Summer is the best time for many of us but for children it’s the happiest time of the year. A long vacation that involves no books and no school. Mostly what is actually done in vacations is that children waste their time doing random things and there’s so much advantage that can be taken of these 2 months or 3 months that we get! Students prefer going for holidays or just lazing around but honestly vacations should be taken extreme advantage of what students can’t do during school days.
Every child has a different passion or different interest and thankfully there are different summer camps or classes available to cater to every child’s interest. Summer camps are not only good for learning and developing but also a great time to make new friends and also help in the development of the child towards the outside world. They learn to adapt to new environments, learn new things, socialize with different people etc.
