Left to their own devices, children will chew through dry wall, eat a four-course meal of crayons, and construct complex chromosome models using Legos. Keep kids healthily occupied and engaged with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get four children's summer-camp sessions at The Little Gym (a $208 value), located in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. Sessions run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
With more than 30 years of kid-entertaining experience, The Little Gym provides a safe and noncompetitive environment wherein kiddies ages 3–12 can exercise their brains as well as their bodies. The summer-camp sessions let youngsters rev their indefatigable energy motors with myriad physical activities and hoot-a-minute games. Arts-and-crafts classes emphasize various hands-on activities that facilitate bonding, boost the ability to listen, and calibrate motor skills to achieve more accurate high-fives. Each week features an interactive learning theme, with unique lesson plans highlighted daily. The summer-camp schedule lets parents sign up for multiple days in a row or even one session at a time, mimicking the flexibility of a double-jointed Gumby.
