Summer is often the most wonderful time of the year for kids, no homework, no school, just fun in the sun. But for parents, summer can sometimes be a time of stress. What to do with the kids for 3 months? How can we keep the kids occupied? What can they do other than play video games all day? Are there healthier options?

Kids’ sports camps are a great way to get them active over the summer months. Fitness camps keep your kids healthy in so many ways. Here are 10 reasons why you should send your kids to camp this summer:

  1. The overall health benefits. It’s no secret that moving your body every day carries great weight in everyone’s physical, mental, and emotional health. Just 60 minutes of physical activity a day greatly improves physical and mental health of school age children.
  2. Exposure to fitness. Getting your kids started with fitness early on is a great way to ensure they know it’s an incredibly important aspect of life. Kids fitness camps are a perfect environment for them to be exposed to new things in a safe environment.
  3. Reducing screen time. Kids need to move every day, but especially in the summer, when it’s easy to sit on the couch in front of the TV all day long. Sports camps are engaging and fun, and more beneficial than hours of screen time.
  4. Keep their minds sharp. Exercising daily improves memory, cognitive function, and overall brain health.
  5. Kids sports and fitness camps help kids build a passion for sports. You never know, your kid may be the next star athlete thanks to their time spent at summer camp!
  6. Improving social skills. Your kids will have the opportunity to improve their social skills and meet other kids their age who share their interests. Summer camp is where lifetime friendships can be made.
  7. Building confidence. Your kids will be able to build their self esteem and confidence by trying new things and getting out of their comfort zone.
  8. Building positive habits. Instilling the importance of fitness at an early age is vital to making sure your kids are as happy and healthy as possible as they grow.
  9. Teaching discipline. By learning from and listening to our coaches, your kids will learn time management, commitment, and balance in an interactive and fun way.
  10. Finally, it’s fun! Sports and fitness camps are a fun and enjoyable experience, especially for kids.
