Sleepaway Camps Benefits
- According to a recent USA Today study, more than 7500 summer camps are located throughout the country. That means there are plenty of opportunities available for kids across America.
- Research shows that summer camps help children build self-confidence, learn to be independent, and develop social skills. “Camp is an opportunity for them to gain independence from parents or guardians and have their own space in which they can learn about themselves,” according to Roberta Lippman, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist who specializes in working with children at the Alivio Medical Group in New York City.
Open minded campers
- 41% of children who attended a sleepaway camp last year say they learned something valuable about other cultures or countries. We help our campers to live a multilingual experience.
- 96% of campers say they have made a new friend at camp. When kids attend a summer camp, they will make friends from all over the world. Guaikinima summer camp programs mix campers from Texas with campers from California and those from Florida, for instance. Friendships like these will last forever.
Sleepaway Camps in America
- 34% of parents say their child has been to day camp by their 10th birthday. Most experts recommend sending children at least 7-8 years old to benefit fully from everything on offer.
- The average age for a child’s first sleepaway camp experience is eight years old. In Guaikinima, our camp program with sleepaway stays is oriented toward children between 6 and 16 years old.
- 49% of children ages 10-14 attend day camps annually, but only 14% attend sleepaway camps annually (according to 2016 data).
- Every year, more than 49% of US children attend a summer camp.
- Summer camps have been around for a very long time. They’ve been around since the 1800s in North America.
