9 Reasons To Try Thanksgiving Camp
When students are out of school for Thanksgiving break, oftentimes parents still have to work. KidzToPros Thanksgiving Camp can help! Our camps keep kids happy, healthy and learning while schools are closed to celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday.
Holiday Camps bring together popular programs, a safe environment, and professional instructors. Kids build skills while having fun with a mix of STEM, Sports and Arts activities.
Parents can work better knowing their kids are exercising their minds and bodies. A blend of activities also ignites creativity. Each day includes a variety of ways to keep kids happy and safe while school is out.
This includes STEM favorites like Minecraft and LEGO robotics as well as sports like basketball. Arts programs teach origami among other mediums. Campers have a blast, making new friends while learning outside the classroom in a way that’s stress-free and fun.
Here are 9 reasons to try one of these camps this Thanksgiving.
1. STEM, Sports and Arts programs you can’t get in school
Schools have curriculum goals that can’t possibly include everything kids need to succeed in a tech-driven future. As school districts also cut back on sports and arts, parents are understandably worried.
Our popular Thanksgiving Camp provides kids with those subjects.
Each day brings an engaging set of topics and games, specific to each age group, taught by KidzToPros’ professional and passionate instructors. Campers get plenty of exercise. They also explore their creative side. A well-rounded curriculum promotes critical thinking and vital tech skills.
This is all possible while broadening their world view and introducing a diverse new set of friends. Specifically, campers enjoy:
- Coding and robotics skills that provide lifelong value.
- Play It All! Sports where they play soccer, basketball, tennis and more.
- Creative drawing, painting in watercolors and mastering the art of origami.
2. Top-notch staff
KidzToPros takes incredible pride in hiring experienced teachers. Our instructors and coaches, along with program managers and curriculum developers, have backgrounds as educators and subject-matter experts
They are also strong leaders and role models.

5. Popular courses
KidzToPros combines the latest STEM technology with sports and arts to keep kids challenged and inspired. Our fun curriculum produces well-rounded students. Parents are clear about this priority, so we made it our mission to keep kids engaged in enrichment activities that provide a solid foundation and lead to lifelong learning.
We consistently hear praise about STEM subjects like LEGO robotics and Minecraft coding. Kids learn more when they’re having fun and this includes programming. Our camp also prepares students for a future in a high-tech world. We engage young learners with a customized path that starts with beginning robotics, coding and circuitry. Campers later move to advanced courses in game design, machine learning and electronics.
This keeps everyone engaged.
It’s also important to provide physical activity. Children need daily exercise. KidzToPros teaches the fundamentals of popular sports like tennis, soccer and basketball. Whether your kids want to blow off steam or perfect certain skills – we’ve got them covered.
We also emphasize mindful play, leadership, teamwork and respect for others.
Our visual and performing arts programs provide an outlet for young artists to express themselves. Let them explore unique ideas. Kids discover who they are through the act of bringing imagined ideas to life. Our curriculum also encourages imaginative thinking and inspires students to look at the world from new perspectives.
6. Kids learn while having fun
Kids learn more when they’re enjoying the process.
Due to an emphasis on testing, too many students equate learning with boredom. Multiple studies show that knowledge gained from fun and worthwhile activities stays with the learners for longer periods of time.
Our Thanksgiving camp provides that kind of atmosphere every day.
7. Safety is a priority
We take every precaution to ensure the health and safety of our campers and staff. In accordance with county guidelines, campers and staff are required to wear face masks and follow social distancing guidelines.
8. Thanksgiving Camp is a stress-free environment
Our KidzToPros staff encourages children in ways that are fun and stimulating. This allows them to explore interesting topics in a pressure-free environment.
Learning new skills, or perfecting old ones, doesn’t have to be difficult. Children can enjoy and challenge themselves at the same time. They do this participating in activities that require critical thinking, questioning, analysis, and curiosity.
