Top Life-Changing Summer Activities for Youth

Encourage your children to do something valuable on their time off with these three summer activities that encourage learning and growth.

Do your kids have something to do this summer? Do you play it by ear? Are they already all booked up? While we hate over-scheduling kids, we think it’s a good idea to have them occupied over the summer break…and that means more than just video games and Youtube surfing all day long. When your kids stream out of those school doors this June, make sure you have some kind of plan awaiting them.

What kids can do this summer:

1. Community service

Giving back to the community is a great way to learn good values and the importance of helping others. Whether it’s lending a hand at a local food shelter, donating clothes to people in need, or planting trees, community service teaches kindness, respect and empathy.

2. Summer camp

Campers are made to feel like they can do anything they set their minds to, which inspires them to step out of their comfort zone, try new things and realize their potential with the support of their peers. Camp can transform an introverted child into a thriving young adult and creates a sense of belonging through shared experiences.

Muskoka Woods, an overnight camp on beautiful Lake Rosseau, instills these principles in every aspect of its programming to deliver a life-changing experience that helps youth shape their world and future. Children depart with new skills and understandings that can have an extraordinary impact on their character, self-esteem and confidence.

3. Travel

Travelling is another activity that not only delivers a fun experience but gives youth a well-rounded sense of the world. Whether you travel one hour or 10 hours away from home, seeing new things, trying new activities, experiencing different cultures and meeting new people are all invaluable for young and old alike.
