When it comes to summer camps, there is certainly no shortage of options. From the YMCA to local churches to university-sponsored youth camps, kids could be in a different place every week of the summer. With all of that competition, what sets summer camps at Bodies in Motion apart? What makes us special?
I had a chat with our Activities Director (a fancy title for the dude who comes up with the ideas) to find out more about what makes our camps special.
This year, you’ll find the following camps:
Where else can you find such a wide variety of experiences?! Also, even though some of our most popular camps are “repeated” two or three times over the summer, each version has its own unique twist, so no two weeks will ever be the same. For that matter, no two summers will ever be the same, since camps are updated and changed out on a yearly basis.
Bodies in Motion offers camps for kids ages 3-13. Certain camps are geared more toward specific age groups (we don’t take the three-year-olds mountain biking, for example). However, you will find camps to cover every age group every week. Kids are also placed in specific groups by age, so the older kids don’t feel like it’s being dumbed down, and the younger kids don’t feel intimidated.
Camps run from 9:00am to 3:00pm, but pre-camp care starts at 7:00am, and post-camp care ends at 6:00pm. You can rest easy knowing that your child is well-cared for, regardless of your crazy work schedule. Speaking of being well-cared for; we can also provide hot lunches if your mornings are rushed. And let’s face it, when was the last time you didn’t have a rushed morning?
At Bodies in Motion, employees are referred to as “Motioneers”. They are the people who get guests moving, thus creating motion. The summer camp hiring process starts early, since there is quite a bit of training necessary for these Motioneers. Everyone who works at Bodies in Motion is required to maintain up-to-date first aid and CPR certifications. Summer camp staff go through extensive training to make sure they know how to resolve conflicts and manage their groups. This ensures that every camper has the best possible experience while staying safe.
Go Big or Go Home
Some of our camps have some really special features. Our Ninja Warrior camp, for example, is being offered in three different sessions this summer. Each session will feature a different special guest who has appeared on American Ninja Warrior. Our Mountain Bike Camp is being offered in two different levels this year. If participants like the first camp, they can come back for the second and build their skills even more! Splash Camp is one of our most popular camps, for good reason. At the end of the week, we bring huge water inflatables for the campers to play on. Lastly, Adventure Camp is being offered in three unique sessions as well: Urban Adventure, Camping, and Explore Idaho. The amount of epic in just that sentence is mind-boggling.
Bodies in Motion is summer camp central. With such a wide variety of mentally and physically stimulating camps, we keep kids moving, learning, and growing all summer long. Forget the, “I’m boooored….there’s nothing to dooooo” moans and groans. Ignite activity all summer long by going to campsforkidsidaho.com and signing up today!
