Camp can offer a child more than mere fun. Camp is also the ideal environment to help campers develop their problem-solving skills.
Children learn problem solving through trial-and-error and modeling (watching how adults solve problems). Camp, with its community living focus, presents a constant source of potential conflicts and, thus, incidents in which to practice problem-solving skills. Camp also offers endless observation of how others (especially counselors) solve daily problems.
