A summer camp gives children a place to go during the summers. Its convenient for parents because it allows them time and space to do errands or do other things that they couldn't do without carting around their kids. It's a benefit for kids because it allows them to make new friends in a friendly environment. It's also a benefit for both sides if the summer camp is a sleepover camp, because it then allows not only the parents but the kids with time away from one another. it also gives them the opportunity to have fun without worrying about the other persons.
