Summer Camp Can Help Shy Kids

If your child struggles with shyness, summer camp can be a great place for them to overcome their anxieties and learn new social skills. Not only is the camp environment supportive and infused with positivity, most camp directors and counselors are trained to handle shy, quiet kids and ensure their camp experience is fun and memorable.

According to Shannon Benner, general manager for Tim Horton Memorial Camp in Parry Sound, Ontario, "Camp is a group experience, not just an individual experience. Shy kids really come out of their shell and feel empowered when others are cheering for them while they are trying to climb the rock wall or doing archery."
