It’s no secret that an overload of studies and busy schedules cause students to neglect the gym during the semester. To help students achieve their fitness goals this summer, the High Plains Fitness Center is offering a variety of camps designed to “raise [students’] confidence and discover new abilities,” said fitness center coordinator, Amber Kavehkar.
The fitness camps are not limited to students alone. Parents can register their kids for camps to run off their youthful energy, and so that parent-students can find time to focus on school or work.
Kavehkar designed the summer camps with the community in mind, as they are not limited to only Front Range Community College students. Kids can play, and adults can grow. Youth groups (ages 8 through 12) focus on fun activities such as crafts and yoga. Whereas adults (ages 17 and up) can play team sports like basketball or study weight lifting techniques.
The camps occur three times this summer: June 6 through 23, June 27 through 30 or July 11 through 28. Prices for the public start at just 140 dollars. Plus, all High Plains Fitness Center members receive a discount when registering for the summer camps. While the cost is a big issue for most students, the fees are used to help cover the costs of the gym equipment coming to the fitness center in the future.
Those interested in a fun-filled summer at FRCC can stop by the fitness center and ask for a camp registration form.
