Despite the uncertainty and difficulties, last year the summer camps were organized, which is why this year we are organizing the Campus summer.
Summer, in fact, is not only about choosing the destination for the next holidays. Whether they are by the sea or in the mountains, but also about organizing the three months of school breaks.
Closed schools and kindergartens mean for us parents to organize the days of our children. And teenagers in another way. Fortunately, valuable help is given to us by the summer campuses which are increasingly numerous and above all well organized and managed.
Speak teens summer camp
The summer campuses, also known as summer camps or simply camps or campuses, are real courses for children and teenagers that take place during the summer and include a very varied program of activities, but the focus is always the same: having fun and above all to experience outside the home with other children and young people of the same age.
The summer campuses, in fact, foresee the passing of a certain period of time, which can vary from 5-6 days up to a month, in a location defined by the organizers. And during which children and young people can try their hand at various courses and above all live experiences in autonomy.
On the other hand, there are several day camps or summer camps where no overnight stay takes place, but only entertainment during the day.
