Camp after camp: friendship value at overnight camp

Some time after summer camp fun is done and all the best stories are recollected, your camper becomes melancholy without a reason.

overnight summer campsSound familiar? No worries, because your adventurer is actually going through camp homesickness – otherwise known as missing camp as one might miss home. Is it bad? Not really – it’s a sign that your adventurer has enjoyed camp life and had the time of their life with fellow adventurer , and after a few days of recovery will spread the benefits of camp to other aspects of their life: school, friends, and family. Positivity, willingness to explore and try new things, independence (and even the initiative to fold own clothes!) – such joy should be accepted, shared, and returned back to the adventurer for best results.

How to maintain and encourage the spirit of adventure? We heard so many times that campers meet up in Toronto right after camp and throughout the year – watch camp videos, look through photos, laugh together, and remember fond memories. Every year lots of DiscoveryLand Camp’s buddies reconnect to sign up for the same session. Camp veterans know that living in overnight summer camps and doing a lot of common activities together for 2 plus weeks allows you to form close friendships that will last for many years.

Moreover, we, DiscoveryLand Camp staff, have reunions twice after camp ends – to discuss the best moments, favorite activities, find areas for improvement for the next season… and sing favorite camp songs and just to enjoy our awesome counselors’ team.

If that sounds interesting, greatly recommend the completion of Leadership In Action – a unique course full of character building and self-improvement moments.

Program News: Kendo (Katana Bokken Practice) in DLC!

bokken kids camp torontoNew season of 2016 in DLC introduces Katana Bokken Practice!

Kendo, the “Way Of The Sword” is a traditional Japanese style of fencing, the roots of which are traced back to early Samurai time. It is practiced today as a martial art all around the world, and recently made its way to DiscoveryLand Camp’s program as well.

Kendo is a sport and art that teaches discipline and self-confidence. It combines body and mind to create a balance of physical, emotional, and metal harmony. For many practitioners, it is not only a sport, but a way of life and used to build character. The idea behind the Kendo lifestyle is to cure the practitioner of fear, confusion,bokken kids camp torontohesitation, and doubt, leaving behind a strong and healthy character.

At DiscoveryLand Camp, we are introducing Bokken, wooden Japanese swords. It is a tool for honing skills of sword and martial arts, without risk of injury from a metal blade. Bokkens are used by students of the Japanese sword arts worldwide, stemming from Japanese swordsmen for centuries prior.

After a warm-up to ensure all muscles are ready for the workout, experienced instructors will teach the campers about Kendo posture, stance, distance, and striking form.
