The golfing gurus at Edwin Watts Golf Academy diagnose and correct their students' poor swing and putting habits in an effort to help them improve their shots and lower their scores. In one-on-one swing-analysis sessions, students learn a repeatable swing that eliminates tendencies they may have to slice, hook, push, or pull the ball. A special laser attaches to the end of the player's club and tracks the swing path while JC Video swing-analysis software records the session from two separate angles, lest analysis be thrown off by only looking at the golfer’s good side. Putting analysis employs Tomi technology to measure eight separate parameters of the putting stroke, from clubhead orientation at address to swing path and tempo. After swing and putting lessons, students may access the recordings on a password-protected website, so they can forward videos to friends or sports-documentary filmmakers.
Great American Storage keeps keepsakes safe within roomy, temperature-controlled units watched over by security guards and video surveillance. Using complimentary handcarts or the center's free truck rental, customers tote trappings to the unit of their choice and barricade them behind a secure cylinder lock. Because each unit is climate controlled, belongings remain in pristine condition, safe from the warping caused by humidity, the melting caused by heat, or the gremlin liquefaction caused by excess water damage. 5'x10' spaces offer the space of a typical walk-in closet, snugly supporting the furniture and effects of a one-bedroom or studio apartment. Storers with more sizable stuff, such as bedroom sets, can opt for the 10'x15' unit, which measures at the size of a large bedroom or an incredibly large small bedroom. Security cameras keep tabs on any suspicious visitors or lovelorn impulse-buy racks, and an on-site post office lends easy passage of incoming additions or space-saving shipments. Great American Storage does not allow some items in storage units.

Kids 'R' Kids extends its brain-boosting educational offerings to kids from 6 weeks to 12 years old, including curricula such as an infant program, a toddler program, and a before- and after-school program for kids age 5–12. A variety of specialized programs focus on topics such as health and fitness, foreign languages, and computers—three growth industries in a world increasingly dominated by Spanish-speaking, baseball-obsessed robots.
Since 2007, the Robots-4-U team has been teaching children a program of STEM?science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Children absorb skills and knowledge through entertaining interactions with instructors, other campers, and robot kits. The camp maintains a 16:1 student to instructor ratio, ensuring children receive the proper amount of individual attention. Campers build robot kits comprising a brain unit and sensory appendages, which replicate seeing, hearing, touching and reading minds. Once the bots are assembled, children enter their creations into racing, dancing, and battle-bot challenges.
