Sending children to church camps and other activities is beneficial to the children as well as the community. From AWANA:

Awana helps churches and parents work together to develop spiritually strong children and youth who faithfully follow Jesus Christ. Our programs offer a proven approach for evangelizing and discipling kids in the church and community.

As a ministry leader for over 60 years, Awana is making an impact. A recent national survey found Awana to be as important to our alumni's spiritual foundation as all other church activities combined. Among alumni who participated in our programs for at least six years, 92.7 percent still attend church at least weekly as adults!

Each week, nearly two million kids ages 2 to 18 participate in Awana. This includes 1.07 million in 102 countries outside of the U.S., the most children that Awana has ever reached internationally.
