When can a children’s summer camp not be suitable for a child?

Situations, problems, diseases, solvable and unsolvable problems

However, in our daily lives, our children need parental care and guidance. However, there is a certain point in time when the parent needs to release them freely on their path, or this is the moment when they begin to grow up and  want to be alone.  These are time consuming skills, but children definitely need them and their learning.

 

 

Here is how the camp has a positive impact on children: it  maintains social skills, gives and models habits for healthy lifestyles, facilitates children’s summer mode by offering them a variety of activities and fun in a  healthy rhythm of life , enhances self-esteem helping them deal with daily routine problems on their own, helping children find and make friends, returning children back to nature, encouraging teamwork , encouraging their overall personal growth.

 

Of course, the camp has many other benefits: it can become an annual tradition with the same children. When children embark on this exciting journey away from home, they will inevitably make friendships that could potentially last a lifetime.

 

Often parents hear about children who return at the same time to the summer camp  and again with the same children, often forming lifelong friendships. This can be a great way to  broaden the child’s social circle, have friends outside of school or organized after school activities that can meet him much more and different people, ultimately enriching his life.

 

Camp is a stressful experience

 

 

There is also one special aspect of a children’s camp: some children may find it a very stressful experience.

Not all children will enjoy being away from home and may think staying outside is stressful and difficult. Children who suffer from social anxiety  can do better in a day camp, where they only stay for a few hours a day, or be accompanied by their loved ones at our  Lucky Kidds camp.

 

It is important for the parent and child to check what type of camp  you plan to send them to, and to be absolutely honest with  the guide for their concerns , if any. If the child is unlikely to enjoy their stay and resists from the start, it doesn’t make much sense to send and spend extra money on this kind of stressful experience.

 

 

Situations, problems, illnesses

 

There are other types of events that happen regardless of our desire for the child to be  happy, happy, satisfied.

 

 

Every parent strives for the best of their child. In the same way, all our teachers and animators are trained to provide the best professional care. It includes not only  the physical safety  and well-being of our pets, but also their  emotional satisfaction  and motivation to participate, their calm, joyful and learning everyday life. However, there is sometimes a situation in which the child is dissatisfied and unwilling to participate or cope with the challenges.

 

Example: Sometimes children get into disputes, quarrels or just engage in physical abuse. In those moments, when they are independent and  without the constant presence of the parent, they are particularly  vulnerable.  In these cases, our executives intervene skillfully and resolve the situation according to the Lucky Kidds Regulations by taking immediate action with aim to make children feel safe and secure.

 

In cases of  verbal harassment  (which are very rare in our camp), children may feel very hurt and may not want assistance or intervention, even trying to cover up the case. In such situations, the professional experience of  our teachers and animators  to respond adequately and to provide sufficient  observation is of great importance. These cases almost never remain hidden. Thanks to the experience of  camp management, even the most complex cases are effectively resolved.

 

There may be a problem with the child’s adaptation to the camp

 

It happens to our small participants as well as the larger teenagers. It can be masked as a complaint from a  series of maladies  or even lead to a real illness.

 

Sometimes it makes it impossible to stop the disease, since it is  psychosomatics.  In such extreme cases, the camp leader contacts the parents and after all other methods have been tried and failed, together they decide to return the child. at home.

 

Such occasions are extremely rare, as LuckKids is a balanced mix of fun, fun and educational situations that does not leave children bored, happening in a wonderful five star hotel and amongst  friendly staff and friends.

 

Diseases can be a serious obstacle to staying children in camp

Depending on the severity of the illness, parents and camp management decide whether to allow him or her to be treated by the camp doctor or sent home.

There are cases of gastric malaise, which passes quickly after a  light diet and herbal tea.  There are also those with severe disorder and dehydration that require home or even  hospital treatment.

 

In cases of injury, parents and management decide, upon the recommendation of the doctor, whether to take the child for  home treatment  or to leave him / her in the camp / in the case of minor injuries /.

The hotel and all activities at Lucky Kids Kids Summer Camp  have a high level of safety. We take care to prevent accidents from happening. An important part of our preventative activity is the briefings and safety rules  that we present prior to that activity.

 

We give the rule, but also explain why this rule is good for them, how it protects them, and what is the point of following them. That is to say, our prevention is not only limited to  giving ready rules, it also includes explanations for why they are made a requirement. Many children follow the rules easily and effectively if they understand them.

 

The unsolvable problems

 

In our adult lives, we are often accustomed to reading popular science reads that anything in our lives is possible and we find unsolvable problems. In the small protected reality of our children  this is not the case. Especially at a tender age, it is important for them to learn how to address the problem and how to look for a solution. Much also depends on the family environment and upbringing.

 

We at Lucky Kidds can only be the child’s navigators. The foundations are laid elsewhere. If the child and  camp professionals do not receive the support, understanding, and cooperation of the parent, then the child is highly likely to be disappointed and unable to emerge from the so-called. A “problem” that can very often be easily overcome by following the  right advice and example.

 

Moral-value problems

 

With us, at Lucky Kidd, so-called moral-value problems sometimes occur. With a unstable or missing value system in the child / difficult distinction between good and bad, lack of set boundaries, an example of inappropriate behavior that the child has copied / as much as we fight for tolerance, honesty, openness, mutual assistance, this may not work.

 

In our daily lives as educators and professionals, we never give up on this battle. We always give our graduates the best of themselves, we show them when they have done well and when they can correct their behavior, we give them a chance to act according to our golden rules. Perhaps this is one of  the most important experiences for them in the camp. They become part of a highly moral and successful community. This invariably brings to light the best in them or gives them an orientation as to what is important and right for them.

In our history as an international camp, we have had minimal cases where we did not get the exact result. We can say that even with them, the influence of our widely practiced Virtue system has produced results, albeit at a later stage.

 

In general, as professionals, there are no insoluble problems. All cases are challenges, of course, but a child can be convinced, motivated, taught to self  and assert himself / herself as a person, trained to solve, accept, and  overcome challenges.

 

It is important for both parents and educators at the camp to keep reminding themselves that children are here to rest and shut down their current reality, recharge their batteries, and be ready for the next new phase of their lives.
