Unique Summer Classes for Kids

Summer’s coming up and as per usual we parents need to find new activities for our kids to try and learn. The usual classes and lessons include sports like basketball and martial arts, swimming, art and dancing. Though these are all worthwhile activities there are plenty more that kids can do and learn. These suggested unique summer classes can be both fun and educational yet provide kids an introduction to activities beyond the norm.

One thing we need to keep a watch on is our kid’s health especially when it comes to sunburn, sore eyes, and diarrhea. During the summer kids are out and about and are exposed to the sun most of the day, other kids and a variety of food. Make sure to have your kids drink their glass of Nido twice a day so they’re well protected and stay strong during play time.

Archery 

Classes for archery have been around for quite some time but doesn’t have as many attendees as your usual sports lessons. Archery teaches kids focus, coordination, and confidence. After the slew of popular movies such as the Hunger Games, Brave, and archers Hawkeye and the Arrow archery became much more popular.

Suggested venue: Kodanda Archery Range

Parkour

Another athletic pursuit is parkour. This needs careful consideration though but ideally if your child finds this interesting it’s better to have them learn from the best. An alternative to learning parkour on YouTube is having them attend lessons. Some benefits include improving physical strength, quick thinking skills and enhancing instincts.

Suggested venue: Ninja Academy

Animation

More and more Filipinos are becoming animators and have penetrated Hollywood with their unique talent. Notable Filipino animators are Nelson Bohol (Inside Out, Monsters University, Brave, WALL-E, Ratatouille, Cars, and Finding Nemo), Armand Serrano (Big Hero 6, Brother Bear, Hotel Transylvania), and Josie Trinidad (Zootopia, Wreck-It Ralph, Tangled).

Suggested venue: Dream Play Dream Studio

Cooking

From baking pretzels to cupcakes there’s plenty of courses when it comes to learning how to cook. It’s a fun activity to do with your kids especially for moms like me who aren’t versed in the kitchen.

Jael is a very curious boy and often likes to try new things and food as long as it looks appealing. I’m not always there to see what kind of food he eats but with LACTOBACILLUS Protectus in every glass of milk that he drinks I know his body is prepared and ready for any illnesses that may try to invade.

Suggested venues: Brotzeit, The Maya Kitchen

Music

Knowing how to play at least one musical instrument is a strong suit. When I was younger I wanted to learn how to play the guitar. That never came to fruition though. My eldest learned how to play the ukelele on his own but I’m sure he would have loved to attend classes.

Suggested venue: Uke Box Caffe

Mermaid Swimming 

Why not have your kids learn swimming with a twist? Mermaid swimming is slowly becoming popular and a trending activity especially this summer. This will be a hit with The Little Mermaid fans and I’m one of them!

Suggested venue: Philippine Mermaid Swim Academy

  1. Personally, I would prefer the archery, mermaid swimming, and music. I’ve been into music since I was 5 and still continuing to play the piano. What I really about music is it’s my first love and I really do not know what will I do without it. But if given a chance, I’d really take archery and mermaid swimming! 🙂

  2. I’m already planning for my kids’ summer classes also. I’m thinking of enrolling them in swimming classes or martial arts this summer. They spent the past summers training in performing arts usually. We might try something different this time.

  3. Summer classes are the ways for children to explore new interests. I think this is beneficial as each activity, such as the ones you outlined, as well as countless others, all have benefits which are not only direct, but could also be indirect. So, that is why choosing each activity is important as well. While some activities are more important to life skills such as swimming, others may seem more trivial. Regardless, so as long as it is fun and there is a learning, then it should be good.

  4. Just this morning when we had our breakfast, my son told me summer is just about a month from now. I sensed he is excited and anticipates to be real busy. These summer activities are something I might look into, especially the archery. My boy also loves cooking and baking so I will also check Maya Kitchen.

  5. You know, I had my Jenae try out parkour just a couple of weeks ago and she loved it! And you’re right, Ninja academy is one of the best places to get your kids to try it out.. They have this summer program, from what I saw in the facebook page wherein you can have 9 sessions + milo tshirt + insurance from Philamlife worth 50k Php (if ever there are accidents) and it all costs 4900PHP 😀

    Jenae and Rafael are definitely going there this summer. 😀

    On the other hand… if the kids continue with this… and we had to ground them at home… then they can easily escape the gates. hahahaha!
