With the sunshine breaking through and warmer days hitting Olympia, we can feel summer is just around the corner. Kids are ready to try new things, make new friends, and most of all, have fun! As a parent, though, it can be overwhelming trying to juggle work and play with your family during the summer break. For those weeks you aren’t jet-setting off on a family vacation, your kids will love to spend the day at Steamboat Tennis & Athletic Club (STAC). Featuring an indoor tennis club, golf driving range, fitness classes, and an indoor pool, STAC is the perfect place for every kid to stay busy all summer long. STAC is hosting summer camp for 6 weeks throughout the summer and will have an open house on July 7 and August 2 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., so don’t miss your chance to sign up!

Active Meets Happy for Youth at STAC

Throughout the year, STAC features all sorts of wonderful youth programming. This summer, the club is branching out into a Summer Day Camp to provide accessible childcare solutions that your kids will love. STAC Youth Services Manager Tessa is thrilled to be ramping up the summer camp for the very first time at the club after years working in the fitness and childcare industry. “I just love getting to work with the kids and have fun with them,” she says. “They love to see the adults get involved and play games alongside them, so that’s what we do here.” With active involvement from experienced childcare providers, the youth services team is ready to bring fun and excitement to every activity at STAC.

In addition, STAC will have dedicated coaches throughout the day helping kids develop athletic skills, including tennis, swimming, yoga and more. The STAC coaching team comes with years of experience to help solidify your child’s skills in sport with challenging and exciting games for a range of levels and abilities. “We love to make learning fun,” shares Tessa. “As a health club, we want to teach kids that being active is something they can enjoy as they grow.”

By incorporating swim instruction, tennis lessons, and fitness demonstrations, the STAC Summer Day Camp combines recreation and education to give your child a well-rounded and enjoyable experience. The group format of these activities allows them to learn alongside their peers, which helps further develop soft skills like teamwork and communication while making new friends along the way.

A Full Day of Fun at STAC Summer Day Camp in Olympia

The STAC Summer Day Camp is a half-day camp from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. that provides a fun, recreational space for children ages 5 to 12 to play and learn. The camp will accommodate two groups of 14 kids ages 5 to 7 and 8 to 11, giving families one place to keep their children active regardless of their age. The STAC Summer Day Camp is available on a per-day or per-week basis depending on what is best for your family, and is open to guests for a daily or weekly guest pass. Drop-off is between 7:45 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. to give parents plenty of flexibility to get ready for work or prepare their kids for a fun day out of the house. Every morning, the youth services team will be ready to welcome your child in to get started on some free play time so you can head to work or tackle errands without worry. Knowing you have dedicated time to take care of your day will make family time together that much more relaxing and enjoyable.

Along with hitting the courts and splashing in the pool, the STAC Summer Day Camp goes beyond fitness by incorporating crafts and games into each day. Kids will get to engage in themed weeks such as Minecraft, Super Mario, and Under the Sea where they will make unique crafts and play exciting new games centered around their favorite characters or topics. “It really gets them involved more when it is something they like,” explains Tessa. “Plus, we get to be way more creative when we branch out into topics like space or superheroes. I know I love it too!” By centering the camp around these popular themes, kids get to connect deeper to their hobbies and interests and have something handcrafted to take home to show their family and friends.

On July 7 and August 2, STAC will be hosting a Summer Camp Open House from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. so families can come take a look at the facility and meet the staff before camp begins. This gives parents an opportunity to explore the club, meet the team, and ask questions. It also helps kids get comfortable in a new environment before that first drop-off day so they can feel confident and excited instead of nervous. The STAC Open House does not require registration, so mark it on your calendar and pop by when it is most convenient for you to check out the club.
