Your Child’s Summer Camp Plans – DONE!

Looking for something fun and new for your child to do this summer? Or maybe you’re looking for something for all of your kids to do, but doesn’t require you playing chauffeur all day long, dropping kids off at different locations for activities. (Sometimes it seems like summer is just as busy and hectic as the school year, doesn’t it?)

R-Athletics is redefining what “summer camp” means with their whopping 25 different action-packed camps! Offered all summer long, with morning and afternoon options, your child will go beyond the balance beam to explore the interests and activities that they love.

Got a dare devil at home? There’s an R-Athletics camp for that. How about a child who loves magic tricks? There’s a camp for that too! Whether your child loves splashing in the water or learning new ninja moves, getting dressed up or getting pumped up, they’ll have a summer to remember at R-Athletics!

Read on to learn more about R-Athletics and its eight jam-packed weeks of themed summer camps!
