Why Attend A Magic Day Camp ?
An article in ABOUT.COM, which is a part of the New York Times Co., reported on a recent research project. The results of that study presented at the British Association For The Advancement Of Science Festival in Liverpool showed that teaching magic to children and youth can boost their confidence and improve their social skills.
The study involved 50 pupils, ages10 through12, who were assessed for social skills before and after a single magic lesson. "Learning requires self-discipline and an understanding of how other people think and an ability to entertain." said Professor Richard Wiseman, the lead researcher from the University of Hertfordshire.
It is a well known fact among the magic fraternity that, magic makes one think about how a trick looks from another person's perspective. The study discovered that this could teach empathy. While magic requires many hours of practice time and self-discipline, it also requires one to think on ones feet while performing. Problem solving skills are also developed as you have to be able to get out of a tight fix on the spot when things go wrong. Professor Wiseman found that children and youth were significantly more sociable and confident after just one magic lesson then after a standard social education lesson.
Another conclusion reached from the project , unlike playing computer games, learning magic trick encouraged children and youth to interact with their friends and family. They have learned and new skill and want to show it off. This also requires that they are in front of a group and the center of attention, something which most children and youth who lack social skills and struggle with self-confidence issues desire but do not often experience.
While attending a Magic Day Camp your camper will learn magic tricks that they can do while building their presentation skills and self-esteem. Best of all they will learn all they need to know to put on an amazing magic show for family and friends as well as perform in the evening show with Dr. Ladd.
Since learning should be fun the Magic Day Camp is designed to be interactive and hands-on. Campers receive personal attention all through the day, so they can grasp the concepts being presented. When learning is successful campers feel better about themselves. Attending a one day Magic Day Camp can help your camper feel more confident which can affect the rest of his or her life.
