Kids FitCamp is a summer camp that is designed to be FUN for kids but has a purpose in helping kids get good healthy exercise each day. The main purpose of FitCamp is to make fitness FUN for kids; in other words, there will be many times that they're "playing games" and won't even realize that they're exercising!
Who Can Benefit From FitCamp?
ALL kids and teens! This camp is designed for general fitness to help kids and teens develop properly so that they can be healthy functioning adults. A lack of activity, especially seen in teens, can impede normal, healthy functional living later on.
What Will My Child Be Doing for 4 Hours? (Will they really be "working out" for 4 hours?)
Camp format is listed and described more in detail below. Each day, we'll take the kids through a series of beneficial exercises (with a proper warm-up), and then we'll incorporate games that reinforce those skills. Other fun games will be included to keep the kids moving and having fun.
We WILL take a snack break each morning and will get out of the heat/sun when needed. The kids will have plenty of opportunities to drink supportive fluids, also.
Finally, we'll use the pool to "cool off" after lunch, which will be a fun way to end the day!
Why Choose Kids FitCamp?
Our number one priority is to make sure that your child has a GREAT time at camp. We'll create memories that last a lifetime and we'll enforce healthy habits. After almost 20 years of running camps, we understand that the worst thing that can happen is for your child to have a bad experience at camp. Every effort is made to ensure that each child is safe and happy!
Every child will leave camp with an award that describes a positive attribute that they possess! (We have an ice cream party on each Friday, and we give out Superlatives.)

9:30 AM - 10:30 AM - Warm-up/Workout- During this time, we'll do our workout of the day, which will include a great warm-up that will actually help your child's mobility, flexibility, and coordination. This is not a "static" warm-up but involves getting the kids moving in a way that warms up muscles specific to the exercises we'll be doing for the day. The workout will be focused and effective but will NOT be extremely long. It will be catered to the group's fitness level and age.
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM - Games plus snack break- We'll make sure the kids take small breaks throughout the morning to cool off and drink lots of fluids. Games will be fun ways to keep kids moving and exploring different skills. Watch the video to see examples of games and exercises! Kids will need to bring their own snack, unless approved to buy snacks from the Palisades.
11:30 AM - 12:00 PM - Dynamic and/or static stretching routine- Post-workout work on flexibility to help kids increase their range of movement and improve weaknesses.
