Let’s go camping
To begin with, camping has plentiful benefits for both adults and young people. For students, time spent camping is time spent learning and growing. Moreover, everyone on the trip contributes and it’s a great chance to learn new things. It is one of the most popular community recreation settings for youth who make friends there, learn popular sports, games and develop new hobbies.
Advantages of camping–
⦁ Winter camps provide opportunities for children to grow.
⦁ They engage in social interaction with other children of similar ages and interests which is an integral part of the modern-day lifestyle.
