Many parents and caregivers are searching for ways to keep their children physically active, learning, and having fun during the summer break. Ongoing research supports the importance of quality camp programs and how they can promote academic success and a healthy lifestyle.
How to Choose a Program for Kids
While it’s important to choose a program your child will enjoy, it’s also important to find a program that will keep your child active, involved, and moving. Look for a fun and imaginative camp program that includes both physical and educational activities for kids that will reinforce their academic achievements, challenge their imagination, and develop their self-confidence. Seasonal Camp programs at child-centred facilities like The Little Gym offer high quality, age-appropriate, interest-driven programs designed to help children learn new skills and build self-confidence as they master challenges.
Choosing the right camp can make a real difference in how well your child is able to transition from the break into the new school year. While the break should offer families a chance to relax without the constant pressure of school, homework, and after-school schedules, it’s important to offer children alternatives to screen time, and other passive activities, that can erode both academic skills and physical fitness. Camps for kids provide an opportunity to unplug as they explore their own creativity and build independence in a safe, secure environment.
Camps at The Little Gym
The Little Gym offers flexible scheduling options allow parents to enrol their children for as short as one day, or as long as the entire week. Age-appropriate activities at the Super Quest Camp vary from day-to-day, offering children ages 3 to 10 years a fresh experience each time. Interest-driven Skill Thrill camps allow children to repeat a camp as they refine certain skills. Parents can also register their child for one of The Little Gym’s regularly classes for kids four months through 12 years, in the afternoon classes, to keep children moving, learning, and building skills throughout the holidays.
