Sportscamp is a dynamic program for children to enjoy all year long. Whether they attend in the summer, winter or both, your children have the opportunity to experience fulfilling extracurricular activity. Our program allows children to play with others their own age and participate in many activities they may otherwise not be able to experience. With gymnastics activities and the use of our giant indoor climbing wall, as well as exploring different Anchorage businesses and sights on Field Trips, your child is sure to have an enjoyable time here at AGA.
During the Summer students take gymnastics classes in the morning. A variety of activities are offered in the afternoons including going to the park for outside activities. The following is a brief list of activities the children may participate in.
Gymnastics builds upper body strength and coordination. The students receive physical training on the tumbling floor, bars, beams, vault and trampoline.
Painting, drawing, coloring, gluing and cutting. These are enjoyed by all of the children. Each child is encouraged to be creative. Students make play dough, collages, crafts, mobiles, puppets and many other projects.
Our outdoor activities Involve relays, ball games, circle games, playing at the park and many others.
Field Trips are a fun way for the children to explore and learn about the world around them. Sign up sheets are at the front counter; the monthly calendar lists major field trips which include museums, bowling, Alaska Zoo, swimming and many other activities.
Field trips and neighborhood walks are periodically held. During the Summer, the students may walk to Willow Crest Elementary School playground to play supervised games on the playground equipment. AGA plans occasional field trips (parents notified in advance), and will provide transportation from AGA to the field trip destination and back to AGA. The transportation system may be via the club van (insured), bus or a public transit system. There may be a charge for each child plus the cost of the event. Permission to participate may be granted by signing the registration form.
AGA does not use television or video game viewing as a regular part of its curriculum. A video is sometimes shown on "Fun Friday". All movies or films are G rated. Educational films for learning skills will be used occasionally.
During the school year, our Sports Camp is held Monday through Friday from the time your child arrives after school until 6:00 p.m. We pick children up from over twenty schools in the Anchorage District. Children up to 13 years old are accepted. The activities they may participate in can include rock climbing, arts and crafts, ping pong and various indoor sports, playing outside in the snow, playing in the gym/gymnastics, puzzles, games, science exploratory and occasionally watching a G rated video.
