Help Your Child Become Confident, Independent and Adventurous – Send Them To WeHaKee!
Camp WeHaKee is known far and wide as a place where girls and young women grow in remarkable and positive ways. Parents repeatedly share that after just two weeks as WeHaKee, their child returned home with more confidence, greater independence and an energized sense of adventure… not to mention a whole lot of new friends from around the country and the world! Participating in an overnight camp at Camp WeHaKee consistently & significantly contributes to the development of independence, confidence, and adventurous spirit. For example, here are several ways in which our overnight camp experience fosters these qualities:
- Decision Making: Campers often have to make choices about their daily activities, meals, and interactions with peers. This encourages them to think independently and make decisions on their own.
- Problem-Solving: Negotiating challenges, whether in group activities or personal tasks, helps build problem-solving skills. Overcoming obstacles without immediate parental guidance boosts self-confidence.
- Social Skills:
- Building Friendships: Being away from home allows your daughter to form new friendships and navigate social dynamics independently. This fosters communication, empathy, and cooperation.
- Teamwork: Many WeHaKee activities involve collaboration. Learning to work effectively in a group setting promotes a sense of belonging and shared responsibility.
- Facing Challenges: Camp experiences at WeHaKee frequently involve outdoor activities, physical challenges, and exposure to new environments. Overcoming these challenges builds resilience and a sense of accomplishment.
- Dealing with Homesickness: Being away from home teaches children to manage homesickness. When they are able to overcome those feelings, not only does the experience provide them with new-found coping skills that are valuable throughout life, but also leaves them with a deep sense of accomplishment.
- Confidence Building:
- Skill Development: Learning new skills, whether in sports, arts, or other activities, boosts confidence. Success in these areas contributes to a positive self-image.
- Public Speaking: WeHaKee often includes supported opportunities for campers to speak in front of others, whether during group activities or performances. This helps build confidence in expressing oneself.
- Adventurous Spirit:
- Trying New Activities: WeHaKee offers nearly 40 activities, many that campers may not have the chance to experience at home. Trying new things fosters a sense of adventure and curiosity.
- Nature Exploration: WeHaKee is situated in remarkably beautiful and natural setting, providing ample opportunities for outdoor exploration. Appreciating and respecting nature instills an adventurous and environmentally conscious mindset.
- Camp Chores and Responsibilities: WeHaKee helps campers learn to take responsibility for cleaning their personal space, working together to clean their cabin and chances to help beautify the camp community, fostering a sense of responsibility for personal space and communal areas.
- Caring for Personal Belongings: Being responsible for personal belongings and managing daily routines contributes to a sense of independence.
- Time Management:
- Structured Schedule: WeHaKee provides set schedule for activities, meals, and rest. Adhering to this schedule helps children develop time-management skills. But there is also time for free play and relaxation as well!
- Cultural and Diversity Exposure:
- Meeting People from Different Backgrounds: Interacting with campers and staff from diverse backgrounds at WeHaKee will broaden your child’s perspective and promotes cultural understanding and empathy.
Ultimately, it is about finding a great fit for your child – to find a place where they will be welcomed and instantly feel a sense of belonging. WeHaKee is committed to intentionally connecting with each and every camper to help them discover their personal sense of belonging in a supportive, nurturing and fun camp community.
