Without extracurricular activities, children will take up sedentary pastimes, such as playing video games or baseball. Get them up and moving with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
$15 for a half day of Fantastic Summer Camp (a $32 value)
Children aged 3.5 years and older bring a snack from home for a half day of summer-camp sessions that take place from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. from June 11 to August 17. Certified staff members will lead arts 'n' crafts, fitness games, gymnastics, and other activities. This deal is not valid for specialty camps.
$90 for a 90-minute birthday party for up to 12 kids (a $185 value)
The guest of honor receives a gold medal and T-shirt, and a party coordinator supervises play on the trampolines and tumble track. Parents can decide how much time is spent on the floor or in the party room, so kids can hone their rock-climbing skills and prepare for careers as mountain-goat stunt doubles while staff cleans up decorations.
$20 for $65 toward any classes
Flip 2 It Sports Center
The fun-loving team members at Flip 2 It Sports Center—whose collective credentials include a degree in child development, coaching experience in competitive cheer and gymnastics, and CPR and first-aid training—strive to cement physical activity as a part of kids' daily lives. They have made it their mission to provide a safe, welcoming place where kids can learn important life skills. Instructors lead fitness-oriented classes ranging from parkour-like urban gymnastics and floor-exercise-focused tumbling sessions to jazz and hip-hop dance. The facility's excellence in teaching made it a finalist in CityVoter's Best Cheer and Gymnastics category in 2011 and 2014.
The center organizes activities such as field trips and parents' nights out. They also host special events including summer camps and princess-in-training days that feature a tea party, makeover, and guide to selecting moat-worthy goldfish.
