Camp is Not Just Great for Campers but for Parents too.

In this TACEO blog, we have talked about the numerous benefits of JORI for your kids, such as a great way to experience new activities, explore their connection to Judaism, and meet new friends. However, did you know that parents also benefit from sending their kids to camp? 

Here are some of the ways we take care of you, parents:

Peace of Mind

One of the primary benefits for parents of sending their children to summer camp is the peace of mind that comes with knowing their child is in a safe and supportive environment. Summer camps provide a structured and supervised setting where children can engage in a range of activities, from sports and arts to outdoor adventures and team-building exercises, under the watchful eye of trained staff. Knowing that their child is being well-cared for and is having a positive experience can be a huge relief for parents.

At JORI, all of our staff go through a comprehensive training program. In addition, many of our senior staff members are professional teachers and social workers. This attention to staff development ensures that you can enjoy yourselves while your kids are having fun.

Time for Self-Care

Summer camp can also provide parents with a much-needed break and a chance to focus on their own self-care. While their children are away, parents can take the opportunity to rest, recharge, and engage in activities that they enjoy. This can be especially important for parents who work full-time or who have other caregiving responsibilities, as it allows them to take a break from their daily routine and prioritize their own needs.

Strengthened Family Relationships

Sending children to summer camp can also strengthen family relationships. When children return home from camp, they often have new stories to share, new skills to demonstrate, and new friendships to introduce. Parents can use these experiences as a way to connect with their children and build stronger bonds. Additionally, the independence and self-confidence that children gain from camp can make them better equipped to handle challenges at home and communicate more effectively with their parents.

Exposure to New Ideas and Perspectives

Summer camps can expose children to new ideas and perspectives that they may not encounter in their daily lives. Camps often have a diverse range of campers and staff from different backgrounds and cultures, which can provide children with an opportunity to learn about and appreciate diversity. This exposure can also be beneficial for parents, who may learn from their children’s experiences and gain new insights and perspectives.

Increased Sense of Community

Finally, sending children to summer camp can increase a parent’s sense of community. Camps often have a strong sense of community, with parents, staff, and campers all working together to create a positive and supportive environment. Parents can feel connected to this community through their children’s experiences and may also have opportunities to get involved with the camp themselves, such as through volunteering, attending family events, or joining our alumni network.

Remember, JORI is not just a fun and valuable experience for children but can also provide numerous benefits for parents. From the peace of mind that comes with knowing their child is in a safe and supportive environment to the opportunity to focus on their own self-care and strengthen family relationships.
