Do you know what the vestibular system is? The vestibular system is an important part of your child’s body, and everyone’s! The vestibular system is the sensory system that provides the sense of balance and spatial orientation for coordinating movement and balance. This system is located behind the ears and helps children with brain information about where they are in regards to spacing. Up, down, and sideways!
Understanding where we are in space allows us to keep our balance and move smoothly. At Northern Hemisphere our summer camps in Rochester, NY are a great way to help your child’s coordination development.
At Northern Hemisphere Gym we offer 3 different summer camps in Rochester, NY. Choose from Preschool Adventure Camp (children aged 4-7), Adventure Camp (children 6+), or Gymnastics Camp (children 6+).
Adventure Camp is designed for children starting at age 6 and the program runs from 9:00am-4:00pm, Monday through Friday. We introduce your kids to indoor gymnastics, ninja warrior events, archery, ropes course, zip lines, kayaking, slip n’ slides and more.
For children ages 4 to 6 we have created a similar program to the Adventure Camp, Preschool Adventure Camp, which runs Monday thru Friday from 9:30am to 12:00pm. This camp provides indoor gymnastics, ninja warrior, ropes course, zip lines, slip n’ slides and canoe rides.
Gymnastics Camp is designed a little different than our Adventure Camps and focuses solely on gymnastics rather than other activities. This camp is for children ages 6 and older.
Summer camps can be great for children for several reasons. At our summer camps in Rochester, NY children become a part of a special community that promotes physical activity and fun all in one. Children are known to find confidence and independence as they are learning new skills and summer camps are great for children to meet new friends they may not go to school with. Furthermore, summer camp in Rochester, NY is a phenomenal way to build up a child’s vestibular system!
