Why Should Your Child Attend a Summer Camp?, Piermont, New Hampshire

Encouraging kids to play outside and participate in new activities can teach them life lessons they can’t get anywhere else. Kids who attend a summer activity camp have a more productive and meaningful way to enjoy their summer break. Camp Walt Whitman, located in Piermont, NH, provides children with an unforgettable sleepaway summer camp experience. Boys and girls aged 7-15 get to enjoy the beautiful New England scenery while fostering lifelong friendships.

Here are just a few great reasons to enroll your kids in a summer activity camp:

  • Boosts Confidence: Building your child's self-esteem is essential to their development. Summer camp allows them to explore their unique interests and make new friends. For many kids, this is their first taste of independence—and they’ll be proud of how much they’ve grown over the summer.

  • Encourages Camaraderie: When your child goes to summer camp, they will participate in a number of activities that will teach the importance of friendship and teamwork. These skills not only make their camp experience more fun, but they can also be useful in the classroom when fall returns.

  • Develops Character: Being exposed to new sports and social situations will test your child's mental strength while building their character and leadership skills. Organized team games and camp-wide events are designed to teach kids how to work together, speak up, and support one another.

  • Creates Memories: Summer camp allows kids to make memories they can hold onto for a lifetime. As your child matures into an adult, they’ll thank you for giving them that experience—and possibly even pass that joy on to their own children.

By joining summer camp, kids can explore the outdoors and have exciting experiences they'll remember forever.

Camp Walt Whitman is dedicated to helping kids have the adventure of a lifetime with their fun, fully supervised activities. Call (800) 657-8282 or visit their website to learn more about their programs or request a tour.
