Camp Fitness ~ Mind and Body
A summer designed around fun, fitness and personal growth. We stimulate the mind and body while building tools for life within each and every child. Each week explores around some age appropriate concepts that foster evolution in the areas of academics, social/emotional and cognitive growth. In addition our Camp Fitness program is exciting and down right FUN!
1) Spirit week
Take this week to not only have a great time, but embrace this opportunity to grow emotionally and cognitively. Incorporate through verbal instruction and concrete activities, a healthy way to think and live.
2) Gardening with a twist: Clean Healthy Living
The positive effects of gardening will ripple through a child’s entire life. A child’s natural curiosity often turns an activity like planting a seed into a learning experience filled with plenty of “Why” and “How” questions.
3) Obstacle Courses: A Metaphor For Life!
We can increase confidence through the challenge and reward of an obstacle course, as children are faced with choices to go on or turn back. Perseverance, fortitude, and self-worth are valuable life lessons attained through this adventure.
4) Obstacle Courses continued: A challenge of the mind and body for the purpose of good health
We can build on sequencing, strengthening, and coordination incorporating various activities to provide multiple sensory input.
5) Water play: Fostering a respect for water!
One sure way to get children active and engaged is to engage friends with games that involve water. They cool everyone down on a hot day and provide hours of entertainment and exploration. There is lots of laughter and working together to make choices for safety around water as a group. Exploration galore and sensory fulfilling!
6) Retro Movement: Good old fashioned fun and appreciation
Revisit a time when fun and movement were created simply. Bring back some elements of a simpler, slower-paced time. We treat children to a blast from the past with some traditional values. Children explore around being resourceful and creating within their means, building games and activities by incorporating equipment and materials readily available.
7) Imagination Creation: Self-expression through mind and body
Imagination: the ability to dream, create, improvise and, in the process, entertain oneself anywhere and anytime. Imagination integrates a child’s feelings and dreams and actions. The ability to generate alternatives allows children to become creative problem solvers.
8) Spirit Week
Take this week to, not only have a great time, but embrace this opportunity to grow emotionally and cognitively. Incorporate through verbal instruction and concrete activities, a healthy way to think, live, and express.
