Distribution of prizes and certificates must be there at the end of the course. The camp organizers should see every kid should get a consolation prize for their participation in the camp.
In my opinion it is very good to send the children to organized summer camps where children will get an exposure to mingle with other children of caste and creed and get accustomed to be independent, and also develop their personality.

Though all these happened when I was young say a generation back, now a days it have become a competitive world. Kids have to learn a lot of things. But I personally feel that summer classes for swimming or skating or personality development classes. I have always felt that parents can make the children improve their handwriting and also learn different stories. Now a days almost all the household have either a laptop or a computer. And many parents either both or one know the complete operation of computers, instead of sending their kids to computer classes to learn basics like word, excel or powerpoint, if the parents themselves can teach that to the kids
(ofcourse with a little bit of patience), the bonding between them both is sure to improve and kids will also learn with great interest.
Only thing that we wont get when we parents teach things like this at home is a certificate. But I feel that the bonding between the parents and kids become more important than a certificate.
Thanks and Regards,
