Currently -6 Fahrenheit in the Twin Cities .
Rather than delaying the inevitable - usually this type of post is for Tax Time/Spring Time - I wanted to provide new and current family customers with why we feel AKA Summer Camps are for your kids! Check out what we’ve come up with below and if you have any other reasons for choosing AKA or Summer Camps in general, please feel free to chime in.
Thinking Summer… 10 reasons to choose AKA this Summer!
Variety of Sports & Activities. That’s what we do. Each week promotes a different sport theme. Loaded with plenty of technical training, games and skills competitions, the goal is to get kids to learn and find greater passion for their favorite sports. Of course we add a variety of other games in the morning and afternoons to fill their day and week.
Archery, Badminton, Baseball, Basketball, Bicycling, Canoeing, Cricket, Dodgeball, Fishing, Football, Golf, Gymnastics, Handball, Hockey, Ice Sports, Kickball, Lacrosse, Ninja, Pickleball, Soccer, Softball, Swimming, Tennis, Track & Field, Volleyball….what did we miss?!
New this year…
**More carved out time for more reading, board games, creative games, arts, crafts and special projects.
**Elite Feature. Kids seeking more elite/advanced level training will indicate that before the week starts and we will group them in Elite Camper groups for that particular sport. More information once you register!
Flexibility / Structure of AKA Summer Programming.
Full summer or individual weeks registration acceptable.
Aside from not providing drop in days or shortened week system, we are flexible with everything else. Need to drop off later or pickup early, easy. Need us to transport your kid to another program on Campus, not a problem. Prefer to select individual weeks instead of the full summer… that’s what we do! In full, AKA is a full day operation as doors open at 7:00am and close at 6:00pm.
New this Year…
** Individual Week payments can be broken up with a payment plan. All that is required at the time of registration is the deposit.
Field Trips - Everyone’s Favorite! Well next to Free Time

Social Element - (Boss’s everyday plug)
Sports are life for many of us. But it is the social element in sport that makes us well rounded as individuals, young and old. Rather than sit alone staring at the tv/computer or relying solely on electronic devices… get out and get social with AKASPORT and everyone involved!
Bonus : Wearing Kids Out for 15 Years! ;) Full Day Workout.
Don’t get me wrong, rest is vital and we encourage rest and reading throughout. But the best youth training is the most physically exhausting!
