Description

The Ladder 87 Summer Academy™ 2017

Monday 31st July - Friday 4th August

8am - 6pm everyday

With our proven commitment to positive social interaction in a fun and engaging way, The Ladder 87 Summer Academy™ is now ready! With fully first aid trained and DBS checked staff, your children are in safe hands with our crew.

As with all Ladder 87 projects, the whole event will have our core values running throughout. At the Academy children will learn about fitness, healthy eating and nutrition, wellbeing, and team-building.

We are proud to have some amazing local businesses working with us. Flints, a new business to Hitchin will be supplying healthy smoothies daily for the children to have as one of their snacks. The children will even have the opportunity to make and design their own smoothies, by using Flints new and exciting urban smoothie bike that powers the smoothie blender by the use of peddling! They will learn about healthy eating, nutrition and learn essential life skills of cooking wellbeing.

We have the team from Krav Maga joining us on one of Academic days. Krav Maga is a realistic and effective form of self-defence. It teaches you to defend yourself against all kinds of threats and attacks. From common slaps, chokes, and grabs, to all situations with weapons. It will also show you how to deal with more than one assailant. But it's not just about fighting; it’s about being aware of the situations, recognising a problem before it happens, improving your ability to respond quickly and solving that problem whilst under stress.

Included in the package will be 3 meals a day, with healthy snacks included (some of which the children will make themselves!!). The Academy will be open to children aged from 4 to 12.

Today at the Academy will be all about self-defence. Sarah Brendlor from Krav Maga will teach children about self-defence and how it is a countermeasure that involves defending the health and well-being of oneself from harm in an emergency. Great for the body to as it keeps you fit and is a great release of stress, allowing your little ones to let off some steam in a fun controlled way!
