Have you made your plans for keeping the kids active this summer yet?
Whether you’ve got a serious athlete who wants to keep their skills sharp during the summer break, or you have a kid who just wants to kick a ball around with other kids their age, there’s a summer sports camp for your family. But be quick about registering – you don’t want these sports & fitness camps to fill up! Luckily, here in Huntsville we’ve got a lot of great options and today we’re highlight just a few. Be sure to visit our 2014 Summer Camp Guide for even more options!
Rocket Soccer? Yes, Please!
ROCKET CITY UNITED
Ages 5 – 14
Rocket City United has been providing excellent camps for kids all over Madison County for several years now, and they’ve got their soccer skills camps down pat. Facilitated by actual RCU players as coaches, there are eight different camps offered at three different locations in our area, all broken down via age level. Now that’s convenient! All their camps include a RCU t-shirt, ball, and free ticket to their June 7th match against Chattanooga, so you definitely get some bang for your buck.
Shoot Some Hoops
J. SMITH HOOPS
Ages 6 – 15
This basketball camp is run by the all-star Smith Family from Hoover, AL, and this is the third year they’ve taken their camp on the road to the Rocket City. Joe, Jason, Jaime, Jordan, Jada, JoAnn, and Joe Sr. all work together for the same mission: to help your kid “get better” in a really fun way. The camp is at Columbia High School July 7-10 from 8:30 AM – 12:30 PM.
Martial Arts & More
ALEXANDER’S MARTIAL ARTS
Ages 5 – 12
Don’t be mislead, this summer camp is SO much more than martial arts. In addition to karate, there’s also swimming, field trips, arts & crafts, and a great personal development program with an anti-bullying element. Alexander’s has three camps to choose from: the Madison location is all summer long (May 27 – August 1); the Hampton Cove location has a week-long camp from July 14-18; the Winchester location has a week-long camp from July 21-25. Each camp is from 7:30 AM – 5:30 PM.
Tumble Into Summer
LITTLE GYM OF HUNTSVILLE
Ages 3 – 12
The Little Gym camps combine physical activity and games with arts, crafts and special events. Each week offers an interactive learning theme and each day brings a different, creative lesson plan. Plus, flexible scheduling options allow you to sign up for several weeks, a single week or even just a day at a time. Older kids will love the Cheerleading Camps, and younger kids will delight in camps like Super Kids’ Quest: Green Beard’s Pirate Ship!
