With summer just around the corner, kids are excited for the upcoming break. And with the same anticipation, if not anxiety, their parents are seeking ways to keep the youngsters engaged and entertained.

At Darlene’s Wee Care 4 Kids, we provide top-tier summer camp programs and activities for children in the Upper Darby, Pennsylvania area. In this article, we’ll give you some information on what we have to offer. To learn more about how we can make every day of your kid’s summer a sunny, fun experience, please visit our website or give us a call today!

Education Retention

The summer is designed to give developing minds a break from the intellectual rigor of school, but that can come at a cost. Studies show that during the summer break, students can lose or become less competent with much of the knowledge they acquired in the previous school year.

At our summer camp program, we provide stimulating activities and academic support to minimize this effect and to keep kids engaged. To refine their literacy skills, we have daily designated story time or reading time. If your kiddo has a musical spirit, we can accommodate that too — we often play music, and sometimes even make it ourselves with experimental “jam” sessions!

Kids with an interest in science and nature will be pleased to learn about wildlife and biology, just as math-savvy students will be challenged with a variety of numerical puzzles and logic games. There is no shortage of ways to stay academically engaged during the summer when you enroll your child or children in a program from Darlene’s Wee Care 4 Kids.

Health & Exercise

When the weather is beautiful in Pennsylvania, it’s a shame not to take full advantage of it, which is why we always incorporate outdoor activities and physical education into our summer programs for kids. 

Kids will enjoy entertaining, health-boosting activities like soccer, tag, baseball, kickball, and many other sports. We also provide free play periods where children can move in the ways they enjoy most, whether it’s dancing, swinging, climbing on the jungle gym, or running around in the fresh air.

On top of this, we give kids nutritious meals and snacks to keep their energy stable and their tummies satisfied. After all, you can’t have fun if you don’t fuel your body right!

Adventures in New Places

Although we have enough to stay busy and engaged at Darlene’s alone, we think it’s a lot more fun to switch up the surroundings as frequently as possible!

At our children’s summer camp, we often take field trips to new and exciting places, making every day a brand new adventure for participants. Some of our favorite locations to visit include amusement parks, movie theaters, trampoline parks, swimming pools, and natural hiking trails. We also find ways to incorporate arts, crafts, and other creative elements into our field trips and cooperative activities. 

Conclusion

Choosing the right summer program for your child is of the utmost importance to ensure that they retain education, maintain physical wellness, and receive adequate amusement and entertainment. In short, a summer program can enrich your child’s time away from school — and give you the opportunity to do what lets you live your most balanced life.
