Why are 225 students of Class 2nd bursting with excitement today?
Because they are thrilled to be part of the overnight camp in school a much awaited day in their lives.
Organising camps for youngsters is an integral feature in the school calendar aimed to give students time away from books and studies.
Why are camps so important?
Camp is real and helps unplug from technology – When kids take a break from TV, cell phones, and the Internet, they rediscover their creative powers and engage the real world— real people, real activities, and real emotions. They realize, there’s always plenty to do.
Camp expands every child’s abilities and Develops life-long skills – Camps provide the right instruction, equipment and facilities for kids to enhance their sports abilities, their artistic talents, and their adventure skills. The sheer variety of activities offered at camp, makes it easy for kids to discover and develop what they like to do.
Camp helps kids develop who they are and Grow more independent – Camp is the perfect place for kids to practice making decisions for themselves without parents and teachers guiding every move. Managing their daily choices in the safe, caring environment of camp, children welcome this as a freedom to blossom in new directions.
At camp we play! and have free time for unstructured play – Free from the overly-structured, overly-scheduled routines of home and school, life at camp gives children much needed free time to just play. Camp is a slice of carefree living where kids can relax, laugh, and be silly all day long.
Camp builds teamwork and helps kids Learn social skills – Coming to camp means joining a close-knit community where everyone must agree to cooperate and respect each other. When they live with others, kids share chores, resolve disagreements, and see firsthand the importance of sincere communication.
So, let’s begin the day with gusto and joy.
