Can summer camp help prepare a child for college?

Can going to summer camp as a child make you more prepared for college life? Certainly there are many factors, but being homesick and missing parents is a natural thing for a child who goes away from home for the first time. Camp kids are given the opportunity to practice coping at camp in a supportive environment. Maybe these kids are more able to hit the ground running when they step onto their college campus freshmen year? They have independence, confidence and social skills gained from their summers at camp. They know how to make decisions on their own, make friends and miss home and family in a healthy way. At Wyonegonic we help girls experience all of these things and more! For more information, please read this article from Psychology Today.
