Summer camp can be one of the most rewarding & unforgettable experiences in a child’s life.
Enrolling your child in a summer Parkour camp at Freedom in Motion can be one of the best decisions you make as a parent this year. A week of climbing through an obstacle course, learning how to be a ninja? We bet you wish you had that when you were a kid!
Our well-organized camps connect kids to encouraging mentors, offers exciting new challenges, and creates space for new friendships to grow. Parkour summer camps will undoubtedly serve as an unforgettable childhood experience. In addition to great friendships and enduring memories, many important life skills are learned at camp. Here are five reasons kids should attend our Parkour camps:
Unplug from technology
Parents are giving their children the opportunity to enter a space where movement and play reign supreme. Through learning new ninja skills, playing parkour themed games with new friends, and following the guidance of the coaches, kids will forget about Instagram or Facebook (or whatever apps the kids are occupied with nowadays) and will be given the space to feel totally immersed in the task at hand here in the real world.
Make new friends Improve social skills
After just a few days in camp, students will know the names of their fellow campers. Students will get multiple opportunities to share about themselves and learn about others. Coaches will teach a variety of cooperative games and team challenges each day creating space for students to work together to overcome challenges as a team. Throughout camp, kids will practice the art of making new friends and seeing themselves as a member of a team.
Parkour is all about learning to move your body. FiM understands that each child is at a completely unique level of agility and coordination. Because Parkour focuses on the individual, each student will have ample opportunity to explore their own capabilities while receiving one-on-one attention from our coaches. Children will train their balance, speed, endurance, reflexes, and more. The best part is, they will be having so much fun they won’t ever realize the amazing workout they are getting.
Improve critical thinking
Freedom in Motion’s Camps are packed with physical and mental challenges designed to keep your kids on their toes. Our coaches will be crafting obstacle courses and 3D puzzles which students get a chance to navigate and interact with. These movement challenges will not only increase strength but will increase decision making speed while reducing mistakes. A vital skill that will carry across many aspects of your child’s life for years to come.
Each day of class will be led by FiM’s well-trained movement coaches. Students will undoubtedly see their coaches as a mentor and will be able to develop a respectful relationship with their camp leaders. The ability to follow instruction under the watch of a coach while interacting with new friends and daily challenges will prepare your child for many real-world situations. Enrolling your child in camp will develop their character and help craft them into a high functioning member of their communities.
In closing, experiences are one of the most valuable things you can gift a child. Sure, a new phone or some material object is nice, but the values and memories that come with an experience like a Parkour camp can last a lifetime. Freedom in Motion’s Parkour camps offer an exceptionally fun curriculum and create space for new friendships and lasting memories. No matter the body type or skill level, your child will benefit greatly from your gift of a parkour summer camp enrollment.
