Ready, Move, Learn!

This camp is for entering 1st-6th graders.  1st – 2nd grade will meet on Thursdays.  3rd – 6th grade will meet on Wednesdays. Our campers will be taken through a series of motor activities designed to prep their bodies for learning activities. When children learn to move and control their bodies they are better equipped to interact with their environment and improve their ability to learn. This camp can serve as a good foundation for Friendship Factory or Social Superheroes to help kids prepare their bodies for learning so they can better participate in a group or class setting. We will be working on activities to help regulate their bodies to promote participation across all environments.
