School’s out! The weather’s heating up, and the kids are anxious for long, lazy days. Or are they? Wouldn’t it be great if they’d be satisfied with an idyllic summer vacation with the entire family? Wouldn’t it be impressive if they’d read through that entire suggested reading list the teacher sent home for the summer?
Maybe your kids are looking for an exciting challenge with lots of other kids their age. Maybe you need an alternative for summer childcare. That’s why summer camps are so popular with bored kids and their busy parents.
A superhero theme shows the enthusiasm of camp counselors for this year’s National Fitness Center summer camps. It’s clear from the high energy level and the fitness stations at their recent open house that NFC aims for a camp experience that’s action-packed! Camps include everything from Olympic-themed events to soccer, science experiments, rock climbing and Isshinryu karate. All campers get the chance to swim, as well. Or they can focus on a week of swimming camp to learn competitive techniques and water safety.
“What makes camps different here,” explained NFC Area Program Director Courtney Watts, “is we’re focusing on getting kids active and healthy in a way they don’t even notice because they’re having so much fun!”
NFC camps are offered at five different locations: West Knoxville Signature, Tazewell Pike, Maryville, Morristown and Oak Ridge. You can ask at the front desk for a camp brochure for more details. Some camps may vary by location.
In addition to sports-themed camps, some camps focus on life skills like team building and creativity. If your kids are like mine and need to stay busy, these camps might be for them. No matter how fun your family vacation is, or how hard you try to impress them – let’s face it: your kids will often have more fun playing with other kids their age.
Best of luck with your family having a fun summer, and with keeping the kids occupied.
