Adventure Awaits: Explore the Benefits of Spring Break Day Camps

As spring break approaches, you may be thinking of childcare options for your child that won’t have them sitting in front of a screen all day. A great option that ensures your child has fun while giving you the peace of mind that they’re in a safe environment is a spring break day camp! This blog will go over some of the main benefits of registering your child for a spring break camp this year!


Get Your Child Used To Being At A Day Camp

If you were planning to register your child for summer camp for the first time this year, spring break camp is a great starter to help them feel more comfortable. Before jumping in and having them go to camp every day all summer long, start by sending them to camp for spring break. They’ll be able to get used to the facility, meet the staff, and start making friends that they will probably see again at summer camp. After spring break camp you and your child will be better prepared for starting summer camp!


Camps Help Keep Your Child Active

The weather is getting warmer and it’s a great time to spend outside and be active! But for many kids who are home alone during break, spending time outside alone isn’t the safest option. Sending your child to a day camp ensures that they get moving and have the opportunity to be active during the day! We know springtime can have unpredictable weather so even if spring break gets a little cold or rainy, it’s okay! One of the benefits of our Spring Break Camp is our indoor Crossplex facility! Even if it’s raining cats and dogs outside, your child can still run and play all day thanks to our indoor facility. 


Camps Allow Your Child To Keep Up With Their School Routine

Although spring break is much shorter than summer break, the time away from school can sometimes lead your child to slip out of their routine of getting up every morning for school. This can make going back to school overwhelming and stressful. Since Spring Break is so close to the end of the school year, you don’t want to add the stress of falling out of routines onto an already distracting time. Registering your child for a spring break camp still gives them a break from schoolwork and the opportunity for fun socializing while still keeping them in their routine.


Camps Mean Less Stress For You

One of the most important benefits of sending your child to a day camp is the peace of mind it provides you! Do you have to work while your child is off from school? Are you worried about leaving them at home alone or with an older sibling? Spring break camp takes the worry off your mind! Sending your child to a day camp during spring breaks gives you the peace of mind that your child is being watched in a safe environment. Also, you’ll know they’re getting active and spending time socializing with peers and participating in fun and educational activities!


Camps Offer Cognitive Stimulation & Educational Activities

Day camps are designed to be both entertaining and educational. Many camps incorporate activities that stimulate cognitive development, such as problem-solving games, creative arts and crafts, and science experiments. These activities not only keep your child's mind engaged but also foster a love for learning outside of the traditional classroom setting. At the Police Activities League of Egg Harbor Township and Atlantic County, STEM is a foundational part of our mission! So all of our camps include fun STEM-based activities to help expand our campers' learning while keeping them engaged! The best part is, is that if your child develops a strong passion for these activities, we offer workshops all year round so that they can keep doing what they love and learning about STEM!
