One of the things that kids love so much about CentriKid is the element of choice. They get to choose how they set up their room, what food they will eat from the cafeteria, and whether or not they will take a shower. Mom or Dad might help pack the suitcase, but the kids get to choose what they will actually wear. The best things that kids get to choose, though, are their track times.
At CentriKid Camps, we offer 19 very unique track times. We have a customized software program that assigns kids into track times based on their choices, and the Camp Director and Assistant Director are always happy to make changes to accommodate special circumstances. We want kids to be as happy as possible.
One question that we are often asked is regarding the skill level of our sports track times. We have to tailor our track time plans to a very broad spectrum of kids, so in general, our sports tracks are on a beginner to intermediate level. If you have a kid in your group that was recently named MVP of his baseball team, he might be a little bored with the baseball track. This might be a great opportunity to encourage these kids to try something new. Then again, these types of kids are often “enthusiasts” or “fanatics,” so they may say “baseball or nothing,” and that’s the beauty of it – it all comes down to choice!
Time and time again when I ask kids what their favorite part of the camp day is, they consistently tell me “track times.” This is because they are doing things that they love and in which they are interested…and the best part? CentriKid track time leaders will ALWAYS take time to make a meaningful connection to God’s word that relates to the spiritual theme for the day.

We’re excited about camp this summer and all the tracks in which kids will participate, and we hope you are too!
Don’t forget to have kids fill out their track time choices prior to arrival.
Have you heard the news? In 2013, we’ve changed the schedule and now kids can participate in three track times instead of just two!
