Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)
What are the benefits of enrolling my child in summer camp?
A good summer camp program for kids offers much more than activities and arts and crafts. Our program also offers a community for your child to join. Your child will learn to work with other campers, and get along with children from a variety of backgrounds. For example, campers may learn to work together to accomplish tasks, work together to win a camp-wide competition, or work to help one another learn new skills.
The obvious benefits of summer camp are all the new skills your child will learn. It doesn’t matter if your tween attends a sports camp, an adventure camp, or a program that offers a little bit of everything, summer camp will teach him or her new skills. At Academy of Martial Arts we implement practicing Tae Kwon Do into the summer camp experience for kids. The experience may also help him or her find a hobby or a life passion that he or she otherwise may never have known about.
Making new friends and growing socially: It can be difficult for kids to go to a summer camp when they don't know anyone else there. Our program makes it easy for kids to find friends fast. A camp friendship may last a lifetime, or only a summer, but either way camp offers children the opportunity to branch out from their regular circle of friends and learn to connect with other people in positive ways.
Gain decision making skills: Summer camp will help your child learn how to make choices. What should I eat for lunch? Should I participate in this activity or that one? Because camp counselors typically don’t hover the way parents are known to do, your child will be responsible for making many decisions on his or her own. And that’s very good practice for the teen years ahead, which offer responsible decision making opportunities every day.
How do you motivate my child?
When children and teens participate in activities and complete tasks, they build confidence and competence. By constantly participating in activities in which kids feel successful, academically, socially, and physically, children develop an instrinsic motivation because sucess feels good! Through developing higher levels of confidence and doing things they thought they could not do, children break barriers of fear and laziness that hinders their growth. This helps cement the basic motivation to be successful, independent, and self-directed.
Tae Kwon Do and other martial arts offer students to grow with positive self-discipline and self-motivation. Our instructors are experienced with motivating and activating children.
