstacle and learning how to overcome it, or a child may take on a leadership role for the first time during a group activity.
- Gain Self-Esteem
Summer camp offers a unique experience to children: The ability to be away from their parents for a short period. Just being on their own is a huge confidence builder for children, as they have to make decisions and solve problems themselves.Children are also more likely to realize how capable they are of learning and growing as they learn how to swim and play golf and tennis.
- Create Friendships
Summer camp gives children a unique opportunity to meet other kids with similar interests and make new friends with different backgrounds. Because children spend hours upon hours with one another, friendships made during summer camp are genuine and long-lasting.
