Summer Camp Makes Campers Better People
We all know this to be true but how do we get parents to truly KNOW what benefits kids get from a summer camp experience.
This is a great article from NY Times blogger Talya Minsberg:
It’s quite extraordinary watching a camper transform from Day 1 to the end of the camp session. For some, learning how to make their own choices and forge their own paths is an enormous step. With others, you see a previously shy camper turn into one who loves to dress up in neon T-shirts for dinner and can throw an ultimate frisbee farther down the field than anyone else. You see campers learn how to interact with 19-year-olds, and see them begin to emulate the positive examples of their counselors.
