The Value of Summer Camp - a Video

Most of our CIFC Friends already know the value of camp for children – it teaches them resilience, self-reliance, and self-discipline and the joy of meeting new people and discovering new cultures. But just in case some of you want to now why it is important for every child to experience camp – and why they love it – here is an excellent video by Madeline Levine, adolescent psychologist and speaker at the 2013 Western Association of Independent Camps conference that our camp directors attended. WAIC member camp staff put together this short video of a part of her keynote speech. We really liked it and thought we would share it with our friends. Please use it in any way you want to promote the value of summer camp.
