Summer of Surf helps introduce children to the fun of surfing, even if they live nowhere near the ocean. For each class of nine surfers at Summer of Surf, there are three expert instructors to help students get the hang of one day hanging ten. Kids start off on the beach, getting acquainted with the feel of the surfboard and learning about water safety, surfboard balance, and key dialogue in Point Break. After that, students take to the water to practice standing up on the board and navigating beginner-friendly waves just off the beach. The company also offers transportation to and from inland areas to ensure every child has a chance to enjoy the water.

Throughout the day, Fitness For Life’s dance studio fills with upbeat music. One hour it’s classical, folk, and funk during Bollywood class, and the next it’s Polynesian drumbeats and reggae during Hot Hula class. This varied selection of music is needed to create the appropriate mood for the studio’s equally varied selection of dance-fitness classes, which includes yoga, Zumba, and boot camp. And in addition to being entertaining and expressive, the group workouts are also effective. They are designed to improve the body as a whole, which means developing cardio, muscular strength and endurance, body composition, flexibility, and the ability to taste protein in marshmallows. The studio also offers personal training and a relaxing lounge area with free Wi-Fi, apples, and lemon water.

Robots are more than shiny, flammable mannequins. They are machines that can ignite children's imaginations. Rolling Robots was started by two aerospace engineers who wanted to spark that excitement in children. They inspire young scientists with parties and workshops where kids can design, program, and create robots starting with the basic circuits. Once they've built their metal friends, kids can join the internationally competitive team to show off their futuristic skills or pit their robots in a battle for the right to conquer humanity.
