Looking for a summer program to keep your kids active while keeping their minds stimulated? Our summer program incorporates science, mythology, traditional kung fu and lion dance everyday!

Children will be immersed in traditional cultural kung fu and lion dance class in the morning. This is where they will build discipline, learn how to control and move their body, and build physical and mental strength. In addition, there will be a lot of team building with their peers with a lot of fun group activites. These group activities will be both indoor and outdoor in different environments. We will plan small local adventures and your child will have plenty of time to enjoy the summer season while strengthening and building their mind, body and spirit!

Later in the day, children will explore how science and mythology make sense of the Natural world. They will enjoy solving design challenges and sharing their understanding of how Nature works. Children will meet real animals and mythological ones.

Our summer camp is lead by Mr. Springer who is an experienced elementary school teacher teaching science in the Newton Public Schools for many years and now teaches Pre K to 5th grade in Boston Public Schools, with him are Hung Gar Kung Fu and Lion Dance Academy instructors who will serve as the summer program counselors.

This time is set for the students to go enjoy the great outdoors or spend sometimes bonding with the other children over a fun game or activity. Some days we will go on a local adventure and see what we can find in our beautiful city of Quincy. As long as the weather is nice we will do our best to get your kids out into nature and have some fun. Whether it's exploring the local creek, library, or play ground this time is designiated for your child to enjoy the summer!

 

If budget and time permits, we may go to further places to explore. Such as a state park, local pool, aquarium or zoo! We want to do our best to make sure your children get an experience that is truly memorable!

Planning and Sharing Time
Planning and Sharing Time is when we plan for or recap the entire day, so everyone is on the same page. It is also an opportunity for children to share parts of the day they especially enjoyed or the accomplishments they made. This time fosters unity and friendship as a group.
Kung Fu and Lion Dance Training
Your children are immersed in a rich cultural and traditional experience learning kung fu and lion dance. While kung fu and lion dance are fun, exciting, and dynamic activities, little will they know they will learn much more than just that. Here they will learn how to move their bodies accurately and control and balance their movements and strength. They will build self-confidence and discipline while fostering bonds with their peers. There will be group activities where they will work on teamwork, respect, and learn to be selfless. They will learn self and team perseverance. Kung fu and lion dance works to strengthen one's mind, body, and spirit, while, hopefully, creating life long friendships.
Theme Study
Your children will be discovering mythological creatures and exploring natural sciences. Filled with visuals and interactive, engaging activities such as creating their own ecosystems, designing a Mars base, or maybe even having the opportunity to meet a Leopard Gecko, there are exciting activities throughout every week. Our teacher, Mr. Springer, has been teaching for many years in Newton and Boston Public Schools, and his lessons incorporate STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) Learning. He is always striving to provide the students with an entertaining, engaging, and educational Theme Study every time.
