MomsEveryday

Summer camp is the perfect opportunity to get your kids to unplug and take advantage of the great outdoors.

Kids today are constantly plugged in. Whether they're messaging their friends, snapping a picture or playing video games, the opportunity to step away from technology is waning.

Summer camp offers kids and teens the chance to get back to nature and realize they don't need technology all the time. Camp Director Sayer Jackson says it's an appealing reason to send your kids to camp.

"Camp is an awesome way to unplug, get outside, get active, get into nature," Jackson said.

Other benefits include making friends, getting out of your comfort zone, experiencing new adventures and building independence.
