My granddaughter’s birthday was coming up and I wasn’t sure what to get her. After some thought I asked her mom if my granddaughter would like to enroll in a soccer program as her gift. My daughter replied, “She’d love that! Thanks for thinking of it. She already has enough stuff.”
Do your kids have too much stuff? As we approach the Christmas season and parents—and grandparents—start thinking about the gifts they want to get their children, many will realize their child already has a room brimming with a wide variety of “stuff.” How do you choose a meaningful, lasting gift that won’t just get lost amongst all the other “stuff”?
Well, how about choosing to give an experience instead? Here’s three reasons to give experiences, not things, this year:
We own a lot of stuff! Do our kids really need more stuff?
This idea of giving experiences—like a soccer program—is becoming increasingly popular with both kids and their parents. It builds anticipation—first you get the gift, then you get to wait to enjoy the gift—and makes lasting memories without cluttering up the house.
If you have an academically-curious young person we have the perfect experience gift for them—summer STEM camp! Our summer camps, which are a unique fusion of science, technology, and truth, are packed with hands-on STEM activities, biblical apologetics training, fellowship with other campers and counsellors, and so much more. Our campers tell us the memories they made at camp will stay with them a long time (and several of our campers have loved camp so much they’ve come back as counselors!).
Time spent at Camp Infinity is a memory your young person will cherish—and they will grow academically and spiritually while making these great memories. What a gift to find under the tree! Learn more and apply today at CampInfinity.com/camps.
