During summer months, butterflies emerge from the cocoon just as children shed their adorable exterior and transform into sugar-crazed Tasmanian devils. Let your little devil burn off energy while learning something new with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a one-day summer adventure camp at Nova Gymnastics in Davie (a $48 total value). The camp (a $40 value) is held June 10 through August 19, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Early drop-off, which begins at 7:15 a.m., and late pickup, which lasts until 6 p.m., are included in the deal (an $8 value).
At Nova Gymnastics, kids of all athletic abilities tumble, romp, and mingle with other like-minded munchkins in a spacious 18,000-square-foot adventure emporium. The one-day summer adventure camp engages kids ages 4 and older in themed activities such as classes, contests, crafts, and games, as well as adventures, such as rock climbing, zip lining, bungee jumping, and gryphon petting. With a low camper-to-counselor ratio, small groups of 10–20 children can safely ride the rushing currents of on-site water slide or flit about like minnows in the outdoor swimming pool. Acrobatic, trapeze, and circus-centric activities allow kids to explore the ethereal world of the big top, and gymnastics, a foam pit, and hip-hop instruction let little ones remake the video for their favorite Mark Twain rap. There is no registration deadline, but space is limited.
Within an expansive 18,000-square-foot gymnasium, leotard-clad children and adults spring from gymnast equipment, honing skills for tumbling and trapeze to dance and overall fitness. Nova programs transform all ages of bodies with lessons from current and ex-circus performers, and the staff opens their doors after school for kids to come and play while developing cognitive, motor, and social skills. The camps are a crash course in gymnastics—extremely useful when escaping bears in a wooded forest—and the gym hosts birthday parties by granting access to trampolines, bounce houses, and rock-climbing areas.
