Summer Camp Reimagined with LVMA & ALC

Remember the days when kids at summer camp spent most of their time outside, running around, playing games, making arts and crafts, swimming in the pool, and going on field trips?  We do too! And that is why LVMA and our childcare centers, Active Learning Centers, have teamed up for summer camp experience full of fun.

How summer camp all began

Our summer camp was born out of our martial arts program.  It began 1999, when parents asked if we could take their children for the summer and continue to teach them the core values of martial arts that not only included structure, but fun. And with that, the success of that first summer set into motion many summer camp experiences for years to come at each of our LVMA locations. Summer camp was so popular that parents convinced us to keep it all year round… and THAT is how Active Learning Centers was born!

How our summer camp is different

Like in our martial arts classes throughout the year, character building is the heart of all our activities… all while the kids just think they're having fun. Each week we help the children develop a specific leadership quality through exciting activities and adventures that are built into a weekly theme. The kids learn self-defense, self-discipline and respect, while building confidence.  Every morning, the children participate in a martial arts class.  They work on developing skills to become stronger in body, mind and character.

What will the campers experience each week?
We go all out for our summer camp!

  • Each week has a different theme and these themes are based upon leadership qualities. The activities of the week are designed to teach, encourage and develop those traits in the children.
  • Pool time. We'll send them home nice and tired. But no reason to worry about safety. We have an excellent staff-to-child ratio that exceeds state requirements.  We even send along our own life guard!
  • We meet all state standards and regulations on ratios and even exceed them when we feel it necessary. We even have the children in colored shirts to make them easy to see.
  • Martial arts. Our unique blend of all the positive traits that martial arts encourages makes this a one-of-a-kind program.
  • From listening skills and problem solving, to courage and communication, this will be the most beneficial and fun camp your child will ever find!
