Activities

WOODSHOP

At Camp Hughes’ wood shop sessions, campers develop basic woodworking skills and learn how to use different tools. However, some of the most substantial learning that occurs is related to the development of character.

Working with just the basic tools and the desire to make things is so general in children that they are willing to go through many challenges to reach their objectives.

In Camp Hughes’ wood shop, campers will:

  • Practice perseverance and focus
  • Develop fine and gross motor skills
  • Develop hand-eye coordination
  • Grow socially and emotionally through self-confidence, responsibility, appreciation for self and others
  • Practice sharing and teamwork
  • Applying math skills to real world context with creativity and innovative solutions
  • Strengthen self-esteem, so that campers, go from an “I can’t do it YET” mindset to an “I can do it!” growth mindset
  • Develop mental and intellectual strength required to problem solve and learn from mistakes
  • Accept individual responsibility for our safety and the safety of those around us

WHY ARE SUMMER CAMPS MORE BENEFICIAL THAN EVER?

With the growing popularity of technology and screen games, kids are less likely to participate in sports. As a result, screens have replaced physical activity in more households than ever before. How do we to change this? Through organized sports for our campers.

Youth sports, have been proven to increase confidence, self-esteem, and competence. Sports can also encourage social and interpersonal skills, such as leadership and teamwork. Campers can learn and build on life skills through sports, including time management, work ethics, and goal setting. These skills have been proven to boost school attendance, concentration, memory, and academic performance.

FAMILY DAY

The best way to finish off our camps are with a family day! During this special day all of our campers and parents get together to share their experiences, play games, enjoy a BBQ and make new friends.
