Summer Camp Building Confidence

When school is over, kids can spend their time at summer camp building confidence. Something invaluable at summer camp is the attention and support from camp counselors and fellow campers. Participating in stress free summer activities with cheers from peers can do so much to help a kid feel successful. Kids get to feel proud of what they’ve accomplished and achieved at camp while being acknowledged and respected by their friends. Learning and developing new skills while being around positive role models and being encouraged by friends, makes camp the best possible place to be this summer. We’re looking forward to seeing everybody!

Summer Camp Is Good For College

10557069_10152229255140233_4558222345190717089_oAlthough you may have heard that summer camp will help your child build skills that will help them in life and improve their self esteem, you may not have realized that it can help them with their college admissions.

Summer camp is good for college for many reasons. Often after a summer at camp kids are inspired and motivated which can help improve grades in order to be accepted into a good college. Summer Camp can help Kids build the confidence needed to submit a strong college application. Summer Camp can help a child gain independence and give them the opportunity to learn how to be responsible for themselves.

Recently, colleges are starting to recognize summer camp as a valuable experience that helps shape responsible adults and future leaders. After years spent at camp many young adults learn what commitment within a community is, and what it’s like to be an important contributer and part of a team. There are few experiences that enable kids to integrate socially in a new environment that is non-threatening like summer camp. The summer camp experience can help to ease the transition when your child starts their new life at college. They’ll already know that they have made adjustments to being away from home before. It’s something they will already know they can do.

Recreation Center Bringing People Together

Friendship Outdoor Recreation Center provides opportunities for bringing people together at our location in Virginia. You and your family, and also local organizations can momentarily get away from your fast paced life and the daily routines. Friendship Outdoor Recreation Center will be an ideal destination in Virginia this coming spring, with a calendar full of exciting programs and events. In total we will serve about 800 people during the months of March through May. We have two Girl Scout groups who will hold their encampments here with activities such as equestrian, campfire, archery, mountain boarding, ropes course, canoeing, and more. This spring, through Fluvanna County Parks and Recreation, we will offer lessons in canoeing and archery. These programs are a great way for adults and children to try something new.

To better serve our staff, our campers, and our Virginia community, Friendship Outdoor Recreation Center as well as Camp Friendship staff have recently received their Lifeguard Instructor Training Certification. Currently we’re fine tuning what key information our Camp Friendship staff need to be outstanding counselors. We will be highlighting some of our staff here, and in our newsletters in the upcoming months.

We couldn’t be more eager for this upcoming spring and summer and hope you feel the same way too! See what’s coming up! We look forward to having you join us for some good fun!
