We have booked a talented, diverse group of guest speakers for full day summer camps this year. We will feature one guest workshop each week during camp weeks 2-10. Read all about the guest speakers here on our blog!

For the second year we are asking for parent experts (and we use this term very, very loosely!) to join us at Jump Summer Camps and host a one hour workshop for our campers.
Last summer guest workshops included: pet first aid, nutrition, music, seeds, composting, photography & health and body care. The workshops were a huge success and many kids (and coaches) are still talking about them today!
I suggest taking a simple movement that your child can do independently- like walking or jumping. And then add what we call ‘super challenges’ as a way to encourage your child to explore this movement skill.
I recalled being the last to be picked for sports teams and remembered years of football (UK kid here) where I did everything I could to avoid the ball. Jennifer explained that my experiences were not uncommon and likely the result of not being taught some fundamental skills.
