Benefits of Camp
Children's eco camp is invaluable for the younger generations. Concern for the environment is essential for society to thrive in the future. At the same time, young kids spend more time indoors around computers, video games, and the television, and less time outdoors enjoying nature. By devoting time to learning about the environment, to discovering the infinite wonders of nature, and to developing creative ways to preserve and maintain the ecosystem, children learn to care for the earth.
There are many environmental camps to choose from, each with its own characteristics; yet, they all offer the same benefits. Many day and overnight camps have plenty of hands-on eco activities for kids, such as planting an organic garden, or making crafts with recycled materials. Through interactive activity, children may learn green skills and then practice them at home. They also may develop an interest in innovation, figuring out new, creative ways to be eco-friendly.
Another benefit is an interest in nature. Living in urban and suburban areas, many children have few chances to walk in the woods, to observe animals, insects, and plants in their natural habitat, and to simply explore and play in the great outdoors. Children's eco camps are specifically designed to cultivate an appreciation and connection with nature.
