Looking for your child to develop oral communication, collaboration, creativity, and conflict resolution? Help them unplug from electronic devices and get connected to their peers, Camp Staff, and their awesome Creator.
Here’s some truth:
According to Dan Weir from unplugatcamp.com, ” The average child spends 7 ½ hours a day in front of a screen. Summer camp is unique because children have an extended stay in an environment that forces them deal with the effects of being “tech free.” At the same time summer camp is an environment that fosters social growth. Children at camp are forced to revert to natural, basic human communication. Unlike online environments, kids are monitored by professionals and adults. Exercise, fresh air, and socializing with peers are all a major focus of summer camps. While social media sites may foster social growth, it is the specific intent of summer camps to concentrate on youth development.”
