What’s a better way to make friends than camping? Talk to all the people around you. Get to know them and communicate regularly with your roommates. This can be helpful to you because those kids are your family for the next few days and if you need something, they might be able to help. Apart from this, you will have more fun in your camp when you have some friends around you to accompany you. Memories are mostly made with friends. If you are extremely shy and are usually unable to talk to people, this would be the best time to come out and communicate. This will boost your confidence like no other activity.
The more you participate, the more memories you make. Camps have many activities apart from the ones you sign in for. If it’s a dance camp, you might do other stuff like playing some sports or some group games. It’s best to volunteer to play. If you know you are good at something, then come out and show your talents. Participating in everything can also enhance your skills and knowledge. These will also keep you busy and not let you get bored. Be proactive!
At camps, learning is fun. You are usually taught anything with new techniques. Try and make the most of it. Learn different skills, games and lessons properly so that you can easily use them in future. Remember, this is what you have joined the camp for. If you are in a sports camp, make sure you listen to your professional instructor properly and apply that in your game. Since there are only a few kids in each camp, hence it is possible to pay attention to every student. So making the best out of this opportunity is a must. Since you love the thing that you are learning, the improvement will also be really fast. Fun and games are good and very essential, but paying equal attention to the skills you actually want to develop is necessary.
If your child is going off to the camp or if you are a teenager who is going to attend a camp, make sure you take your journal with you. You can note down all the activities in that and read them later when you are back home. If you are a parent who is sending your child off to camp, consider buying them a journal so that they can write something about the days they spent in the camp and make them read it again when they get back home. This can be a very interesting experience for the kids.
Although many camps would not allow the children their cameras, someone in the staff would surely have a camera. And in today’s time of smart phones, everyone has a camera. Talk to your administration and ask them to click pictures of your kid. Or if you are a senior, you can yourself go to the director or controller and ask them to click pictures of you. I am sure they would be more than happy to help you. Most of the camp staff click pictures of the group of children that come to the camp. So if they have a social networking page, you can get your pictures from them. What’s better than clicking pictures to make memories?
