DULUTH, Ga., May 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academies, a national early childhood education franchise with three decades of experience, announced today its 2016 summer camp will focus on providing boys and girls with a global view of the 2016 Olympic Games. Campers, ages 5 to 12 years old, will experience an interactive peek inside participating countries' cultures, customs, cuisine and more. Each week at the Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy Summer Games, campers will learn about a different country that will be participating in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. Summer camp enrollment is currently open at Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academies across the country.
Youth development experts agree that children need a variety of experiences in their lives to help them grow into healthy adolescents and adults. According to the American Camp Association, the camp experience is uniquely positioned to provide all the developmental needs for children to cultivate positive behaviors. Camp helps children learn independence, decision-making, social and emotional skills, as well as character building and values – all in a friendly and active environment that fosters an atmosphere of creativity under positive adult role models.
"While summer can be a time for relaxation and rest, it's still very important that kids stay engaged during the summer and continue to develop through a variety of activities. With the Rio Olympics this year, it's the perfect theme to teach kids about cultures around the world while connecting them with a timely, worldwide event they can watch with their families," said David Vinson, chief executive officer, Kids 'R' Kids, Inc. "Our camp programs are designed to keep children occupied with safe, fun and educational activities when school is not in session. Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academies provide parents with peace of mind when school breaks don't coincide with busy schedules."
During the 10-week summer camp, kids will experience a unique twist on the games themselves, designed to instill confidence, encourage teamwork and foster fun. With a 30-year history of providing unforgettable summer camp experiences to children, Kids 'R' Kids combines physical activity, interactive learning and good old-fashioned fun in a way in which everyone wins. Each week, kids will focus on a different country, which include the United States, Greece, Brazil, Beijing, United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Mexico, South Africa and a final week of an exciting world tour around the globe. Campers will work together in the spirit of friendship during the 10-week day camp and will end the summer organizing their own games created from their imaginary trips around the globe.
Interested parents are invited to schedule an appointment with their local Kids 'R' Kids to tour the facility, meet the staff and learn more about the school's summer camp schedule and its flexible options for busy families with children from 5 to 12 years of age.
