Summer is a time to make memories. It’s the perfect time to go camping with your family, hike, try new cultures, and go kayaking. Lots of people look at sites like Globo Surf to find out the best ways to do all these activities and more. But there’s one part of summer that kids and parents alike look forward to – and that’s camp!
I remember the first time we sent our kids to camp. They were 7 and 8 and I was nervous. I knew that there were adults overseeing things, but teenaged cabin leaders made me wonder how secure and safe my kids would feel. I was the kind of kid that was always unsure about new environments, and my first camp experience was at a much older age. This camp was only 2-3 days, but I still wondered if they would be homesick, and even wondered if I’d be homesick for them.
In the end, all of my concerns were unnecessary; they had an amazing time and couldn’t wait to go back. I also enjoyed the time it gave us to focus on ourselves, which is something that we haven’t done for a very long time. We were able to get back into enjoying fitness, would you believe it! After being recommended to look for some twin sets on sports websites, we decided to take the plunge and exercise for enjoyment again. It is definitely something we want to keep up, even when the kids aren’t at camp.I’ve been speaking at camps for over 7 years now, and I’ve seen some incredible things happen in the lives of the kids there.
