After talking to our amazing campers, here are our top 10 reasons why summer camps are the best way for you to spend your holidays this year.
1. No parents
It’s an absolute victory being free of parents for 1 or 2 weeks. No more having to pick up your dirty socks from the floor of your room or helping in the kitchen. You leave parents behind to enjoy the independence and freedom of camp. However, while you are buzzing to be away from them, you notice that your parents are posting selfies of their holiday in Barbados. Gutted!
2. Seeing new places
Everybody loves the excursions during a summer camp. Combining the joy of being dragged up Edinburgh’s little mountain, the absolute cultural highlight of a church visit and the unbeatable taste of a packed lunch with an apple, a cereal bar and two soggy sandwiches. However, once the official part of the excursion is over, it just couldn’t get better – free time. Ditch the sandwiches, head to McDonald’s and shop with your new best friends in shops that don’t exist in your country. You can also stock up on sweets for the rest of camp and have a competition to see who can photobomb the most Japanese tourists!
