Our pool, waterslide, and outdoor zip line will NOT be open for Fall 2020 camps.
Cletus the Dragon has been following the local school situation, and decided that he and his favorite purple 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 remote learning zone at Sterling Gym for kids who are unable to attend their respective schools, while doing so in a safe, kid-friendly environment.
Welcome to Sterling's Technically Adaptable Remote-learning Zone. (STARZ)
It's going to be MORE FUN for your kids!
STARZ Camp is open to local kids ages 6+, (minimum of 1st grade) who are actively enrolled in a local school district's full-remote or hybrid learning platform.
Camp will run by the week, Monday through Friday, 9 am to 3 pm. You are welcome to sign up for any number of individual days, or weeks, or a full month at a time. Sibling and monthly discounts are available. The first week of STARZ Camp will be Sept. 14, unless school systems delay opening.
Our ratio will be 6:1, with students spaced out more than 6 feet apart. Each student will have their own desk and chair, power outlets, germ shield dividers, and Wi-Fi access. All electronic devices, including laptops, tablets, wired headphones, chargers, adapters, batteries, cords, etc, are the responsibility of the parent / guardian to provide. Sterling Gym will maintain a limited quantity of electronic devices for students to use in the event of gremlin attacks. Our staff will do their best to assist your child with access to e-learning platforms, however, gremlins have been known to make sneak attacks, and have been observed wearing highly advanced camouflage. Sterling Gym cannot guarantee 100% internet access uptime, since the internet was not really designed for millions of students to access e-learning platforms, while WFH parents are in zoom meetings, and netflix is streaming HD movies to millions of unemployed workers, all at the same time. What are the odds that the internet could crash in the year 2020?
STARZ Camp will be run by Sterling Gym staff and EEC Certified Teachers. Our staff will be acting solely as educational facilitators who assist with your child's technical needs, and help to keep kids on task. Sterling Gym coaches will also be on hand during all activity periods so your child can release some extra energy by taking advantage of our super fun gyms! Sterling Gym staff are NOT RESPONSIBLE for educational curriculum, assignments, testing, grades. etc. Our staff is limited to facilitating the process of your child's educational needs as provided by their respective school teachers. Our activity areas will be available throughout the day, for when your child is not required to be engaged with their remote learning platform, or has completed all necessary academic assignments.
Registration for STARZ Camp starts with submitting an application form, which can be printed and emailed back to us (photo on phone), or completed electronically and emailed to our front counter. Once accepted into the program, an orientation packet will be emailed to you with all the necessary forms to get your student enrolled. Please note that online registration is not available for this camp. Sterling Gym STARZ Camp directors will need to be able to communicate directly with your child's teacher, and all critical academic information will need to be shared between Sterling Gym staff and your child's school in order to maintain a functional and productive environment.
Children should also bring sneakers, and seasonally appropriate clothing to play outside, weather permitting. Please leave all jewelry and valuables at home!
