When your child suffers with low self esteem, it can be difficult to know what you can do as a parent to help remedy the situation. If school sports, pep talks and other strategies don't work, sending your child to a camp specifically geared toward creating and building self esteem could be the answer. Self esteem camps for kids teach children new abilities, the importance of teamwork and gives your child a change to learn on his own.

Sunshine Kids Club Camp

Sunshine Kids Club Camp, located in Skyesville, Maryland, offers yearly sessions, as well as before and after school programs. The camp's goals are to offer children a safe learning and recreational environment, while enhancing their self esteem through play and activities like swimming, rock climbing and dance. The Sunshine Kids Club Camp focuses on your child's abilities instead of those things she can't so, which in turn builds confidence and self esteem through capability, while still setting achievable goals to enhance your child's experience.

Camp High Rocks

A camp geared toward boys only, Camp High Rocks takes offers outdoor activities that engage your son, without the hindrance of competitive activity. In a less-competitive environment, your son gains self esteem and makes new friends who are committed to his success. Camp High Rocks is found on a 1,000 acre facility in North Carolina, so there's plenty of room to play, learn and earn confidence through new experiences, a mission for the camp. Camp High Rocks offers a variety of sessions and camp lengths so you can choose the one best for your son.

The Learning Camp

Designed to improve the self esteem and confidence of children with attention deficit disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, The Learning Camp was started by a mother of a child who suffered from ADHD and dyslexia. Counselors know how to interact with children who have learning disabilities, and children find out that there are others just like them. While at the pristine grounds in Vail Valley, Colorado, children with learning disabilities gain the confidence found through the social experiences they may not have had at home. A program that focuses on ability over disability builds self esteem and social skills.

Camp Xtreme

Geared toward children with physical disabilities, Camp Xtreme plans exciting activities no matter what the level of ability. Instead of allowing a disabled child to opt out of participation, Camp Xtreme chooses exciting activities, including white water rafting, SCUBA diving, basketball and a variety of other experiences for kids who may have not had the chance to participate in other circumstances. Found in Houston, Camp Xtreme encourages participants in wheelchairs and with other physical disabilities to try new things and learn new skills to increase self esteem and confidence throughout the summer.
