Urban Air & Snapology launch Camp Urbie Adventure Camp
Urban Air Adventure Park has announced it is joining forces with Snapology to give children the opportunity to ‘learn through play’ with enriching, interactive STEAM and STEM programs at selected Urban Air parks, starting June 2021.
In between jumping to new heights on trampolines and testing out their agility on a number of confidence-building attractions, Camp Urbie will introduce hands-on STEAM (Science, Technology, Reading, Arts and Mathematics) activities to younger guests, executed by Snapology-trained professionals.
The 10-week program will see participants engage in planned Snapology courses and “brain breaks”. From Space Wars Robotics and the Science of Superpowers to video game design, drones and even combat robots, every themed week at Camp Urbie provides one-of-a-kind hands-on learning experiences that are geared towards sparking interest and creativity through robotics, animation, engineering, play and interactive learning.
“Our mission is to positively impact the lives of every kid by providing fun, engaging and inspiring experiences that help them spread their wings and achieve things they might not otherwise think they could,” said Michael Browning, CEO at Urban Air. “By joining forces with Snapology this summer, we’ll be able to do just that by providing children across the country with the opportunity to continue to learn and grow when they’re out of school. We’re thrilled to be implementing Snapology curriculum in Camp Urbie and know it’s just the beginning of an incredible partnership that’s going to make a lasting and fun impression on kids’ lives.”
Children ages seven and up can sign up for the program and will be broken up into groups based on skill-level, grade and age. From using objects and toys in unfamiliar ways to personalized learning through fun themes (e.g., animals, space, cartoons, etc.), Snapology focuses on improving social skills through partnerships and teamwork, improving gross and fine motor skills, and allowing children to explore and learn at their own pace.
