Day camps are a good way to let your children experience their independence and take part in responsibilities. Because of the many activities offered in day camps, children are able to participate with others and therefore develop teamwork and awareness with how their actions affect other people.
Day camps expose children to chores and develop discipline along the way, and plant into them the seeds of responsibility. Knowing the weight of their actions will help them develop their sense of responsibility, and with that they become one step better at leading. Leaders are expected to be responsible people, and day camps nurture these values.
Day camps also offer activities that promote awareness and self worth, letting children discover the extent of their capabilities and show them how they can contribute to the people around them. Knowing that they can do something will help children realize their worth and that they are needed by other people. This will build their self-esteem and give them confidence to participate in group activities.
Other camp activities also require teamwork from time to time, and children can shuffle on responsibilities to know which role they perform best. They will eventually get a chance to lead the group themselves, and as they decide on things, they will learn from mistakes and get encouraged with good decisions. They will learn new ways to approach problems, knowing that giving up easily is a weight not only one will carry, but the rest of the team.
Leadership is developed best with experience, and day camps provide plenty of opportunities for children to learn. Decision-making, self-esteem, discipline, sense of responsibility and developed communication skills are the many attributes that help make a leader, and all these are nurtured in day camps, especially leadership camps. Sports-oriented activities will also develop the child’s sportsmanship as well as his leadership skills, learning that teamwork is a key to success.
