Kids learn basic gymnastics skills in age-appropriate classes such as Diaper Daredevils for children just learning to walk or Flip Flop Shop for aspiring cheerleaders. Parents drop off tykes aged 3–9 for camp from 9 a.m. to noon Monday through Friday for daily gymnastics lessons, story time, arts and crafts, and games. Children should wear comfortable clothing and bring a peanut-free snack and drink. Each week structures lessons and activities around a different theme, such as the circus, knights and princesses, or man vs. self.<p>
The Champion Factory
Owners Brian and Teena Veth call on their skills as former gymnasts and cheerleaders as well as current parents to safely introduce kids to the world of gymnastics and circus arts. Their energetic instructors help children to learn social and listening skills while teaching them coordination, strength, and flexibility. Instructors encourage students to move at their own pace while bouncing atop trampolines, deftly crossing balance beams, and somersaulting across cushy floor mats. Parents look on from an open seating area, offering words of encouragement or quotes on spiritual balance from Confucius.
Fall, winter, and spring classes are organized by age group and often feature seasonally themed lesson plans. In addition to summer camps, where kids stay busy with creative games and activities, the center also hosts birthday parties and special events.
