What Age Kids Do We Work With?

Our winter break camp for kids is ideal for boys and girls ages 6 to 14 years old. We offer a unique blend of learning and growth combined with adventure, games, and fun. When it comes to holiday camps,  we often place kids of mixed ages in one or two groups. Encouraging the older participants to lead, and the younger ones to get an example to look up to.

We believe this nurtures strong teamwork whereby kids and their peers of all ages negotiate their strengths and weaknesses to join together and complete challenges. Hot Ground Gym’s winter sports camps make kids participate jointly to overcome their fears and achieve a sense of communal accomplishment. No matter their age, we guarantee they’ll have a great time, spend time making new friends, and want to return for more.

My son loves the classes and was sooo looking forward to winter camp. It exceeded his expectations!! While he had a blast, as a mom i appreciate the balance of fun, challenging activities (the “missions”) with team-building exercises, self-defense training, and character building.

My Daughter loves this place. She has learned so many new skills and good things from this place. They teach them so much more than obstacle courses they teach them team work and respect. The winter camp was awesome she loved expending time with the coaches and new friends. We will be doing more camps for sure. Thank you Hot Grounds you are awesome!!!

FAQ About Our Winter Day Camps

What happens during the winter break camp day?

Unlike at school, camp is the perfect opportunity for kids to exercise and play all day long, all while still learning and developing their interpersonal and communication skills. Campers will spend time on obstacle courses, playing games, and using their brains and their bodies to solve problems.

What gear does my camper need for winter camp?

All your child to join in at camp is socks and sneakers, a water bottle, and a great attitude! Children of any age can participate in our activities, getting exercise over the holidays outside of the usual school sports.

How do I sign up for your Chicago winter day camp?

You can register your child here. There is a maximum capacity that we adhere to so that kids receive the attention they need. It’s advisable to book as soon as you can because all spots are first-come-first-served.
