Sleepaway Camps Provide a Place for Kids to Heal, Thrive in Nature After Covid Isolation

Our children have been through a lot over the past year. The Covid-19 pandemic has stolen so much from our children and up-ended the foundations of their lives. It’s been nearly a year of “missing out.” Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, this has reportedly increased the rates of youth depression, anxiety and sadness. This summer, parents are prioritizing mental health alongside physical health for their kids — and summer camp could be key.
