Kids Spring Camp at Sunnyvale and San Jose locations!

Spring break is just around the corner!

The Smash Gyms Kids Spring Camp is an enriching week designed to stimulate, educate, and simply have fun. Each day, the directors and instructors of the camp will have your child delving into activities themed around art, culture, environment, and history. Even subjects like reading, writing, science, and math will be covered in an enjoyable and entertaining manner. And unlike regular school, our creative activities won’t have the kids sitting at a desk the entire day!

In addition to activities that will invigorate their minds and bodies, the Smash Gyms Kids Spring Camp will also have the children engage in physical play that is needed by all children. Through martial arts, games, and sports the kids will burn energy and improve their overall fitness. In addition the children will learn proper socialization, teamwork, and sportsmanship skills.

We know your child will have so much fun that they will be begging not to leave!

Both Smash Gyms locations will be offering spring camp for children 5 – 10 years old.

Sunnyvale Spring Camp: April 14 – 18

San Jose Spring Camp:  April 21 – 25

On top of all the great activities for kids, Smash Gyms Camps are one of the most affordable choices with both half and full day options.

Half Day: $150/week

Full Day: $250/week
