CHESTERCOUNTY-LIFE.COM MarchApril 2016 119 a surge in specialized camps and school-based camps. Several fac- tors are driving this trend. Applying to colleges and entering the job market become more global and intensively competitive each pass- ing day. Preparation for college and competing in a global economy begins at an early age and is now nearly a year-round effort for developing the level of skills and talents necessary to compete in a global society. Another factor or reason Education of the whole child has pretty much become the standard. The concept of the whole child is holistic recognizing that children develop physically socially intellectually emotionally and spiritually and such com- prehensive and complete development is complemented and supple- mented through the many wonderful summer camps available for parents and their children. TYPES OF SUMMER CAMPS There are three main camp categories specialized camps school- based camps and traditional camps. Traditional summer camps are mainly a form of vacation over many weeks or nearly the entire summer where children meet new friends and enjoy a wide range of adventures and recreational activ- ities. While recreation and activities may develop new skills the es- sential objectives of traditional camps are having fun experiencing adventure and breaking away from the rigors of school structure and schedules. In contrast to traditional summer camps specialized camps concentrate on very specific areas of interest and these camps are intended to develop specific skill sets. One specialized category is adventure camps. Types of adventure camps include scouting wil- derness exploration marine biology sailing backpacking caving rock climbing fishing canoeing scuba diving international travel etc. Another specialized category is art camps. Types of art camps Combines a multi-sensory project-based learning approach with the excitement of traditional summer recreational fun.

We pride ourselves on developing innovative programming year after year and believe the expansion of our Sports and Technology camps in 2015 illustrates our commitment. This expansion promotes our efforts to ensure Friends campers feel successful and included. Technology campsare a hallmark of our program. Across our lower school and middle school campuses we provide campers with tools and opportunities to tap into their innovative side by offering Scratch animation LEGO and STEM. To build upon this already impressive resume we are excited to offer 3D printing woodturning and drone camps in 2016. Housed in our new state-of-the-art Design labs these camps will be the perfect setting for young engineers to dabble in new technologies. Sports camps have always been very popular at Friends. Spiking volleyballs and learning proper lacrosse passing techniques are just a few examples of how our programs help to develop competitive athletes while always adhering to our commitment of nurturing good sportsmanship. This year we will keep this tradition alive by offering both British soccer and Brazilian Futsal soccer camps. In addition middle school football camps will be returning to Friends with a coaching staff led by Rob Tattersall.
