Summer camp has so many benefits for children. From academic benefits to exercise and social skills, camp has many rewarding and engaging experiences to offer. At Spanish for fun! summer camp, kids learn Spanish through play and do all kinds of activities — science, cooking lessons, arts and crafts, literacy, music, gardening, computer lessons, games, sports, gymnastics, Latin folklore and more are all part of the Sff! curriculum.
Here are two major reasons why summer camp is essential for children:
Their Brains Stay Engaged
Kids who don’t engage in educational activities over the summer can lose out on some of the progress they made during the school year. It’s what’s known as “brain drain.” Kids regress in education areas if they don’t exercise those skills over the summer. Children are most susceptible to falling behind in reading and math; at Spanish for fun!, our students exercise these skills regularly.
They Stay Active
Another risk for kids during the summer is weight gain. Kids who stay inside playing video games and watching TV are susceptible to gaining weight because they’re exercising less than when they were in school. At Sff! summer camp, children are extremely active. Through structured and unstructured play, kids hone their social skills, learn how to interact with their peers, and form lasting friendships that will benefit them for years to come.
