We know that summer camps foster relationships and help children build skills like nothing else, so why not give your child the best opportunities out there? Kwaddle is the local authority on providing FREE tips for choosing a summer camp for your child. Plus, Kwaddle has the largest database of summer camp links in the Austin area including over 500 businesses and over 3,000 camps, activities, workshops and events on Kwaddle’s Kids’ Program Calendar. This huge database is broken down into easy-to-navigate categories to help you find things like overnight summer camps, educational youth day camps, faith-based programs for kids, sports and outdoors activities, camps for kids with special needs, and many more, giving you all the information you need to find the perfect summer camp for your child.
Kwaddle isn’t just about summer camp, though. The overall goal at Kwaddle is to allow parents to easily view and register their children for high-quality enrichment activities, such as a three hour writing workshop, a weekend improv class, or a full day of soccer camp. Studies show that extra curricular activities lead to increases in self-confidence in kids, improvements in social-emotional behaviors, and better academic outcomes (source). Studies also show that only 6 out of 10 kids today are involved in extracurricular activities, which means 40% of our kids are not realizing the benefits (source). The reason many parents do not put their kids into extracurricular activities may not be what you think. Often parents struggle to find information on how to sign their children up for activities without spending hours upon hours doing research. Kwaddle wants to increase the number of kids that have access to high-quality enrichment. It has done the legwork for you, making it simple for parents to discover new enrichment for kids, while also making karate or soccer sign ups easier than ever. Kwaddle’s local programs calendar of family-friendly events is another great FREE resource for parents looking for fun things to do with their kids. Check out Kwaddle’s blog for loads of other information relating to local events and see what is out there for your son or daughter.
