Kids need supervision. Especially tweens who are anxious to get a taste of adult life anyway they can. A day camp can be a lifesaver if you have kids going through this often difficult phase. They provide structure and supervision, but more than that they provide a positive, supportive environment where your son or daughter can be with other kids their age, learn valuable lessons and have fun.
Kids who join our martial arts day camp in Richmond Hill gain new experience, learn new skills and are able to cultivate new interests. They grow in ways they never would if left to their own devices and they learn lessons about responsibility, honesty and integrity: all characteristics that will serve them well going forward. Best of all, your child doesn’t need to have any previous martial arts experience to enjoy and benefit from our martial arts camp activities.
The MAT Centre Day Camp in Richmond Hill
While the emphasis is always on fun at our camps, kids also learn that martial arts can provide a useful blueprint for dealing with a complex and confusing world. Some who are resistant to input from other authority figures often respond positively to the guidance of a martial arts instructor, though all kids can benefit from what our camp has to offer them in the areas of:
- Listening Skills – Most kids could use at least some improvement in the area of listening while others could use a lot. In our camp they’re taught to value and cultivate this important skill by being shown how effective listening can make them better martial artists.
- Improved Focus – Our camps teach kids of all ages practical ways to clear their minds and focus on the task at hand. This ability is fundamental to martial arts, but also fundamental to the development of effective problem solving skills later in life.
- Increased Self-Esteem – One of the most gratifying aspects of running a martial arts day camp is watching shy kids come out of their shell and kids with low self-esteem grow in confidence day by day. If this were the job’s only reward it would be enough.
- Increased Self Control – An ability to remain within yourself regardless of what is going on around you is an invaluable tool for any person to have. Martial arts training received at our camp can help instil a level of discipline and self control in your child that will pay dividends in all aspects of their lives for years to come.
Everyone wants the best for their kids but the best way to get them off on the right foot in life is not always obvious.
