In just about 2 months we will have the first week of our 2018 summer camps in Rochester, NY at Northern Hemisphere Gym! Summer camps are a perfect way for your child to develop themselves, cultivate relationships and have fun at the same time. Summer camps have been around for decades and can provide your child with pivotal skills they can carry throughout their life.

So how can our summer camps in Rochester, NY help your child prepare for adulthood?

 

1. Decision Making

Summer camp forces your child to learn to make decisions, sometimes even in an instant. Your child will have to master decision making throughout their camp experience. Not only will their decision-making skills improve, but they will also gain confidence throughout the process. Further, your child will learn who to accept guidance from.

2. Teamwork

Teamwork is a life skill everyone needs to acquire. Luckily, summer camp will have your child ahead of the game when it comes to knowing how to be an active member of a team. Through team activities, your child will gain an understanding of the importance of communication and work together toward a bigger purpose or goal. Team activities will instill the importance of investing in others so the whole team benefits versus just one individual.

3. Trying New Things

We don’t realize how much we love our comfort zone until we are pushed out of it. Summer camp will encourage your child to expand their limits by putting themselves out there and trying new things. Through these new experiences and activities, your child will build character, courage, determination, and focus. By having the flexibility to push their boundaries your child will gain an understanding of what it takes to be productive outside of their comfort zone.
