Is Your Kid Ready for Kids Sports Camps?
Attending sports camp is a great way for kids of all ages to increase their skills and become better players, whatever their sport of choice is. When looking for a sports camp for your kid this summer, consider whether your child is ready for the experience before signing them up.
Being ready can mean several things. If you are looking at overnight camps, make sure your child is ready to be away from home, possibly without contact with you, for a week. Overnight camps are great for older kids who may be craving a little freedom, but for younger kids, it can be too intense. If your child is older, or very mature for their age, then an overnight camp may be a good option for them. They will learn a great deal and have a chance to make new friends.
Make sure your kid is physically ready for camp, as well. If the camp is a day camp that only lasts a day or two, it probably won’t be an issue, but an overnight camp or any weeklong, intensive experience, will require that your child is in great physical condition. If they haven’t been keeping up with their exercise in the off-season, jumping right into an experience like camp can be too much for them. If you aren’t sure your child is physically ready, send them to a camp of shorter duration and make sure they start training again well before camp starts.
Lastly, make sure your child really wants to attend sports camp. Believe it or not, some parents send their kid to a sports camp, not because their child really wants to attend, but because the parents feel that the child should go, whether they have shown an interest in the sport or not. If you kid hates hockey, for example, sending them to a hockey camp will not turn them into a fan. It can have the exact opposite effect.
