    At a camps for boys only, they are more focused. For example, sports camps for boys only offer campers the chance to focus solely on skill building, competing against other boys in order to better themselves. That notion of focus applies to any kind of camp, in fact, and any boys camp affords the opportunity for male children to learn from each other, independent of considerations about "what the girls are thinking." They undergo unique character development and growth they would not otherwise have access to.

    At a boys camp, your son will take on responsibilities he might otherwise eschew. Boys camps come in a variety of sizes and kinds, including some that focus on sports and many that focus on nature, of course. Boys of all ages benefit from time at boys only camps, and they benefit from being around boys only, who are all at a variety of ages and stages.
