Most of my readers are aware of my passion to help children focus on their health.
I want all children to be active, eat healthy and take care of their heart.
When I had the opportunity to focus this post on our Houston area Camp Spark locations/camps, I jumped at the chance to feature an organization willing to put your kids health as a priority!
Being a former PE teacher I always found it frustrating that so many children do not get outside and play. They aren't involved in sports, are unaware of the fun times that can be had outdoors and with friends. They need to learn the importance of working together as a team, set individual goals and to have FUN while taking care of their bodies.
Camp Spark seems to focus on ALL OF THE ABOVE and that makes me smile.
What is it?
Camp Spark is a successful summer sports camp that started in Dallas 2010, in a backyard. They have now expanded to locations all over the country.
Camp Spark employs over 100 high school students and helped over 500 campers nationwide.
They are unique because the camp is FOR kids and run BY kids!
SPARK stands for Strong, Powerful, Athletic Rockin Kids
The camps are for kids ages 5-13 and they focus on healthy living, being active and having fun.
Founders Ryan and Blake Lieberman attended sports camps as kids and were turned off by the strict instruction from adults so they decided to create a fun environment and the camp is run by high school athletes that are passionate about sports and practice good sportsmanship creating a positive atmosphere for the campers keeping things organized yet flexible.
Kids are able to sign up for one week, two weeks, or by the day. They will work with kids their age and activities will include SparkSports basketball, soccer, football, wiffleball, lacrosse, swimming and many others for boys. Girls will include SparkSports, arts and crafts, swimming, dancing, soccer and cheerleading. Certified lifeguard at all times and one staff member to six campers keeping things organized and safe for the children.
