As a break from all the hectic school work, kids can spend their summer participating in educational work that doesn’t seem education to them at all. Arts and music are essential in the development of children, teaching them to be creative and to express themselves in healthy ways.
For the crafty pre- or young teen, who likes to sleep in, afternoon camps at Color Me Mine are a great option.
Music camps not only develop a child’s interest and ability to play a musical instrument, but studies show that children’s involvement in music helps develop their mathematical abilities as well. Performing arts camps are equally as important, as they teach kids responsibility, teamwork, and the ability to speak in public.
Or maybe if your child child isn’t the “classical type” he or she could even attend one of the many rock camps in the Philadelphia area and rock on!
