Has your tween or teen outgrown the playground? Send them to obstacle-course camp!
Pursuit OCR, a new indoor obstacle-course training centre for adults and kids in Toronto, is launching a full-day youth summer program for ages 10–17 that combines ninja skills training with Nerf battles, group exercise, individual fitness challenges, and lightsaber games.
If you’ve seen American Ninja Warrior or are familiar with competitions like Tough Mudder, you’re starting to get the picture. Pursuit’s larger-than-a-football-field space is filled with all manner of obstacles to climb over, scramble across, balance on, and crawl under.
The course is designed to accommodate everyone from beginners to serious athletes. It’s full-body fitness that’s all about healthy competition, individual challenges, and fun.
At $250 per camper for five full days of camp (8 am–6 pm) with lunch and snack included, it’s a great value.
The centre isn’t just for big kids, either—Sunday mornings before noon is set aside for kids-only play sessions for ages 12 and under and their parents or guardians. A field trip program for schools and camps is available for kids of all ages.
Pursuit OCR is at 444 Dufferin Street, just north of Queen Street. To learn more, call 647-467-8444 or register online for the summer break program. Weekly camp sessions run July 3 through September 1, 2017.
