Going to a summer snowboard camp isn’t just a place to progress your skills while everyone else is working their Xbox controller, or getting a chance to meet your favorite pro shred, it’s a good way for your parents to not have to deal with you moping around the house all summer. Here are some reasons to remember next time you start begging your parents for a trip to summer snowboard camp.
Ever think that your parents need a break too, from you? They are stoked when school starts so you have something to do that gets you out of their hair for 8-9 hours a day. Then, when summer vacation starts they have to be around you non-stop and deal with your summer boredom. Well, if they sent you to camp they’d be getting a vacation, too. Double deal.
They say that almost 17% of children are obese these days, and summer vacation can be the time to either put on a few pounds, or stay active and keep off that extra weight. In addition to snowboarding, summer camps offer all kinds of other activities like skateboarding, mountain biking, trampolines, and dodge ball(!). Tell your parents, “if you want me to be healthy, you’ll send me to camp this summer.”
