Summer camps for youths offer the best experiences. Combine making friends, learning a language and enjoying varied activities and you have a recipe for fun that will have your kids returning for more. And the benefits speak for themselves.
Research has shown that the younger kids are when they’re exposed to different languages, the better they will perform on tasks that require attention, inhibition and short-term memory.
Not only are there academic benefits, there are also health benefits too. Studies have shown that socially active teens are healthier than their less social peers, with lower weight, blood pressure and stress hormone levels.
It was also found that the friendships that we make in our teen years are just as essential for our well-being as the social connections we make later in life. We spoke to our passionate Berlitz team to further explore some of the benefits offered by our summer camps.
