The Little Gym Announces Two All-New Camps for Summer 2014

New Camp Curriculums Bring Fun Adventures and Skill-Building Opportunities to Kids

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 03/06/14 -- For much of the country, it has been a long, stormy winter. But here's a sure sign that summer is on its way. The Little Gym is now enrolling children in two all-new age-appropriate and interest-driven summer camp programs: Super Kids' Quest Summer Camp for children ages 3 to 8 years and Skill Thrill Summer Camp for children ages 6 to 12 years.

"We know that one size does not fit all when it comes to engaging kids in summer activities," said Ruk Adams, president and CEO, The Little Gym International. "That's why we're offering two very different experiences this summer. The 'Super Kids' Quest Summer Camps' are programs that will appeal to children who enjoy active, fun, group activities built around age-appropriate imaginative themes that are engaging and challenging. Our new 'Skill Thrill Summer Camps' focus on enhancing specific beginner, intermediate or advanced level gymnastics skills with themed activities that deliver fun and success."

Completely reworked around a new camp format, the Super Kids' Quest Summer Camp challenges children to spend three adventure-filled hours a day completing a fun, exciting mission or "Quest." Each Quest employs a creative storyline designed to incorporate The Little Gym's Three Learning Dimensions as kids have a chance to exercise their bodies (Get Moving!), their imaginations (Brain Boost!), and their team cooperative skills (Citizen Kid!) to complete their mission.

Also new for 2014, Skill Thrill Camps help children take their gymnastics skills to the next level by providing a more intense program focused on learning a specific skill, while reviewing and practicing all-around gymnastic skills. This mix of the new and the familiar provides the perfect opportunity for each child to have fun, experience success, and boost their confidence!

Both options offering flexible scheduling, allowing busy families to include The Little Gym camp programs in their children's summer activities for several full weeks, a week, or even just a day at a time. The themes in the Super Kids' Quest Summer Camp vary from week to week, offering children a fresh experience each time. Individual Skill Thrill camps may be offered more than once throughout the summer to allow children to repeat a camp and continue to practice and perfect certain skills. The exact schedule varies from gym-to-gym, and parents can also register their children for the gym's regular schedule of age-appropriate summer classes filled with movement, music, learning and laughter for children four months through 12 years.

"In both our summer classes and our summer camps, the focus is on fun and success," said Adams. "But our programs are also carefully designed to help children carry over the learning and socialization process from their school year while they challenge their minds and their bodies in a welcoming, non-competitive and secure environment. We want children not only to gain confidence in their own abilities but also to respect and support the abilities of others."
