What Age Kids Do We Work With?

Our winter break camps are ideal for boys and girls aged 7 to 14-years-old. We offer a unique blend of learning and growth combined with adventure and fun. When it comes to holiday camps, we don’t discriminate against age and place kids of mixed ages in one group, encouraging the older participants to lead.

We believe this nurtures strong teamwork whereby kids and their peers negotiate their strengths and weaknesses to complete challenges. Hot Ground Gym’s winter sports camps make kids work together to overcome their fears and achieve a sense of communal accomplishment. No matter their age, we guarantee they’ll have a great time 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!!!
