Summer camp is first and foremost an amazing opportunity for your child to gain confidence and to forge lifelong friendships with other campers. But there are also many other fantastic benefits based on what kind of camp your child is interested in attending. No matter what kind of summer camp your child chooses, they’re sure to have plenty of fun throughout the whole experience.
Did you know that many Hollywood stars from today and yesterday also attended performance-based camp when they were young? If your child is an aspiring star, or one who shows plenty of personality around the house, then summer camp might be a fun and unique way to give them an even bigger stage to shine on. Here’s everything you need to know to find the right camp for your budding superstar camper.
Many parents make the mistake of assuming that acting camp is the only option for children who want to attend a performance based camp. Before you and your child make the big decision about where to go, talk about exactly what they would like to be doing while away.
Pali Adventures offers not only acting specialties, but other performance-based camps including film, rockstar, movie makeup, and Hollywood stunt camps. Let your child choose what kind of Hollywood adventure they would like to have when it’s time to sign up for camp, and they’re guaranteed to get the most from the experience.
The arts have received decreased funding in schools and afterschool programs as STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) programs have become more widespread in recent years. But that doesn’t mean that the arts are becoming less important. In fact, research has shown that arts education can improve test scores, and business leaders actually consider creativity one of the most important factors when hiring.
For these reasons, summer camp is becoming more and more intrinsic in cultivating an arts education for kids who might not receive that exposure during the school year. At many performance-based camps, your child will have the opportunity to hone their acting skills and will enjoy performing with other like-minded kids.
The most important thing is that your child has fun, so be sure to choose a summer camp where your child will have a blast above all else. At Pali, our performance-based specialties will cultivate and provide an outlet for your child’s passions, while ensuring they spend plenty of time getting to be a kid.
