Camp Builds High Self-Esteem and Teaches Social Skills

girlsOne of the best parts of coming to science camp with Mountain and Sea Adventures (MSA) is the bonding that happens between teachers and students, bringing the entire class closer together. This provides the perfect opportunity for classes to break the ice and get comfortable with each other at the beginning of a new school year, or to celebrate their year together before summer break.

Teamwork and high morale

The challenges students face at camp structure the opportunity for them to learn teamwork, and to discover that they can achieve more when they work together. When all the children are cheering each other on to rise above their fears and challenges, it boosts the overall morale and attitude of each student.

To hear their classmates cheering them on gives each child an incredible amount of encouragement to rise above their inhibitions and achieve things they thought they could not before. This helps to improve their self-image and belief in what they are capable of, even discovering strengths and talents they might not of known they had before.

Forming bonds that last a life time

The camp atmosphere is a very magical and special place, it is a safe place for every child to just be a kid and try out new things. This is often a time of tremendous growth and the friendships made during this stage leave a deep impact on the lives of all whom attend. Students often times make friends with people they might not have gotten along with before, and learn to see beyond what ever petty differences might have been coming between them back in their schools and communities.

Close friendships become even more special at camp, and students learn just how valuable each other are in their lives. These bonds last long after the students depart camp, and even far after they graduate from class.
