Cletus the Dragon has been following the local school situation, and decided that he and his favorite orange crayon had to find a way to help our community. Cletus formed a committee of dragons, local school teachers, Sterling Gym coaches, and community advisors who collaborated to put together a super-fun day camp at Sterling Gym for kids who are unable to attend their respective schools.
Welcome to Sterling's Pre-Academic Recreational Xperience. (SPARX)
It's going to be MORE FUN for your kids!
Little SPARX Camp is open to local kids ages 5-6, who are looking for an exciting day-camp option which will help prepare your child for grade school. Little SPARX Camp is NOT a part of any remote learning platforms, as it is a stand-alone camp experience incorporating elements of traditional kindergarten curriculums. This is a movement-based learning experience that keeps kids active and having fun while learning!
Camp will run by the week, Monday through Friday, 9 am to 3 pm. You are welcome to sign up for any number of days, weeks, or a full month at a time. Sibling and monthly discounts are available. The first week of little SPARX Camp will be Sept. 8.
Our ratio will be 6:1, with students spaced out more than 6 feet apart. This camp will take place primarily in our brand new Jungle Gym space, and also explore our other activity areas during parts of the day.
Little SPARX Camp will be run by Sterling Gym staff and EEC Certified Teachers.
