Summer Camp Importance

After a full year of hectic studies and pressure from parents to perform better in the academic year, students finally get the time to enjoy themselves. Yes, you all got it right. Here I am talking about Summer Vacations. Every child waits for it so anxiously. They start planning for their vacations a month before.

There are many things a child plans for his/her summer vacations. Some visit their grandparents place while others join some or the other activity. Some students even try and complete their syllabus in these summer vacations. Parents’ also try and make full utilization of these breaks for their kids.

Resources have confirmed that children who remain idle during their vacations tend to perform sluggish in their after break examination than before ones. It’s always good to involve them in some learning habit. The children maintain a routine life. They follow the same time table as in a school like getting up early in the morning and always coming with a view to learn something new. Apart from this, they can develop a social circle. They meet different students from different schools and different environments. Here they can also generate friendships of a life time and should be encouraged to do so.

All in all, it can be said that there are more advantages in letting a child join some or the other activity in vacations to develop not only physically but mentally, emotionally, socially and psychologically.
