Thanks to Camp
Thanks to Camp is an initiative of the Canadian Camping Association aiming to promote the positive impact camp has on the lives of millions across the country. They put together a way to show that camp is more than just fun; it actually helps children grow, and gives them all kinds of tools to succeed in life.
More Than Just Fun was launched to let families learn about the joys and benefits of camp. Research on the benefits of Camp was done and can be seen in these slides to show the practical learning that children experience at camp!
They also put together “The Camp Song” by Peter Katz, shown below, where they asked campers, parents, alumni, and staff the question “Thanks to Camp…” to see how they were affected by Camp.
