Dragons’ Den winning organization X Movement is the global leader in delivering social-emotional learning and FUN to youth of all ages and walks of life. Now they are offering SUMMER CAMPS in our area. After delivering extraordinary experiences to over 1.5M kids in schools, they’ve partnered with leading organizations such as Nike, Hockey Hall of Fame and more to create the BEST SUMMER CAMP IN THE WORLD for kids 5-14 in the Greater Toronto Area.
X Movement Summer Camps bring a holistic approach to health, and integrate MOVEMENT (eg. dance, yoga, sports, martial arts), MINDSET (eg. social skills, self-reflection, positivity, confidence), and MYSTERY (eg. arts, creative problem solving, STEM-inspired activities) to help families raise healthy, positive, and extraordinary children. X Movement’s counsellors are world-class life coaches that will engage, support, and encourage campers to discover their extraordinary selves! ”
Various camp options are available in locations across the GTA, including the Nike Kids Camp Experience, X-Plorer Camp in Brampton, X-Legends Camp in Etobicoke and further options in Stouffville.
Designed in partnership with Nike Sports Camp Canada, the X Movement + Nike Kids Camp is an eXtra special camp focused on holistic mind and body wellness habits to help campers find their inner star! Campers elevate their mind and body through experiencing holistic movement, practising positive mindset skills, and exploring creativity and passions through mystery-themed challenges.
Movement activities include dance, yoga, HIIT, and martial arts-inspired (no-contact) routines. Campers train the mind through lessons such as self-reflection, visualization, goal-setting, and positive self-talk. Mystery challenges help campers to discover their passions and explore creativity through games and challenges, such as creating a giant confidence-themed board game, talent shows that celebrate diversity, wacky art shows, and more.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime day camp that feels like an overnight camp. In small age-appropriate groups led by an X-Guide, campers get to explore mindfulness and zen-like activities in the Chill Zone, or play games and sports such as basketball and volleyball in the Play Zone. The Creative Zone has surprise activities, including DJ’ing, arts, science experiments (like slime!), robotics, and even space exploration.
Campers get their energy out in the Move Zone with classes such as dance, martial arts-inspired movement, and fitness. Finally, the Connect Zone is for the camp community. Whether in pairs, small groups, or with all campers and X-Guides, participants practice social skills and build friendships for life.
X-Legend explores what it means to be a “legend”: to push through adversity, to have big dreams in life and to lead others to do the same. Taking place in the Hockey Hall of Fame’s D.K. (Doc) Seaman Hockey Resource Centre, this is a legendary camp experience that increases confidence and brings smiles and laughter through games, sport, dance, fitness, mindfulness, and lots of legend-themed life lessons.
This camp is mostly outdoors and largely focuses on easy and fun sport-based games and activities. It is also integrated with XM’s mind-body fitness challenges (such as dance, yoga, and martial arts). Finally, the Hockey Hall of Fame joins in guiding campers to discover their leader within and also surprises campers with some special experiences.
Activities include games, group dance battles, choreography challenges, mindful movement such as Yoga and Tai Chi and end-of-week performances. Campers are encouraged to explore diversity through global dance styles such as Hip-hop, Soca, Bollywood, Salsa and more.
Campers engage in self-discovery challenges, martial arts movement routines, self-defence skills and mindfulness activities. Participants also discover their Xtraordinary Power to stand for themselves, others and the world around them.
Participants get energized through daily movement activities such as fitness, dance, yoga, martial arts and sports while learning practical tools and coping skills. These come from the world of self-development, psychology and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
This experience is for campers that want a high-energy, movement-based camp experience. Kids explore movement activities such as fitness, dance, yoga, sport, martial arts and other high-energy team building games.
For those X’ers that would like to experience an entire summer of fun with X Movement, there’s the special All Summer Passport, which gives campers access to any X-camp, at any location (including the specialty camps with Hockey Hall of Fame and Nike), and on any week! As an added bonus, these campers get a dedicated X-Coach to check in on their summer experience, a special X-diary to capture their experience and a special X-shirt to celebrate their Xtra Special participation.
For all camps, multi-week and sibling discounts are available upon request.
