Gymnastics provides an environmentally friendly way to burn youthful energy, unlike coal-powered swing sets. Encourage eco-conscious exuberance with this Groupon.
C$26 for One Day of Kids’ Summer Camp (C$50.85 Value)
Full-day summer camps run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and this Groupon is valid for the Starr for a Day session on a Monday or Wednesday. Staff instructors demonstrate gymnastics skills such as dancing, tumbling, and trampolining and set up activities that correlate with each week’s theme.
Dozens of veteran gymnasts serve as instructors in Starr Gymnastics’ three Ottawa-area facilities, where they favour instruction that emphasizes the most beneficial aspects of gymnastics: enjoyment, physical fitness, and socialization. Since only a small percentage of gymnastics athletes ever cartwheel their way to the competitive level, Starr Gymnastics' instructors teach proper balance-beam technique and safe tumbling skills without skimping on the fun, reminding their gleeful charges of gymnastics' inherent power to imbue agility and a foundational skill set easily applicable to turbo-kicking bad guys in dark alleys.
Starr's high-spirited staff occasionally spices up the play by inviting pint-sized gymnasts to don costumes or by darkening the arena while pupils leap, flip, and bear glowing cuspids amid a sea of black lights. The gym's festive approach to youth fitness occupies vacationing students during school breaks with summer camps, and birthday celebrants frequently gather in colourful private rooms for party packages that include equipment access and a T-shirt for the guest of honour.
