Fun-Filled Camp Program Teaches Life Lessons
This summer, don't leave your child in a camp to get "baby sat."
Instead, enroll them in a camp where they can have the learning
experience of a lifetime!
The Summer Day Camp Program at Lloyd Irvin's Martial Arts Academy
offers a fun and exciting summer full of activities to help your
child grow mentally, physically and spiritually. "We believe that
children hold the future in their grasp," says Lloyd Irvin, owner
of the Academy. "Someone just has to show them how to open their
fingers and look at it!"
Not only will children ages 5 to 13 be involved in the area's
most dynamic Junior Martial Arts program, they will also participate
in a wide variety of fun-filled trips and activities, including:
- Weekly Pool Visits
- Weekly Six Flag Trips
- Weekly "Fun" Trips such as: Bowling, Museums, Chuck E. Cheese,
Jeepers, Laser Tag
- Arts & Crafts
Along with these activities include in-school activities that
build character, confidence, self-esteem and teach valuable life
lessons. These include:
- Academic Re-Enforcement Exercises
- Stranger Danger
- Nationally Recognized Anger Management and Conflict Resolution
Martial Arts lessons are given on a daily basis. These Thai
Jitsu classes increase physical fitness, coordination and agility,
while promoting self-control, self-discipline and respect for
others. Children are taught the meaning of responsibility and
how it affects all areas of their lives. "By the end of camp,
parents see a huge difference in their children," says Lloyd.
This new level of confidence carries over to personal, social
and scholastic aspects of the child's life. "At the beginning
of classes, 46% of the kids were honor roll students. By the end
of the session, the number rose to 78%", says Lloyd.
All martial arts students are encouraged to reach a certain
goal and participate in a test promotion. In this way, children
will see the relationship between hard work and success. A belt
ceremony at the end of camp gives children a true sense of pride
If you thought martial arts was mainly for boys, think again!
Girls love this camp, and especially enjoy the arts and crafts,
dance and gymnastics. The martial arts gives them a new level
of power and self-confidence, so important in young girls.
The facility is state-of-the-art, one of the finest on the East
Coast. The floors are fully padded with Olympic-quality mats and
equipment, so children can train to their full potential without
fear of injury. For your convenience, camp times and prices are
favorable to local daycare facilities. Camp hours are 8:30 to
4:30, with extended care available from 6:30 to 8:30 am and 4:30
to 6:30 pm.
During the school year, the facility offers a variety of classes
including children's Karate classes for ages 4 and up, and Kick
'n Fit aerobic kickboxing classes for those wanting to lose weight
and tone up. Call for more information on these and other programs.
