Hi Camp Parents!
I can’t wait to see everyone at the reunion on Sunday!! It always reminds me about the power of camp in a child’s life even when we’re far from summer and Greeley, Pa.
If you haven’t read it, I wanted to share the article “ A Brain Tonic for Children” by Gretchen Reynolds, that appeared in the New York Times recently. http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/10/08/how-exercise-can-boost-the-childs-brain/?_r=0
In September in “Pediatrics”, researchers at the University of Illinois published findings that proved that organized physical activity in 8 and 9 year olds improved their mental skills.
Camp does many things. In addition to the fun of high energy activity, the friends that come with improving social skills, I believe that a well-organized and supervised camp experience like ours can develops a child’s good judgment, problem s-solving skills and mental acuity.
The positive impact of camp can last for an instant, a season and for a lifetime.
