Benefits of Summer Camp

Did you know that going to camp has a positive impact on campers & staff? The American Camp Association (ACA) launched a study in 2017 focusing on the outcomes of working or attending camp. The study showed the benefits of summer camp on young people and how they thrive in two areas of their lives: academic & workplace.

Below is a list of some of the things they learned from the study for those who attended or worked at a summer camp:

  • Increased appreciation for living in the moment
  • Increased appreciation for individual differences
  • Independence
  • Willingness to try new things
  • Identification of hobbies/interests
