Why you should have more Father-child bonding?

One of life’s biggest challenges that almost every father faces is, Bonding with their children and getting closer to them like they are with their mothers. Mostly, kids nowadays, develop a much closer relationship with their moms than their dads, and this happens due to a lot of conditions and obstacles, including work load, lack of communication, lack of know-how…etc.

Well, it’s not easy neither on moms nor on dads, but, there is always a chance to make it better, to build that bond you always think of! Once kids turn 6 or 7 they start thinking about the “What-ifs” a lot! “What is I could spend some more time with my dad?”, “What if I went and talked with my dad with an open-heart, would he listen”, that’s the main problem! You love them a lot and they cherish you and your presence in their lives, but you rarely find a mid-point that you can catch up with them at.

Attending a Father and Child camp is like having a one-day getaway with your child, away from the stress of work, their moms, their mobile phones and tablets, it’s a one day that is all about you and them where you get a chance to pour your heart out t them with how much they mean the world t you and listen closely to what they want and need to tell you. It is the time where you get a best friend out of your child!

Schools are back, but we’re here all year long!

It’s the end of a very successful summer season at WellSpring and we’re super excited to start the new one with a lot of new projects with Schools and organizations! 


Let us give you a heads up on the previous projects we worked on with our partners, varying from Schools to big corporations and residential compounds around Egypt as well. So, starting with Schools, last Fall we;ve hosted several successful Family Day Camps at the schools’ premises where students and their families come to join us for a day full of bonding fun activities that get them to make some good memories and share unforgettable bonding laughs. 


Not only do we host family camps for schools’ students and their parents, but we also focus on creating a memorable overnight camp experience for the students throughout the school year. We take students on a 3 nights overnight camp where they get to play, learn new values, experience the adrenaline rush of climbing the low ropes, and bond together in a happy fun atmosphere during the campfire while roasting some good-tasting marshmallows! 


Whereas for corporate organizations, we’ve hosted Family Day Camps too where employees get their spouses and kids to spend a day with their colleagues, play together, and bond in different ways too. This brings the employees a chance to not only create a bond with their family members, but also get to know their colleagues and their families better, resulting in creating a family-like work environment and thus improves the employees’ productivity when they get back to work! 


One of the projects we very much love was the Mother and Child Camp we cooperated with the National Bank of Egypt in hosting last March to celebrate some of the “Mom employees” in the bank! Hosting around 60 moms from one organization in an overnight mother and child overnight camp gave us an enormous feeling of happiness and pride! 


We can’t wait to partner up with more schools and organizations in the new season to create an impact with more students and families! 


As for the students, our precious campers, we can’t wait to have you all again in our upcoming Autumn and Christmas Day Camps and Overnight Camps too! Different topics covered in every camp, exciting activities and highlighting games too. Campers also get to make new friends throughout the camp which is a great add-on to every camper who attends. 


“My daughter’s friend got sick and canceled last minute before the camp, and my daughter didn’t want to come at first but when she attended, she got to make new friends and came for 2 more weeks after that!” - Said one of the campers’ moms attending our Summer Day Camps.



Does your kid suffer from Bullying at school?

Bullying, a word we got used to hearing for the past year a lot, and unfortunately, we got used to being sarcastic about it, while the truth here is, it’s one of the biggest challenges our kids face in their schools, in their sports training, with their friends, sometimes even from their families!

Well, we believe that bullying is a serious matter that may affect the psychological health of the kid till old ages, and that’s why it should be taken seriously! It’s definitely not a joke to point a finger at someone and come up with something to make people laugh at!

Kids, especially in the age starting 4 years old and up to 12 years old need to be taught more about respect, boundaries, and how to have limits with the words they use with their friends and people around them! It's important to teach them how their words may affect someone badly, and also how their words may help someone or make them smile:) 

Most of the parents out there look for smart ways to apply ethical values with their kids, but that’s where most of them face the problem of “Why does it have to be me?”. Kids almost hate the rules their parents apply because they think those rules are applied only to them, that’s why it’s important to continuously enroll your kids during in WellSpring Camps where they actually learn something useful and also have fun! 

WellSpring Camps are hosted to focus on helping kids face those challenges in a healthy manner by: 

  • Giving them the chance to be put in groups with kids of the same age.
  • Teaching them the right values of honesty, integrity, and the importance of having boundaries.
  • Providing them with the opportunity of spending a fun vacation yet a useful one.

We always guarantee your kid's well being and an unforgettable experience!

Would sending your child to a camp change their life? Check this!

If you’re reading this, it definitely means that you’re thinking about sending your child to an overnight camp. We know and understand that you indeed have concerns about that, or you may question if it’s the right thing to do for them. Would they handle being away from home for a few days? What would it be like for them not to have their mobile phones on them for the whole camp? And you’re definitely wondering how much you’re going to miss them! Well, we’re here to answer those questions and highlight how life-changing it is to send your child on a WellSpring Overnight Camp


Let’s start with a similar situation: you send your kids to school to learn something new, get a certificate, make new friends, get exposed to new experiences, and develop their characters in a safe environment. Well, sending them to a WellSpring Overnight Camp is similar but more! Our WellSpring camps are eligible for kids starting at age 8 years old, and it helps them: 

  • Be Independent; even the most dependent children learn to rely on themselves by spending some time away from their parents.
  • Love working/ playing in a team; the camp provides a community for your child to join. For example, campers learn to work together in keeping their cabins clean, work together to win a camp-wide competition, or work to help one another learn new skills.
  • Self-reflect; may seem like a grown-up thing, but the truth is without electronic toys, your child will learn to slow down and appreciate other worthy experiences.
  • Appreciate the Small Things; Spending some time away from home help the kids appreciate what they know as the “Normal” in their lives. For example, they get to appreciate all that home offers — a warm bed, a refrigerator full of snacks, a bathroom of their own, a television, etc.
  • Learn New Skills; the experience helps the kids find a hobby or a passion they otherwise may never have known about. 
  • Make new friends; a good camp program will make it easy for kids to find friends fast, and WellSpring is the expert in that! 
  • Learn to make choices, not critical ones, but for their age, picking the top or lower bunk is a choice, and deciding their sports major in the camp is a choice. That’s the perfect practice for the teen years ahead, which would be offering responsible decision-making opportunities every day.
  • Appreciate their parents; a child who spends some time away at the overnight camp learns to appreciate all his parents do for them. The little extras, such as making their favorite dishes, or driving them to and from sports practice, may suddenly be appreciated.


To sum it up, it may seem like a few-days experience when you look at it from a far perspective, but thinking of how beneficial and life-changing it may be to your kids would definitely change how you feel about it and help you get answers to all your questions! Take the upcoming chance and send your kid on one of WellSpring’s Winter Overnight Camps taking place next month!
