What is the key focus of this Summer Camp?

Your child will attend full day of gymnastics, ,rock climbing, games, art projects and conditioning. Children will start out with a warm-up, soon after arrival. This will consist of running, jumping, or completing obstacle courses. During camp there will be structured games and fitness challenges such as team building activities, ice breakers, and conditioning. Depending on the location and agenda for the day, campers will either start with Gymnastics or Rock-Climbing. During the Rock- Climbing course, your child will learn different climbing techniques and complete challenges.

What form of climbing will they learn?

The wall is structured primarily for bouldering (bouldering is un-roped climbing with a specific height limit, and requires no technical training or harness). Although this will be the main focus, your child will also have access to the full wall, which is no higher than 12ft.

Will my child be safe?

Campers will always remain under supervision of well-trained instructors. Your child will wear a harness and rock climbing shoes during belaying for extra security. We will provide the shoes and disinfect them after each use.

What should I bring for my child to wear?

Girls would need leotard and shorts for climbing. Boys should wear shorts and a T-shirt. All children should have socks to wear during climbing, for sanitation purposes.

Is it a good idea to leave my child during camp?

Due to COVID restrictions, we ask that parents do not stay for Summer Camp. Also, camp is an independent activity for a growing child, and parents in the lobby area distract children from listening to their instructor and or interacting with other children.

Should I send my child with something to eat?

Yes! A bagged lunch ( we do have a refrigerator for lunch storage) and a should bring a snack of their choice. We will have some treats and snacks to offer throughout the summer so please let us know if your child has any food allergies. Lakeshore Academy will provide lunch of pizza or hotdogs and we will order lunch for all the kids. We will invite a novelty dessert truck to the parking lot on occasion for an additional cash fee. 

What time should I arrive to pick my child up from camp?

Please pick ups your child promptly at 3:30.
