Do Summer Camps
It’s time to begin those summer plans once more. When you consider that you only get 18 precious summer breaks with your kids, the question of what to prioritize - what will have a lasting impact with memories to cherish? - becomes all the more pressing. You may find yourself wondering, how do summer camps fit in with your plans? Are they helpful to kids? We at Kidcreate Studio - Oak Park are confident that you will find our art focused summer camps near you are educational, impactful and fun!
Your child will come away from one of our camps with new skills and memories to cherish for a lifetime - and that is what summer camp is all about.
It turns out that there are some well established benefits of camps for kids. Camps have the unique ability to provide an immersive experience for children. In this environment children explore new activities, build new skills and become part of a community made up of their peers and adults that serve as role models. Some of these relationships may even last a lifetime. The memories certainly will.

Summer Camp Benefits
Some of the known benefits of camp include the following:
Self-Esteem and Confidence BuildingExposure to new experiences and challenges can develop a child’s self-esteem and confidence by giving them the opportunity to see themselves as they excel at new activities, overcome fears and succeed in new roles.
Socialization. Teamwork. Friendship.As kids navigate their way through the activities at camp they will naturally find themselves building bonds with their peers. Many camp activities focus on teamwork. In this safe environment kids are able to build their social skills while interacting with peers from varying backgrounds.
Independence and ResilienceThe time at camp away from mom and dad - even if just for a few hours - allows a child to depend on their inner voice and to begin to build a sense of identity. Exposure to the many new activities and people at camp will naturally foster growth. This growth will include an awareness of one’s strengths and weaknesses. This greater understanding of self will contribute to more self-reliance for the child. As the child becomes more practiced in trusting his or her self, and as the child faces challenges, their resilience in difficult situations will be enhanced.
Screen-Free PlayAn important aspect to a healthy life in our modern world is moderated screen time. While at camp, the screen-free play will not only be filled with fun moments that allow a child to live and learn in the present, but also promote healthy living habits. Being active, being in the moment, and positive social interactions are all crucial aspects of a healthy life and they are all present at camp during each screen-free activity.
In addition to these valuable benefits, summer camps near you like those offered at Kidcreate Studio - Oak Park have some additional advantages.
Kidcreate Studio - Oak Park Camps
The best part about creative learning is that it offers children a break from the rigorous setting of the classroom. While the kids explore the wonderful world of art, they’ll be having so much fun they won’t even realize they’re learning.
Kidcreate Studio has plenty of fun art projects for kids to get messy and creative! We have a variety of mediums we use and teach children so they’ll experience everything that art has to offer. At the end of the day, the kids can take their projects home to hang up on the fridge.
