If you have a preschooler who’s looking for an energy busting day of movement and learning, you need to check out BumbleBee Camp. BumbleBee Camp is a clever alternative to the typical preschool setting where learning and motion are combined.
Students at BumbleBee Camp participate in mobility based learning, offered Monday-Friday for Fall and Winter/Spring sessions. Parents can sign up students for as many days as they like with pricing based on registration.
We LOVE the bumblebee program! We have two children in the class and every week all they rave about is going back to gymnastics class. Not only does the class tie in a school-based curriculum, but they have also noticeably boosted their confidence levels on the equipment and overall social interactions with other children and adults. “10 thumbs up” as my son says.
WHY BumbleBee Camp? Studies show that gymnastics-related activities accelerate and enhance the skills necessary for kindergarten and elementary school. Forward, backward, and lateral movement promote reading and writing readiness. Through play our BumbleBees will develop an awareness of letters, numbers and colors. At GRG your child will develop fine motor skills, gross motor skills, flexibility, strength, agility and balance through our activity based program. In addition, they will gain social skills such as taking turns, sharing and rotation from one task to another which will further aid your child/children in preparing for their school-age adventures.
PARENT ON-SITE…Due to State Guidelines for ages 3-4yrs we are required to have a parent representative on-site. This does not mean one parent of each child. It means one parent representative for all children. The “parent” could be a grandparent, a friend, a nanny, etc.
We ask for a minimum of one day of volunteer time for each day your child is with us per semester. (ie. if your child is with us for 2 days/week, we ask for 2 volunteer days from you per semester). We understand that not all parents are able to fulfill their spots requested, please let us know and we will assist in filling spots needed. If you are interested and available, you may sign up for as many days as you like. You may use this time to do work in the lobby, use your personal membership at Snap Fitness, relax in your vehicle, etc.
“Putting my kiddo in the Bumblebee program has been one of the best things I’ve done for him. His social skills have blossomed and he comes back every day learning something new. He’s excited to go every morning and I love how much energy he gets out while he’s there! “
