Summer is nearly here! In just a few weeks the schools will be breaking up for summer. Here at the gym we're ready for you to start booking your classes and camps over the summer break so your little (or big) one can continue their Serious Fun at The Little Gym!

We have parent-child classes and lots of camps! Below are the links for both so you're able to find all the information you're looking for. As ever, if you have any questions or would like more information, call us on 12 264 9401 or 501 879 724 or email krakow@thelittlegym.eu and we'll be happy to help!

IF YOU BOOK THROUGHOUT THE MONTH OF JUNE WE'RE OFFERING A 10% DISCOUNT ON BOTH CLASSES AND CAMPS

You can download our Summer Schedule HERE and pick which days and times work best for you. You can also find more information (including prices) for Summer Camps HERE and for Parent-Child Classes HERE.

SUPER KIDS QUEST CAMPS 3-10 YEARS (4 hours)

Super Kids can join us on specially planned adventures combining lots of activity inside our purpose-built gym with arts and crafts. Children will be sailing Green Beards Pirate Ship, learning how to Hip-Hop Karate Chop, joining the Neat Ninja League and more. We provide a snack during the camp and children will be placed into age appropriate groups for the time in the gym. Why are TLG Camps so great for kids? Find out HERE.

CLASSES FOR CHILDREN 4 MONTHS - 3 YEARS

We have a few select Parent-Child classes running over the summer; especially for those not constrained to taking their annual holiday then and for those families wanting to continue their Serious Fun in July and August!


Why your kid needs Summer Camp

SC_Theme_Seas
Parents want their kids to have the best experiences possible. They want their children to be happy, healthy, and to find success. While there are many activities for kids to help your children achieve these life goals, enrolling them in summer camp programs can help. Summer camps for kids offer children a fun, nurturing environment where they are given opportunities to interact with positive role models, work together with their peers, develop creative skills, build independence and so much more. Check out these 5 benefits of summer camps for kids:

  1. Unplug from technology: Studies show that children spend a whopping 7.5 hours on average, per day engaging with technology. Camps provide children with technology-free hours where they are able to rediscover their creativity and engage with their peers.
  2. Promotes independence: Camps give children the opportunity to grow more independent, whether for a few hours, a day, or a week at a time. The separation from parents allows children to learn to rely on themselves, their peers, and others in a safe and secure environment.
  3. Engage in more physical activity: Kids spend so much time sitting at desks, on the couch, or at the kitchen table; summer camps provide children with physical activities for kids, a chance to have fun and get moving with their peers through running, jumping, climbing and more.
  4. Learn teamwork: Camps provide children with the unique opportunity to work together for a common goal; whether during a game or activity, kids are communicating, learning, and benefitting from one another.
  5. Builds self-confidence: By removing competitive activities and tasks, children are given the opportunity to gain new skills and accomplish tasks and experience success. This type of success is directly correlated to gaining self-esteem and self-confidence. 

Summer camps are a great way to provide children with the opportunities to gain important life skills to become happy, healthy and successful adults. To learn more about The Little Gym’s Summer Camp programs for kids 3-10 years visit HERE.

Build up your child’s GRIT with The Little Gym Krakow

P1030535

Parenthood used to be all about nurturing your child’s talents. And, of course, there is no parent in the world who would not describe his or her child as somehow gifted. Not only does it fill us with the sense of pride, but also makes us confident that our daughter or son will grow up to be a successful adult who might, perhaps, accomplish something important.

The problem is that an increasing number of scientific studies show that there is no significant correlation between talent and success in adult life.

In her recently published book, Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance, a renowned American psychologist Angela Duckworth points to a single character trait that is a much better indicator of a child’s future success. It is grit, which is a combination of passion, resilience, determination, and focus that allows a person to maintain the discipline and optimism to persevere in their goals.

Why The Little Gym Krakow is a good place to develop GRIT?

It is because, even before that buzzword gained popularity, the very same concept had been part of the The Little Gym philosophy. The playful gymnastics activities we organize for children are designed to boost their self-confidence and resilience, but also to help them understand that a failure is okay – provided that you try again. Our enthusiastic and committed instructors will always be there for your child – motivating and tutoring until your child builds up the determination to accomplish his or her goal. At The Little Gym Krakow we do not just make kids fitter – we give them tools to be successful as teenagers and adults.

Please visit our The Little Gym in Krakow and see what we can do to install some GRIT in your child.
