The Kids That Need California Overnight Summer Camp the Most
What kind of kid is yours?
The oldest child:
Can benefit greatly from a California overnight summer camp because camps are a rare chance for them to enjoy the benefits of “big brothers” and “big sisters”. Naturally, any child also needs near-peer relationships with their counselors and other campers. Sometimes it’s nice for these older siblings to have an older kid to talk to!
The youngest child:
Often lives in the shadow of older peers or siblings and may have grown weary of hearing about all the cool stuff they can’t do. At a California overnight summer camp like Catalina Island Camps, the focus is on all the things they CAN do and they’ll be able to do them with kids that are close in age!
The shy child:
Often gets lost in the shuffle during the school year, but overnight summer camp allows for more time and opportunity for kids to get to know each other. Counselors at Catalina Island Camps make sure that all kids are acknowledged and encouraged. And you have to remember, every child there is also looking for friends! This can be a great opportunity for your child that may be a little shy.
The confident child:
Probably doesn’t need as much encouragement as the shy child, but this doesn’t mean they cannot benefit from a push to try new things, and occasionally fail at them, in a supportive environment. Part of building lifelong confidence involves learning to fail with grace. The activities we offer are great opportunities for these confident children to do some things they may be good at already, but also have the chance to get out of their comfort zone and try something new.
The cautious child:
Benefits from a California overnight summer camp like Catalina Island Camps by being encouraged to try exciting new activities in an atmosphere that is safe, with well-trained counselors and state-of-the-art equipment. Our counselors are trained to help your child feel comfortable in their new environment.
The athletic child:
Grows at camp, by participating in group activities where the process is more important than product and everyone learns to be a better sport. Being a good sport is very important to us here at Catalina Island Camps and your child will no doubt learn to be supportive and grow in areas that aren’t necessarily based on physical skill.
The successful child:
Learns about leadership and sharing what they know with others. Wouldn’t it be great to know that your child is helping out others? They’ll get this opportunity plenty throughout their overnight camp experience.
The struggling child:
Gets a chance to start fresh at a California overnight camp! They can highlight skills and abilities that they may not get a chance to demonstrate elsewhere. They also have a clean slate to show other kids who they really are and make awesome friends. Not to mention, the struggling child often could use a change of scenery!
