Wallace Comments in Washington Post on Tweens, Teens and Summer Camps

Stephen commented recently on the value of the summer camp experience for tweens and teens for a special supplement of the Washington Post:  “Camp is tremendously helpful for kids,” says Stephen Wallace, a director of Cape Cod Sea Camps, school psychologist, and author of Reality Gap:  Alcohol Drugs, and Sex – What Parents Don’t Know and Teens Aren’t Telling.  He says going to camp – especially overnight camp- helps kids accomplish three primary tasks of adolescence:  getting an identity, gaining independence, and making and keeping friends.”  Read more from Stephen about the outcomes of the summer camp experience in his Camping Magazine feature article, Rites of Passage – Camp Pays Off in Youth Development, Happiness, Health, and Safety.
