Balls of Fun’s Mission Statement
Our goal is to provide children with an environment that fosters essential physical and social development skills. When these skills are nurtured and practiced, children gain self-awareness and confidence to succeed during play and sport. Moreover, an enthusiasm for physical activity, created by learning necessary ball skills, encourages a healthy lifestyle.
Being Active + Being Together = Balls of Fun Inc.
The summer camp curriculum is comprised of 84 main gym activities. There are also over 50 different warm-up activities and over 50 different cool-down activities. Each week the camp activities vary (including the warm-ups and cool-downs). There will be 10 warm-up activities, 16 main gym activities, and 10 cool-down activities each week. We have incorporated the best gym activities to create the Ultimate Gym Camp Curriculum!
Balls of Fun Camp also encourages children to express their opinion about the gym activities. At the close of each camp day, the children vote on their favourite gym activity from the four main activities played that day. The group’s favourite activity is then played and practiced again on the last day of camp. The gym curriculum activities (ball or no ball) are designed to get children moving, thinking, and communicating together. Moreover, we want your child to enjoy participating in physical activity at the Balls of Fun Camp and throughout life.
