Kid’s Camps & Events
ONE DAY FIT KID CAMPS, (6-12yrs)
POW! offers active Fit Kid One-Day Camps. These day-camps are held on days when the Chicago Public Schools are closed. This includes federal holidays, report-card pick ups and even during strikes. This day is filled with structure. The kids will participate in a wide range of running, fitness and sports games. Please send your child with: lunch, snacks, water bottle, homework/book and gym shoes. Make sure your child is dressed appropriately for the outdoors if we decide to go to Skinner Park.

WEEK-LONG SUMMER CAMPS, (7-12YRS)
Our camp will build the athletic skills of each child. We will play a wide array of fitness games. We will teach the kids about fitness and healthy living concepts. Camps intend to include outdoor time (weather permitting). Please make sure your kids come appropriately dressed. Camp days include art and reading sessions. Although all our camps utilize fun-filled fitness programming some weeks this summer have a theme.
We will be also be offering the following camps : Nerf Skills & Drills, Martial Arts & Fight Choreography, Sports Conditioning Camp and Parisi Speed & Performance Camps.
The goal is to offer variation in programming that reflects some of POW!’s signature events and programming. It will also create a diverse camp experience for the kids that spend many weeks with us over the summer.
PARISI SPORTS PERFORMANCE CAMP
This is the perfect week-long camp for the young athlete. Our camp is focused on building the athlete as a whole. Aside from following Parisi’s Signature Training Program, we will invest time in enhancing each child’s character, athletic intellect and leadership skills. All kids will be required to read an autobiography of an athlete. They will also be given assignments that expand their knowledge of nutrition and be offered an opportunity to exercise their leadership skills. Kids must come prepared each day with lunch, snacks, water bottle and appropriately dressed for outdoor training.
MOVIE NIGHTS, (5-12YRS)
One of our favorite things to do is create PARENT PERKS! Enjoy a Saturday night dinner date without your kids. Check out one of the West Loop’s newest restaurants or enjoy a quiet night at home. These evenings begin around 6pm. Our goal is to lead the kids through a short workout before the evening’s feature film. Please send a water bottle for your child. This event requires a 10 kid minimum and has a 20 child maximum. All early bird and sibling discounts must be applied manually so please call (312-829-7699) or email us directly if you qualify for a discount.
NERF NIGHT (8-12 yrs)
Drop your child off for 90 minutes of fast moving Nerf Nation action! Kids will take part in active challenges that test their shooting skills. Kids will be given team assignments and individual events. As they progress through this evening filled with a wide range of challenges they will accumulate points. Each player will earn points and be entered into our leader-board. The end of the evening will reveal a POW! Nerf Nation Champion. Logistics for play: most events will use POW’s single shot shooters to maintain fairness. Kids may bring their own Nerf gun for a series of ‘open events.’ This event requires a 10 kid minimum and no more than 20 kids.
