3 Reasons You Should Send Your Kids to Day Camp

Here's what our Families are Saying!

Parent of 3rd grade child, 3rd Summer at Hillcroft

Great Day Camp in Hudson Valley

My daughter has gone to Camp Hillcroft for the past two summers, and we anticipate many more. The camp is extremely well-organized with a wide variety of activities, including a strong swimming program. She is outdoors every day and comes home tired but happy. She does see friends from school at camp, but also has many new "camp friends" that we look forward to seeing each year. I am glad that she has an opportunity to develop interests and confidence in a supportive, friendly environment in the summer.

Sending kids off to a day camp has long been a part of the summer experience. As the team at Camp Hillcroft in Lagrangeville, NY, explains, today’s camps are better than ever, offering a wide variety of wholesome activities for your children to enjoy. It’s a great place for your kids to enjoy new experiences they wouldn’t get at home, but that’s not the only reason why you should send your kids to day camp.

Here are three great benefits of sending your kids to a day camp during the summer:

  • Better Summer Activities: Far too many kids spend their summers glued to their smartphone or a video game. By sending your child to a day camp, they’ll be able to participate in arts and crafts and fun outdoor activities. It can help your child develop a talent and nurture a love for the outdoors while creating memories that will last a lifetime.
  • Structured Routine: One of the biggest challenges kids face after an unstructured summer vacation is readjusting to the routine of the school day. Attending a day camp helps alleviate this common problem by providing children with a structured environment. Kids are dropped off in the morning, participate in supervised activities throughout the day, and return home in the evening. This structure makes it easier to get back into the standard routine when the school year starts again.
  • Improved Social Skills: At day camp, your child can form lasting friendships. By participating in activities together without the distractions of schoolwork or a smartphone, your child will learn how to better engage with new people, a skill that will play an important role for the rest of their life.
