What will your child learn this summer? Camps build skills for life!

Great camps are nurturing environments where children feel safe and encouraged to learn new skills or practice favorite activities. Did you know that camp also teaches skills that can help children succeed in school, and later in work and life? Research by the American Camp Association and independent youth development experts shows that kids learn important life skills identified by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills and more:

  • Independence
  • Leadership
  • Friendship
  • Initiative
  • Teamwork
  • Communication
  • Collaboration
  • Respect
  • Resilience
  • Responsibility
  • Creativity
  • Cooperation
  • Social Skills
  • Unplugged Play

Choosing a summer camp or program? Ask how their program promotes life skill-building. All camps participating in the Bucks Camp Expo will gladly discuss their camp program and philosophy with families.
