We all know that staying active is essential for a well-rounded, healthy life and this is especially true for kids who are forming healthy habits. This summer, MNP Community & Sport Centre summer camps can help your kids form these important, healthy habits that will benefit them their whole lives. It’s time for the kids to get off the screens and back to life with a variety of activities that will inspire them!
The MNP Sport Centre follows the Long Term Development Model from Sport For Life to support all ages in active living, including teaching the physical literacy skills that kids need to know. Throwing, catching, running, jumping, and kicking are basic movement skills and the benefits of these physical skills overflow into all areas of life. Exercise can also improve mental health, making it more important than ever during stressful times and it’s reassuring for parents to know that their kids are safely cared for and having fun!
The MNP Community & Sport Centre is ready for an amazing summer with their invigorating Sport Camps! Kids ages 2 – 13 can enjoy the active summer they need with incredibly fun days, under the leadership of qualified, enthusiastic instructors. Plus, if you work a long day, MNP Community & Sport Centre also offers pre-care from 7:30 to 8:30 am and post-care from 4:30 to 5:30 pm for full-day camps.
The camps at MNP Sport Centre use the concepts of CoreSPORT and SPORTainment. This two-pronged approach leads to amazing experiences for your kids! With CoreSPORT, participants learn basic skills for activities and sports using fundamental movement patterns that build agility, balance and coordination. They will develop skills in court sports, track and field, dodgeball, yoga, and other fitness activities. SPORTainment offers a diverse collection of amazing activities like the FLOATables, Gaga Pit, Bouncy Castle, and Ninja Chamber.
Taking advantage of the Centre’s excellent aquatic facilities, camps also include water fun as part of their daily activities. Read detailed camp descriptions for day camps that use the concepts of CoreSPORT and SPORTainment.
