WHAT OUR DAY CAMP OFFERS

15+ DIFFERENT ACTIVITIES

Our principal languages of instruction are Arabic and English, but your child or teen will also be introduced to basic Spanish with classes taught by professional instructors from Instituto de Cervantes. Activities on-site include football (classic, bubble & soap), Bootcamp (laser tag, archery, paintball, jiujitsu), volleyball, cooking, art, sports medicine and dance (Zumba, Dabke). We also have weekly field trips for off-site activities like basketball, horseback riding, climbing, trampoline (Jump Park), karting (ages 9+) and gardening. The last Saturday morning in each session, parents are invited to attend camp with their children for the Parent-Child Tournament and activities day.

MEALS

One of the core values we hope to promote and develop is healthy living. Because of this, we are placing a high importance on the meals and have worked with a certified nutritionist to design a specific meal plan for each age group at the summer camp.

The meal plan, which includes a morning snack and a hot lunch, is based on the calorie requirements of each age group and will ensure that all the children receive a healthy, balanced diet during their time at the summer camp which will in turn energize them and add more value to the activities they are performing.

OPTIONAL TRANSPORTATION & LAUNDRY SERVICE

To make your life, as the parent, as easy as possible, we also offer optional door-to-door transportation (15 JD/week) and laundry services (5 JD/week).

SAFETY & SECURITY

The Zone (sports complex where 6 Yard and Blu Tactical are located) is extremely secure and safe. On-site, we have cameras that you, as the parent/guardian, can access at any time using an app (password restricted) on your mobile phone. A trained medic and security guards will be present at all hours during the summer camp. Children will not be allowed to leave the premises unless their pre-approved parent or guardian pick them up. Written permission and a phone call is required for the child to leave with someone other than the pre-approved parent or guardian. During off-site activities, children will be accompanied at all times by trained staff.
