Kids, like Ponce de León, need constant supervision while exploring, or they’ll simply vanish into a jungle in search of eternal youth. Keep children occupied with non-fountain-searching pursuits with today's Groupon to Eagle's Wings Athletics in Allen and Prosper. Choose between the following options:
- For $79, you get five full days of summer day camp (a $160 value).
- For $49, you get five half-days of summer day camp (a $100 value).
This Groupon waives the normal $20 individual registration fee. Eagle's Wings Athletics kindles athletic passions, placing children ages 3 and up into age-appropriate camp groups and coaching them in a wide range of athletics from gymnastics to rock climbing. Different themes, such as luau and wacky Olympics, run each week to engage camper interest and add an extra element of continuity to each string of games or crafts. With a student-instructor ratio of 10 to one for ages 6 and up and eight to one for ages 5 and under, kids are never ignored or misplaced underneath the gym mats' bottomless pit. Older kids who wish to enhance the boredom-blasting power of camp with a sprinkle of leadership can enroll in Eagle's Wings' CIT program for 7th- and 8th-graders to shadow counselors and help them corral little ones.
Eagle’s Wings’ summer camps focus on building sportsmanship and leadership skills that will help kids later in life, whether they are striving to become a professional athlete or want to build the world's largest house of bendy straws. Based on a list of challenges given on the first day (Monday), each camper sets concrete goals for themselves and celebrates their accomplishments with family at an awards ceremony on Friday afternoons. Half-day camps go from 8 a.m. to noon, or noon to 4 p.m., and full-day camps run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Check the summer-adventure-camp schedule for upcoming dates and themes.
Eagle's Wings Athletics
The gymnastic experts at Eagle's Wings Athletics aim to help their students build both physical skills and self-esteem. Instructors— many of whom boast competitive backgrounds and gymnastic championships—help children as young as 18 months develop motor skills in pre-school classes, preparing them for boys and girls programs. As students cartwheel into each new class level, their gymnastics teachers help them hone skills in Olympic events such as floor exercise, balance beam, and the bars. Staff members can also teach kids to flip during trampoline and tumbling classes. In addition to the standard class lineup, competitive opportunities take gymnastics and cheer teams to regional, national, and interdimensional competitions—and open gym and camp programs provide additional access to the community.
