Summer Camp for Rising JK-1st Graders

The Sports Conditioning and Movement Program builds physical fitness and sports skills for rising JK-1st graders with games and fun! Join Coach Chester for days full of camp classics that develop the social-emotional skills of cooperative play and teambuilding, and physical skills like hand-eye coordination and ball handling, in the bigger spiritual picture of following Christ's example of being a servant of all. Games and activities will generally be non-competitive as campers learn to work together to solve problems or accomplish missions. Be sure to send a daily, healthy snack for the recess break.

HappyFeet uses nursery rhymes, songs, stories and fun games with a soccer ball to train motor skill development, dynamic dribbling, shooting skills and fitness. The HappyFeet curriculum is designed to gradually develop ever more advanced physical skills. To make sure every child has a positive experience, HappyFeet classes are non-competitive with each camper playing with his/her own Bob the ball.

Be sure to pack a daily, healthy snack for the recess break.

Fun in the sun - summer's begun!

Memphis is full of beauty, history, and creativity! We will use our city as inspiration in a wide variety of projects in this art camp.

2 sports ... 1 awesome week! Little Dribblers will have a blast experience the fun of both basketball and soccer in a fun and nurturing environment.

We also include songs, drills, and games to incorporate numeracy and language skills each day. Most important, we keep it fun and exciting for the kids while promoting self-esteem, sports etiquette, and the benefits of exercise.
