When it comes to trends in summer camps, science is the second hottest thing after rising temperatures. But why are science summer camps becoming the go-to destination for kids and teens?

Science camps are great for a variety of ages, and they help to foster the interests and skills that help young people in the world of today. We'll give you the top 5 reasons why science summer camps are the best.

1. Science camps are fun.

Let's cut to the chase. Kids and teens aren't going to want to go to a summer camp unless it fills this most important of priorities.

And science camps are very fun. Science, as a topic, spans a number of different areas of interest, and there are so many activities for each field of study.

 Far from a classroom, kayaking is a great way to get out and learn about the environment and specific ecosystems. Building and programming robots are activities that bring about the joys of playing with toys. And astronomy builds on the sense of wonder that everyone has as a young person.

2. Science summer camps promote learning.

Not everyone learns from reading books and listening to lectures. Many people are kinesthetic learners - or the type of people that learn from having a hands-on experience.

Science camps cater to these types of learners. For example, kids and teens can engineer a self-driving robot and even create worlds within a video game.

By putting science into your hands in the real world, science camps promote a tactile and memorable way to learn.

3. Science camps promote socialization.

There has long been a stigma that kids and teens who are into science and math are introverted or anti-social. Science summer camps dispel that stereotype.

Sleepaway camps naturally put students together in close proximity and teach them to live and grow together. And science, specifically, gives students exciting group activities and experiments to partake in, so they can work together.

Also, science camps encourage girls and young women get into science and math, fields they have traditionally been left out of.

4. STEM jobs are the future.

Fun and games are great, but science camps also prepare your kids for the world beyond the learning environment. Getting your child interested in STEM is an investment in their future.

More and more jobs relate to science, robotics, coding, and other STEM fields. Even a basic understanding of science and math helps future jobseekers when they go into other fields.

5. Science helps kids and teens understand a world bigger than themselves.

Science, in general, encourages people to look beyond themselves to the world around them. At camp, kids can learn about ecosystems and other forms of living creatures that depend on one another to survive.

Kids and teens can learn how to take care of the environment and the world around them. Some camps have activities learning about animals or space.

The exact area of focus depends on the camp, but the study of science extends beyond a single person. Thinking beyond oneself makes your child happier, more positive, and more empathetic for the world around them. That's why science is great.
