Reasons To Sign Your Child Up For Our Kids Summer Camp
There are myriad benefits when it comes to promoting an active lifestyle from a young age. However, registering your child for the Ellis Athletic Center camp isn’t just about them — it’s also about you
Having a Gym With Childcare Gives You Time For You
When you drop your child off at 9 a.m. for their fun-filled day, you get three hours to yourself. Since you’re already at the gym, you can get in whatever workout you want without needing to rush back to pick your children up from child care. Plus, since the camp extends for three hours (with the option of an additional 45-minute lunch), you also have time to actually relax at the gym.
When’s the last time you were able to take a long shower after your workout, taking advantage of our laundry service and locker room amenities? Have you ever had time to just sit down and grab a refreshing smoothie from our Juice Bar? When your kid is having a blast and making new friends on the basketball court, you can relax at the gym.
Or, since our local gym is conveniently located in the middle of the Ellis Preserve, you can run around town and do some errands while the kids are busy.
Whatever you choose to do with these three hours, they’re yours!
Our Summer Camp Is Flexible
Registration for the Kids Summer Camp was designed to make your life as a parent easier. You don’t need to worry about whether you’re around for the whole week, whether you need to pick your kid up early on Wednesday for an appointment, or whether you want to make a game-time decision about camp. You can register on a daily basis or for the week(s), so there’s nothing too binding about the camp.
If you have a child who tends to be shy or to get separation anxiety, a three-hour camp is also the perfect amount of time. You can see how they do on the first day without worrying about paying in advance for a week they might not even want to attend. (That’s usually not a problem, though, as our trained counselors are well-versed in supporting all types of children and keeping the kids very engaged!).
The Kids Summer Camp Is A Blast
Our summer camp itinerary isn’t just a quick game of basketball or tag outside. We create an enriching and active environment where kids of all abilities can come together and play. Your child will participate in sports activities, including learning the fundamentals of a few different sports, crafts, obstacle courses, outdoor games, peer-to-peer relationship building, and much more! Each camp is supervised by licensed and trained professionals, so your children are in good hands.
