Benefits of Sending Your Child to Summer Camp

Nobody loves like a parent, and the only thing that can even come close to a parent’s love for their child is a parent’s annoyance at their child. Kids require a lot of work, and all too often breaks are few and far between for parents. Luckily, there is a way to show your love AND get a break from the kiddos at the same time by signing up for summer camp at our Edison trampoline park. Summer camp isn’t just good for parents, it’s good for kids too. Here are just some of the benefits your kids can reap from attending summer camp at one of our Edison trampoline parks.

Unplug

Raising kids today isn’t the same as it was 20 or 30 years ago. Old school parents may act hard, but they’ve never had to contend with all-pervasive technologies like parents today have to. Tantrums from taking away an iPhone or console are much more severe than tantrums from taking away television privileges used to be because the reward systems built into these devices are more psychologically addictive. The information age comes with a price, which is why it’s a great idea to unplug for a while to give your kids some perspective. Summer camp at our Edison trampoline park is the perfect way to do that, because not even the mighty technologies of tomorrow can compete with the pure joy of a trampoline park!

Gain Confidence

We often think of people as inherently confident or not, but in reality confidence is largely determined by how you’re exposed to the world around you. There are all kinds of theories for how to build confidence in children, but in general it boils down to interactions with peers in a positive environment. Our trampoline activities bring out all the best aspects of competition, all under the supervision of a trained Rebounderz referee. It’s a great way to expose your kids to the world of interpersonal interaction in an environment conducive to growth and confidence building.

Gain Independence

Separation anxiety can be a real struggle for children sometimes. It’s hard to suddenly be taken away from your primary provider and caregiver, especially when the world is so new. But since it has to be done eventually, there is no better way than in a fun environment with responsible supervisors. Chances are, even if they start to feel home sick, once they get going on the trampoline park all their troubles will melt away.

Socialization

If you’ve ever met an avid camp-goer, you’re probably aware that summer camps often culminate in very tight knit communities. This can be great for your child’s socialization, and they might even make friends for life. With healthy competition, a fun environment, and adult supervision, we mitigate any chances of your children building up negative associations with their peers.

Exercise

Instilling regular exercise habits in kids is probably one of the most beneficial things a parent can do. Not only does it teach them discipline, keep them healthier, make them stronger, and tire them out at the end of the day, but it improves their quality of life as well! There is one caveat though, because when exercise is forced, motivation to do it goes way down. The best way to get around this is by making exercise fun, and one of the best ways to do that is a trip to our Edison trampoline park!
