The goal of our camps is to build the athletic skills of each and every child. We will play a wide array of fitness games, teach kids about fitness and healthy living concepts, and more! Weather permitting, camps will also include plenty of outdoor time. Please make sure your kids come appropriately dressed! Camp days include art and reading sessions to cultivate minds as well as bodies.

Our day is structured and active. We divide our kids into smaller groups for most of the classes so they are training and playing with kids their own age. By offering a variety of programming that reflects POW!'s signature values, we're proud to create lasting memories for our campers and offer children all across the West Loop, Wicker Park, Pilsen, West Town and beyond a place to stay active during the summer!

Our camp day is considerate to working parents. Our camp is one flat price. Drop offs are at 8am and pick ups are at 5pm.

These young elementary aged kids will have an opportunity to experience the foundation of the Parisi Speed School training methods along with fun sports conditioning games. This week long program includes a full day that allows drop off at 8 am and pick up at 5 pm. In the spirit of true summer camp, POW! Kids will balance out training sessions with art projects, park time, board games, social activities, dance parties and more.

Training sessions will be scheduled to feature a variety of speed and agility training lessons. Kids are expected to arrive with packed food for their 3 structured mealtimes, a book and water bottle. Each week will also explore our community with a walking field trip to our neighborhood parks.

This camp will build the young 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. Camp week will be filled with athletic training, nutrition lessons, education in anatomy, athletic testing and yoga. Training is never just about the workout. This immersive experience will help young athletes understand the meaning behind peak performance. Our athletes will enjoy 3 structured workouts a day.

The week will begin with athletic testing. Each day will teach lessons intended to influence every camper’s athletic perspective and habits. POW! and Parisi pride themselves on building more confident, fit and healthier students.

To understand Chicago, a person must experience it. Even native Chicagoans sometimes need to step back to really understand their home. At POW! Kids, we pride ourselves in our hands-on, structured, active curricula. POW! takes this approach with immersive learning, exploring the streets of Chicago.

This camp is best for teens who love Chicago and want to know more about it through actually living it. Rain or shine, our teens will trample the city and use the CTA for scavenger hunts in classic Chicago locales, to gaze at world class art, dialog about pizza comparisons and even dive into the grid system that makes Chicago the greatest city in the world. And of course, these camps will offer a daily workout, for POW! builds confident, fit, safe and healthy people.

Owner, Katalin Rodriguez Ogren, a native-Chicagoan, who grew up on Chicago Ave and Wells with her brothers created this camp for the independent, curious, and active teenager. Campers will experience what it means to be a city-kid. This week long camp will begin at POW! Gym in the West Loop where they will start their day with a workout. Kids will then be led through the city exploring various topics like art, architecture, history, sports, culture and food. Teens will navigate the city while using public transportation, led by Lead Instructor Anya Zamiar.

Through adventure based exploration of the city, campers will accidentally learn what makes growing up ‘Chicago’ such a gift. Chicago has a unique vibe built in its cultural centers like art, music, and architecture. Teens will explore the cornerstones that make Chicago’s art scene one of the best in the world. After observing examples of art, music, and architecture around the city, teens will grow a new appreciation for Chicago’s influence on the world.

Chicago is known world wide for many things. If you have ever traveled abroad wearing a Chicago sports jersey, you know that our Bears, Cubs, White Sox, Blackhawks and Bulls will prompt conversation from admiring fans wherever you go. And if sports do not echo in your presence, just mentioning Chicago pizza will get a conversation rolling. This week will focus on the culture of food and sports.
