Change-of-Scenery Benefits from Maine Camps
December 28, 2021, by MCE Blog Team

If you’re thinking about summer plans for your child, overnight camp in Maine is really fun and has tremendous benefits. The change of scenery can be transformative. It can help children broaden their horizons, give them a new perspective, help them have a greater appreciation of life and the world around them, and be the catalyst for motivation and growth. For kids who travel to Maine to enjoy camp each summer, there’s a great state of rejuvenation and recharging as they reset and reap the benefits of spending quality time in the “Pine Tree” state. And, for kids who reside in Maine year-round, experiencing overnight camp in Maine can also be incredibly beneficial to boost well-being and mood.

A shift from one’s ordinary surroundings to somewhere desirably different can help break the monotony and boost mental health. The change in scenery piques curiosity, creativity, and interest in new experiences. Campers may feel more relaxed, have better focus, and feel more emotionally engaged. There’s a certain rhythm and feel to Maine Camp days that provides a sense of calm while also being exciting and energizing.

With huge natural lakes, and vast fields and forests, Maine Camps provide an inviting environment that can influence mood, behavior and motivation. Being in nature can reduce anger, fear, and stress and increase pleasant feelings. Exposure to nature makes campers feel well emotionally and contributes to their physical well-being. Add incredible opportunities to learn, play, and really form deep connections while socializing with peers, and Maine Camps really provide an incredible opportunity for campers (and counselors too) to thrive. And, the benefits accrue as campers return summer after summer.

Being in nature helps campers recover from stress at home and helps lessen everyday worries. Camp in Maine is invigorating. If you haven’t enrolled your child to be a Maine camper yet, now’s the time!
