Mill Basin Day Camp Wants You To Know Why Kids Need It Now More Than Ever
How do we prepare our children with the skills and more importantly, the competencies they will need to tackle changes in our world? We could start with a positive camp experience. A quality camp experience provides our children with the opportunity to learn powerful lessons in community, character-building, skill development, and healthy living — a meaningful, engaged, and participatory environment.
Camp promotes community. Camp is a place where kids can “practice” growing up stretching their social, emotional, physical, and cognitive muscles outside the context of their immediate family. This is what childhood is supposed to provide.
Camp creates future leaders. The camp experience offers kids a close-up look at compassionate leadership through the camp director, counselors, resident nutritionist, and other camp personnel. And kids get loads of opportunities to practice being a leader themselves — song leader, lunch table leader, team captain, the list goes on and on.
Camp has a lasting impact. One of the greatest gifts you can give a child is a sense of success and achievement.
Camp teaches kids how to be active participants, ask questions, ask for help, and try new things. Now more than ever, kids need camp.
Summers are for having fun. It’s a time to spend with friends & make memories and experiences that last a lifetime. That’s what Mill Basin Day Camp is all about. We are dedicated to providing an exciting and fulfilling camp experience for both children and their parents by providing of fun, recreational, social and educational activities.
