Children grow in confidence when they master a new skill. Resilience. Children learn to persist, compete graciously, and have fun. Children learn more when they are given regular opportunities to be active.
Kids learn: To COLLABORATE, cooperate, respect, listen, and share ideas. They learn about NURTRITION, road safety, decision-making, PEER PRESSURE, water safety, and more. In short, everything they need to lead a healthy, safe, and productive life.
