Summer Learning at The Little Gym Challenges Kids' Bodies and Minds

Innovative Summer Camp Programs Help Minimize "Summer Slide"

SCOTTSDALE, AZ - (Marketwired - April 12, 2016) - Summer offers families an opportunity to spend time together without the demands of school schedules, homework and extra-curricular activities. But, the early childhood development professionals at The Little Gym note that it is much easier for kids to become sedentary without the structure of the school day. Additionally, a three-month break from classes can also lead to the "summer slide" - a phenomenon which researchers describe as a decrease in academic skills due to a lack of education during summer break.

"It is important for parents to seek out summer programs for their children that keep them moving and learning while having fun," said The Little Gym President and CEO, Ruk Adams. "At The Little Gym, we encourage children to challenge their bodies and build confidence in their own abilities. Likewise, we help children challenge their minds, carrying over the learning and socialization process from their school year. Our summer programs help minimize 'summer slide' and ease the transition from summer back into the new school year."

This summer, The Little Gym is offering two age-appropriate and interest-driven summer camp programs: Super Kids' Quest Summer Camp for children ages three to eight years and Skill Thrill Summer Camp for children ages six to 12 years.

Both options offer 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. Beyond the summer camp offerings, 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.
