Hey parents! Summer is just around the corner! There are plenty of things to do in The Windy City for you and your family to enjoy time with your little ones and explore fun places! You can explore the Field Museum of Natural History, go to the Lincoln Park Zoo, watch a movie at the Chicago theatre, or go sightseeing at iconic John Hancock Center or Willis Tower! While there are many attractions to visit, summer is the perfect time for your kids to get involved in summer camps!
Does your child love to make crafts and play fun games? Do they like to dance? What are their interests? Summer camps are a great way for kids to be creative and imaginative, whether it is an educational camp, sports camp, or art camp! But besides having tons of fun, you’re probably wondering "what are some other benefits to sending your kids to summer camps"?
Make friends! Summer camp is a place where kids from all different neighborhoods will be spending lots of time together! They are exposed to diversity and team building exercises. If it’s for as short as a week or even a month, kids are able to bond with others and make friends!
Unplug from technology! These days kids are surrounded by technology and playing games online or on phones. Let them have fun outdoors and engage in real activities! Summer camps allow kids to take a break from television, phones, and the Internet and not be distracted by online activity.
Develop Life Skills! Camps are designed for kids to practice social skills, enhance their athletic or artistic ability, and discover what they love to do!
Summer dance camps are a great way for kids to stay physically active and make new friends! If you as a parent have experienced life at summer camp yourself as a child, you know the positive effects that still matter to you as an adult, and you also know that you want the same thing for your own kids. If you’re stuck deciding which camps to choose for your child, why not choose dance? Summer dance camps are a full package of increased physical activity, creative and social skills, and, of course, FUN!
