Are you ready for Summer?
Finally, it’s that time of the year for which every student craves. It’s time to do all the fun activities along with a bit of learning. “IT’S SUMMERTIME”
How do you keep your kids entertained and active during the summer season? Do you get involved with them in the activities they perform? How often are those activities a learning experience for your child? To answer all these questions, we bring forward a list of fun-filled, exciting, and challenging ideas for summer camp activities.
Whiz Kid summer camp ideas include games, crafts, projects, experiments, and more. These activities will keep your child engaged and delighted throughout that learning process.
Here is our compilation of various summer camp activities for kids which will make their vacations much more livelier and entertaining through fun-oriented activities and learnings.
We Believe that by this age, students are able to manage themselves independently. Therefore, we encourage students to go out for hiking, trekking, and camping. These experiences are great learning for a child’s development process. It helps students with self-control and self-development and also facilitates teamwork and coordination.
Having a collection of your own is something you can always be proud of. Summertime is the best time to expand your collection base. Collections can range from coins to bottle caps.
This is the perfect time to make your child start to get involved in daily household chores. You can start cooking and make them understand what are the different recipes and items used.
In these classes, students are taught more about developing their personality and showcasing it towards others. They are taught speaking skills, writing skills, actions and dramas, decision making, etc. These personality development classes are equally fun and are much more important for the lifetime of the child.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Why are summer activities important?
Summer programs allow youth to explore new interests. Unlike the classroom, most summer camps allow youth to choose which activities they’d like to participate in and allows physical exercise unlike indoor games.
What is the importance of indoor games?
Indoor games, especially during a time when everyone has to stay home is a necessity to provide a break from studying and learning. By themselves, they are important in a student’s life. They can also be coupled with the educational activities to make learning more fun.
How many weeks does my child needs to attend?
Some children come for just a week, though many stay for several, and some for the whole summer. We have found that while we can see growth in a child from just one week of our program, we have seen much larger gains from children who come for multiple weeks. Last year we surveyed our staff and 95% of them “Agreed” or “Strongly Agreed” that campers who attend two or more weeks of WKLC Summer Camp leave with the experience of better creative thinkers, collaborators and with more resilience.
Should my child bring a lunch?
We provide everything and serve nutritionally balanced meals. They do need to bring a water bottle to stay hydrated.
What should my child wear?
Campers should come in comfortable clothes that can get messy. They will be moving around and working with a variety of materials, some of which may end up on their clothing. For field trips they need to wear WKLC Tshirt (mandatory). We sell the Tshirts here.
Should my child bring sunscreen?
Campers will have time outside each day, so if you would like them to wear sunscreen, please apply it in the morning before they come. You are welcome to send them with additional sunscreen to reapply in the afternoon. We will remind campers of this option and do our best to facilitate.
