Summer camp provides children with a safe, supervised, positive environment, helping them to grow in all aspects. It is one of the only places where laughing and having fun are everyday events and in many cases a vehicle for learning!
The overall camp experience is recognized by leading child development professionals as a valuable experience which can help children mature socially, emotionally, intellectually, morally, and physically. Children attending summer camps make new friends and gain confidence through organized activities in a non-threatening, supportive community environment. Parents have reported that when their children return home from camp they are willing to accept more responsibility, they get along with others better, they have more patience, they are more caring, they understand the importance of giving, and they are more equipped to stand up for what they know is right. These are important qualities that help to build world leaders.
For international campers, summer camp offers even more than that! Summer Camp allows international children the opportunity to live abroad, fully immersed in a safe, supportive, American environment. Campers gain independence, confidence, develop friendships with peers from around the world and create fond memories and experiences that will last a lifetime. This is also the perfect environment for children from non-English speaking countries who want to improve or master their English.
My USA Camp camper program facilitates the placement of children (ages 10-17) within US summer camps that best meet their interests and goals.
Camp recommendations are made with the interests and preferences of the child and family in mind to ensure the most successful experience.
The camper program is also a great way to give students who may be interested in participating in further US experiences, such as the F1 private high school program, an acclimation to the US before beginning a longer academic course of study.
