Adventure Camp – Multi Sports

Welcome to our TAC Adventure Camps!

TAC Adventure Camp is our premier physical literacy multi-sport program. Our dynamic and fun program covers popular group sports (soccer and basketball), individual sports (tennis, dance, and gymnastics), and basic martial arts and self-defense.

The daily activities include not only multi-sport training but other activities such as arts and crafts, storytime, camp songs, and low-organizational games where campers learn fundamental social and movement skills. Our program fosters creativity and imagination while building the foundation for future sports success.

All children registered in Adventure Camp must be potty trained.

 

“Physical literacy is just as important as the ability to read and write. The most important step toward developing physical literacy is mastering fundamental movement skills.”
