Why Summer Camp is Worth Every Penny

Why Summer Camp is Worth Every Penny

When most parents think about summer programs for kids, they feel that programs are created more for smaller children, like toddlers. However, there are camp options for older children to have fun when out of school for the summer. Summer camps in Toronto offer programming that cater to what older children enjoy, from sports to arts and crafts. When your child is out of school for the summer, they need something to do. Children are often looking for ways to spend their time, as they are used to scheduled activities. By enrolling in summer day camp, your child can stay busy, have fun and make new friends.

Unique Programming

For toddler and smaller day camp, the programs are more geared towards giving parents a few hours of alone time. Kids enjoy activities and play but for older children, the summer day camps are programmed more to offer specialty areas. Take for example the options offered by Zodiac Day Camp. From Creative Kidz to Mega Sports, your child will have the ability to enroll in a program that suits their individual tastes.

Creative programs like the Creative Kidz offered by Zodiac provides a variety of artistic activities. Your child will be able to use their imagination to unleash their creativity with a number of mediums including paint, print making, sculpture and more. Additional programming include exploring the world via science and discovery, sports-oriented programs, adventure options and more.

These types of programs are open to children ages 6.5 to 12.5, which gives this age group plenty to enjoy. Kids will love having activities to take part in during the summer months and the opportunity to make new friends in the process.

Leadership Programs

For older children in their teens, programming is offered to help establish leadership in the community. Leadership programs are open to kids ages 12.5 to 15.5. They offer workshops and training sessions to see your child learn from leadership coordinators and experts in child development, effective discipline and other areas.
