Summer camp is a worthy investment as it allows children to acquire vital social skills, which will prove useful when they’re older. In addition, children develop a sense of self-respect – they’re away from home, so whatever accomplishments they’ve achieved during the summer are all theirs.

Furthering their sense of the quest and their readiness to explore is crucial to raising a well-rounded child.
