    A brief glance at the variety of Sudbury summer camps 

    With both day and overnight camps, Sudbury families have many options. Camp is a popular way to enhance or augment learning during the summer months, and academic camps in the city teach subjects like engineering and math. STEM camps are increasingly popular. Kids can also find tech camps and arts camps in Sudbury. For kids with special needs, camps support ADHD as well as kids with physical disabilities

    Perhaps the greatest challenge is getting kids—and parents—to just try camp the first time, to see how enjoyable the experience is. Here’s a look at why a Sudbury summer camp, in fact, gives kids a big advantage in life, with links to more information on our sister site, OurKids.net: 

    Six advantages kids’ gain at Sudbury kids’ camp 

    Communication skills. Camp is rife with interactions, with both other campers and leaders. Kids and teens meet experienced campers and newbies. They learn to share ideas, work with, and listen to others. Conversations can be fun and light, or weeklong experiences can lead to deep talks and personal sharing. It implicitly teaches rich lessons in respecting others’ viewpoints, in a setting that's constructive and supportive. Learn more about how kids develop communication skills at camp

    Responsibility. Kids at camp learn to take care of their own stuff, as well as caring for their own safety and well-being. They become more accountable to others—and most importantly, to themselves. They see—and deal with—the consequences of their actions. It's a unique “school” for learning to think on their feet and on their own. Learn more about how kids develop responsibility at camp.  

    Resilience. This is a deep-seated character trait that’s most difficult to measure, hardest to come by, and perhaps the greatest skill acquired, especially at overnight camps in Sudbury. Camp challenges kids and campers learn how to persevere in difficult situations. They learn the importance of a positive attitude. Learn more about how kids develop resilience at camp.

    Independence. No matter what kind of Sudbury camp you go to, you’ll have to make decisions on your own, set goals, and take responsibility for your actions. Parents throughout the ages agree that this is one of the most important, easily recognizable benefits of camp. Learn more about how camp helps kids develop independence

    Leadership development. All of the above are important leadership skills, of course, and every camp experience builds these skills. This is especially true the more often you go back. Campers learn to lead by example, delegate tasks, and help others. There are also camps that focus on leadership growth

    Appreciation of nature. In an era with increasing concerns about the impact we're having on the natural world, camp’s immersion in nature seems more critical than ever. It's just one more gift parents give their kids when they go to camp. Sudbury camps induce a rich appreciation for nature, preserving the land, and protecting wildlife.

    How to find the right camp for our child

    When choosing among Sudbury camps, here’s a starter list of questions that will help you choose the right fit for your family.: 

    • Can the camp provide a sample schedule? How much time is spent on your child’s favourite activities? How will the camp’s activities benefit your child? 
    • How do counsellors and leaders deal with poor behaviour? Does the camp have counsellors trained in bullying prevention? Are counsellors all police-checked?
    • What is the policy with regard to food allergies and special diets? If your child has any allergies or diet considerations, how will this affect their experience? 
    • Can the camp provide testimonials from previous families or campers? You can look through reviews in the list of camps linked to above, also. Do reviews resonate with you?
