During the summer months, parents often look for a change in routine and new activities for children to enjoy. With young children who are 2-4 years of age, a range of activities must constantly be planned to keep the child engaged. This can be difficult for parents who want to spend time with their children and enjoy activities together, as sometimes the activity prep and clean-up can be a lot of extra work. Thankfully, there are programs available that allow parents and tots to enjoy time together without the parent having to prepare or come up with ideas. Day camps are offered for children in this age range that can include parents and allow the parent and child to enjoy activities together on a daily basis.
Day camp programs have been set up for children ages 2 to 4 that provide access to classes that children of this age range might not normally have. For example, crafts are an activity that can be fun for kids but something that this age range needs help with. At day camp, your child will receive assistance from counselors or even from you when attending. Parents love going to such classes as they provide a way to have fun with the child without all the mess or fuss of preparation. Most parents want to take part in such activities with their child but just do not have the time or the energy to set up craft stations. By attending day camp, your child can have access to such activities and you can join in when time permits to spend quality time with your child.
Young children between the ages of 2 to 4 can become clingy to the parent and have little self-confidence. With day camp, a child in this age range will have the ability to learn self-reliance as well as self-confidence. To take part in fun activities such as dance class, swimming, crafts and more, over time, your child will look forward to camp as they begin to experience things on their own.
Even children in this young age group need to make friends. Starting early with interactions with others helps the child to learn how to make friends, how to share and get along with others. Children need this interaction so that they can build quality relationship skills that will carry on to their teenage years as well as into adulthood.
This is also a good opportunity for parents to make new friends and meet other parents with similar aged children. It creates an opportunity to arrange new play dates over the years to come.
