Kids Sports

Kids Skill Development programs are designed to help kids & youth increase their knowledge about a specific activity while building on skills in a small group setting.  We offer a range of Kids Sport Programming that may include Rock Climbing, Learn to Skate & Wrestling which will be facilitated by University of Guelph students who excel in their sport and wish to assist kids & youth in their development.  For some sports, Varsity Coaches will be in attendance to help guide and facilitate programming.  These multi-week programs are a great opportunity for physical activity with focus placed on strengthening skills to ensure all participants are challenged.  As participants' skills improve in this fun environment, they will begin to recognize their own personal growth as they work through weekly goals.

Discover Rock Climbing | Ages 8-12

Rock Climbing offers a unique environment for children to explore and become more aware of how their bodies move on the rock wall as they progress through bouldering, harnessing, belaying, and then conquering top rope climbing. They will be inspired to set goals and develop teamwork skills as they learn proper safety & rock-climbing techniques. Participants will be grouped according to their climbing exposure and the program will culminate with a friendly finale challenge to put new skills to the test. All equipment is provided. *Registration ends 2 days prior to the start date.

GIRLS AT BAT

This past summer, Gryphon Kids & Camps partnered with Jays Care Foundation to offer the Girls at Bat Program.  The 8-week program was designed to engage female-identifying girls new to baseball who most often sit on the sidelines.  We hope to have the privilege of offering this program again in the future.
