Our boot camp for youth ages 6-12 mimics an adult boot camp experience — warm up, stretching, group activities and partner work — at a level that is appropriate and fun for kids. CSF’s youth boot camp incorporates full body cardiovascular and strength workouts and fitness education in a team atmosphere that encourages motivation and discipline. Your young Boot Camper will have the opportunity to work on building endurance, muscle, coordination, and balance – key ingredients for success in sports they may participate in and for overall good health.
