When you attend a camp at a Pennsylvania Christian Retreat Center or send your children to a camp at a Christian Conference Center, you empower them with lifelong skills. Attending camp is so much more than just having a good time. Camps instill many life-long values that will help your camper grow and thrive.
Working with People You Dislike
Working with people you don’t like, or people that annoy you, or people you can’t get along with is part of life. Camp exposes you to this reality and teaches you how to handle complex relationships from a pretty young age. The lessons of working with people you dislike will translate into your professional life because you will be armed with the skills to put your feelings aside and get the job done.
Communication is vital in virtually every camp activity from chores, to making sure your team performs well in the talent show and speaking up about an uncomfortable living situation. Camp teaches us almost immediately that without accurate and effective communication, teamwork can’t work.
Trusting Your Learning Capacity
Everyday life at camp becomes a learning experience, from learning how to tie knots and start fires to learning more complex things like conflict resolution and how to cohabitate with your friends. They have in common that you often find yourself surprised at how much and how quickly you can learn new skills. As you go through life, you understand that you never know when knowing how to do something is going to come in handy, and the skills learned at camp and the confidence in yourself to learn new things will work in your favor.
In life and camp, you must arm yourself with the knowledge, resources, and support you need to be successful. Eventually, you find out that the teams who plan generally see the best results. Suddenly, you realize the value being of being prepared. Preparation is a skill that can make all the difference between passing and failing a course, nail-ing or failing a job interview, and being successful in every aspect of your life, from work to personal relationships to family.
Leaving your Comfort Zone
From going mom and dad to conquering your fear of heights and trying so many new things, camp pushes you out of your comfort zone. This breeds bold and brave adults who aren’t afraid to try new things in life and business. These new things can lead to unexpected relationships and business inventions, innovations that can make you millions of dollars or help you find the love of your life. Camp at a Christian Retreat Center plays a huge role in preparing us for life. Camp affords you the chance to learn about who you are, what you can do, and how you will fit into the world.
