Spring into Movement with Spring Track Out Camp

January 24th, 2018

Ok, so, yes, we are in the midst of some of the coldest temperatures of the year but just as we were not too long ago saying we couldn’t believe how fast Christmas came, we’ll be saying the same about spring. The spring season in this area is beautiful (minus that whole pollen period) with temperatures pretty much perfect and the hint of summer just around the corner. With the water-filled pool, lake, and beach season of summer coming, before we know it, you may start to think about swim lessons for your kids.

Here at Granite Falls we believe swimming to be a vital skill for all kids so we’ve incorporated daily lessons (in addition to open swim) into each child’s camp day. Each week our campers are split into ability level groups with swim instructors Ms. Allison and Ms. Geraldine guiding our least experienced swimmers through the basics of swimming while challenging those who are at a much more advanced level with individual medleys (IMs), hundred kicks, ironmans, and tombstones.

The camp kids also get four fitness classes each week. Kidz Fit, an upbeat mix of exercise and games with the elementary age child in mind, with Ms. Geraldine is on Mondays and Wednesdays. On Tuesday afternoons, Ms. Tammy brings the fun for Kidz Funk – 45 minutes of high/low impact cardio dance with sass. Wrapping up our week we have 30 minutes of Kidz Yoga (pajamas optional), designed just for kids, with Ms. Cheryl.

      

Throw in our park visits and active games in the fitness room and campers are guaranteed to have moved their bodies in a large variety of ways that ensure hungry stomachs and sleepy heads at the end of their camp day! Don’t worry – we’ve built in rest, recovery, and down time with our crafts, hands-on activities, journal time, morning meetings, and post-lunch hang out time.

     

If this camp experience sounds like something your child would enjoy then make plans to join us this spring (winter camp spots are still available as well). Registration for our spring camps opened this Monday, January 22, with special first week of registration discounts happening through Friday January 26.
