While indoor settings play a significant role in childhood education, the significance of outdoor learning experiences cannot be overlooked. A vast body of research suggests that students who receive the opportunity to learn outdoors excel both academically and socially. Being in natural surroundings helps children develop their senses, aiding their physiological and psychological development.
Employing quality environmental education at an early level is a great way to connect children to the world around them. When children are allowed to learn outside in nature, they analyze and investigate how things around them function. This helps foster the understanding of environmental challenges and their duty toward protecting nature's sensitive ecosystems.
R.A.D Camps understand the importance of environmental education for children and utilize the “No Child Left Inside!” slogan to help get more kids outside and reconnect them with the environment. Our Summer Day Camps provide an opportunity for kids to enjoy learning about the environment through free play, fun, and camaraderie.
Summers bring endless hours of fun and uninterrupted play for children. Days are long; there is plenty of time to play and explore new things. However, soon the unscheduled days can leave a child clueless. Screen time increases, and sibling fights become unmanageable. Therefore, summer day camps are your best bet for balancing out the unstructured, school-free months.
To help your child overcome anxiety and boredom, enroll them in summer day camps. R.A.D. Camps’ Summer Day Camp Programs emphasize free play, fun, camaraderie, and an appreciation for the natural world. The theme of our programs is to let children enjoy the natural surroundings and learn about the environment.
