Five Reasons to Attend a Summer Camp in Massachusetts

It’s a tradition here in the United States.  Every summer millions of parents send their children to sleep-away camps. Camp Half Moon, being one of the best little summer camps in Massachusetts, offers so many activities that will change your child’s life. We have come up with five reasons why kids should go to summer camp.

It Encourages Independence

Being away from home at Camp Half Moon will make your child much more independent and self-reliant. You won’t be there to serve them, so they’ll have to learn to do more for themselves. Don’t worry! They won’t be on their own, but they won’t be smothered, either.

They’ll Make New Friends

Here at Camp Half Moon your child will meet kids from all over the World! When your children go away to camp, they’ll meet so many new people, and they'll may make friends for a lifetime.

They’ll Try New Things

Unless you have a lake for swimming and canoeing, plus a basketball court, martial arts studio, and archery range at your home, chances are, your children will be able to try new things at Camp Half Moon. They might overcome fears, or even discover talents and interests they never even knew they had!

They’ll See Diversity

Camp Half Moon will expose your children to people of all different background, cultures, ethnicities, religions, and races. They might hear new languages, learn new cultural practices, and try new foods and hear different types of music. This is incredibly valuable, because as technology brings the world closer together, they’ll be learning how to interact with the people they’ll be interacting with later in life.

It Builds Self-Esteem

When your child goes away to this Massachusetts Summer Camp, you’ll notice a big difference in their natural self-esteem. They’ll be more confident, less clingy, and have much more self-esteem. Being away from home gives children the chance to figure out who they are outside of all of their family’ pre-conceived notions.
