  • Beating The Summer Gap
    Every kid loves summer vacation.  But that long break from school over summer can be detrimental to their education.  Kids have trouble retaining information when they don’t have the consistency and structure that going to school provides.  However, here are three easy ways that parents can help their children stay sharp during the downtime.Educational Games:  Summer is supposed to be a vacation, which means it should be fun, but that doesn’t mean learning can’t also happen. Playing educational games helps kids brush up on their studies and helps remind them of things they learned during the school year. Matching games, Scrabble Jr., and Uno are just a few of our favorites! Sports:  Without having somewhere specific they need to go every day, it can be easy for kids to become sedentary. As parents we are all worried about our kids being exposed to too much screen time. Team and individual sports help incorporate physical activity, strategy, teamwork, concentration, focus, and critical thinking. The summer is also a great time to learn a new sport by hitting a few tennis balls or shooting a few hoops! Summer Camp: The best way to reduce summer learning loss is by attending summer camp! At summer camp kids get to be active, and explore many different interests in a safe and secure environment. However, summer camp isn’t just about the fun and friends. Kids get a chance to build important 21st century skills such as communication, collaboration and creativity! While these skills are taught in some schools, at camp our children get to work on them every day. Taking a break from school can be beneficial, especially if kids are getting an education, new skills and activity from exciting and fun summer opportunities.

    The Benefits of Sending Your Child to Summer Camp Summer is fast approaching! Without school to keep them busy everyday, now is the time to ensure your child has a fun and meaningful summer experience.  Here are a few reasons Summer day camp might be the best option.Activity – These days kids are more likely to play on electronic devices than to play outside. Research shows that outdoor play can help improve both a child’s GPA and their physical well being. At Corbin’s Crusaders our campers enjoy swimming, sports, adventure and more! Enjoying sports and activity now helps promote a healthy lifestyle that our campers carry into adulthood.  Social skills – Just as important as physical fitness are social skills. With the growth of technology kids are becoming more isolated, but at programs that promote positive team building techniques through sports encourage campers to make friends, and forge bonds in the real world with kids that share similar interests. At Corbin’s Crusaders our campers make friends that last a lifetime! They also are exposed to incredible professional mentors who help guide them through college and beyond. Range of activities – At active sports and adventure summer camps, children engage in a wide range of activities from basketball to swimming, to hiking, to archery.  Kids have a diverse experience, and explore their passions and talents in a pressure free environment that they may want to continue in the future. Many of our campers go on to pursue their new passions during the school year! Interested in learning more about a summer at camp?
