Why is camp safer than home?

With so much focus upon COVID-19, it is easy to lose sight of what we know is the most basic and important fact about summer camp – that it is, and that IT WILL CONTINUE TO REMAIN the safest place for children. Pandemics, injuries, mental health – it doesn’t matter, kids are safer in a camp environment than at home. And when we tack on the social, developmental, and the simple need for kids to play outside, there can be no doubt that they are far better served at camp than at home where they often spend their days and nights watching television, playing video games, gossiping on social media, or roaming the neighborhood looking for something to do, generally unsupervised and quite bored.
