Brookline, MA (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
Summer is a time for high school students to challenge themselves and their values, master new skills, gain a broader global perspective, volunteer, earn money, and prepare for college and the workplace. TeenLife.com, an online resource for parents, students, and educators presents the countless benefits of heading to a day or overnight summer program or camp. To design a fulfilling summer, students and parents should actively work together to define a primary goal for the two-month break.
“With a little advanced planning and ‘encouragement’ from parents or teachers, students can fit in an interesting summer program along with a job or other activities,” said Marie Schwartz, President and Founder of TeenLife Media, LLC.
As for college, meaningful summer experiences can add significance to college applications. On both common and universal college applications, students are asked to list summer schools and programs attended. Most colleges will also allow room for more elaboration on these camp and summer program experiences.
Personally, the right summer program can help students become more open minded, pursue a passion or explore new interests, develop interpersonal and problem-solving skills, gain independence, and increase self-confidence and self-esteem. Not to mention - add fun away from home during summer break; it's a time to replenish and re-energize before middle or high school starts again.
Parents and teenagers can search the TeenLife.com site to find thousands of both day and overnight summer programs that are best suited to students' interests.
Types of summer programs include academic enrichment, community service, leadership programs, adventure trips, language immersion, specialty programs, and traditional camps.
