Jump Rope Summer Camp 2020
JOIN ROPEWORKS THIS SUMMER FOR OUR FUN-FILLED
JUMP ROPE CAMPS 2020
Each of our specialized camps are directed and taught by Rene Bibaud – Ropeworks owner and creator, using her highly acclaimed approach to skill development and growth mindset providing participants a personal, high quality experience focused on the whole child.
Our camps are designed for kids aged 7 -14. We work on single rope skills, partner routines, long rope and double dutch jumping. Each person is challenged at their own skill level, and camp is open to kids of any skill level – from beginners to members of jump rope teams.
Athletes learn to build skills in a success-oriented, scaffolding approach and offers each individual tools to continually push skill development. We offer a ton of games to build coordination, timing, foot speed and endurance while maintaining a balance of a fun summer time activity kids will rave about for years to come!
Age range: 7 -14
3 hours per day
Some locations offer extended day or wrap around care
We perform for family at the conclusion of camp.

WHY JUMP ROPE?
Jumping rope is an excellent exercise for cardiovascular fitness, muscular endurance and coordination. Now researchers are learning that physical activity like jumping rope also prepares the brain for optimal learning too. So, it’s great for the mind, the body and the soul!
Current brain research supports the need for movement in the learning process. Here are just a few ways that jumping rope may help prepare the brain for learning.
