Weather Alert: Due to inclement weather, program schedules may change. View updated schedules.

Motivate your kids to stay active with our summer camps!

For the first time in what feels like an eternity, the sun is out in the St. Louis metro area. After a cold and rainy April, it finally feels like spring. Now you can get the kids out of the house and encourage them to be active, to put down the tablet and burn some calories. Nice weather and fun outdoor activities let a kid truly be a kid.

As school is winding down, we know that summer vacation is fast approaching. A calendar can’t tell you when summer is truly here, and neither can looking out the window. No, the one sure-fire way to know that summer is here is when you here I’m bored. It’s an inevitable, annoying fact of summer life.

Physical activity is crucial to good health, and the CDC recommends that children get 60 minutes of exercise daily. It can be hard to motivate kids to do so, especially in a technologically driven world full of digital distractions. How can you get them to exercise? Force them? Negotiate?

By far the most effective way is to make exercise fun.

Vetta Sports has been holding summer camps in the St. Louis area for over 25 years and every year our camps get bigger and better. We have all the best parts of gym class like soccer, basketball, tennis, racquetball, kickball in our state-of-the-art indoor facilities. What’s more, we have the kind of fun activities your kids can’t get in gym class like inflatables.

Summer camp is about more than just physical activity, though. Variety is the spice of life, and our camps have other fun activities like arts and crafts as well as field trips and the reptile experience. Summer camp is also a crucial time of social development for kids. Many, many kids make summer camp friendships that form lifelong bonds. They make fond memories that will last with them into adulthood. We have team building and creative group activities that are perfect for social development and encourage friend-making.

Simply put, we play sports and we have fun. That’s what summer, and being a kid, is all about.

We have locations all around the St. Louis metro area including Concord (South County), Manchester (West County), St. Charles, and Soccerdome (Webster Groves). To learn more about a location near you and what they have to offer, or for directions, visit our locations page.
