I sent my twins to mission grit for a week long camp this summer. All I can say is WOW! It was amazing! Paul, the owner is awesome. The kids have an awesome time. They’re never bored! They came home each day and were so excited to tell me all about what they had done, and even better, what they had accomplished. They get to grill out and do team building exercises. Water play. Nerf battles… I could go on and on about how much they enjoyed the camp! They also loved it so much they want to have their birthday party there! Mission Grit is ON POINT!

Mission Grit is a totally different experience for Kids and parents as well. Our daughter attends the weekly Classes and the Summer Camp here and no two days the activities have ever been the same. She has always come back excited and thrilled with what she has learnt. Coach Paul at Mission Grit is dedicated to the success of these kids he not only focuses on their physical strength but also trains them on life skills. The effort Coach Paul puts in the preparation of each class to make it a enjoyable and learning experience for the kids is commendable

Mission Grit is a completely different after school activity than we've ever found before. I love that it encourages my kids to be active, strong, and skillful without the highly competitive environment in most sports leagues. Paul does a wonderful job of knowing how hard to push each individual child so that they are forced out of their comfort zone to try new things, but are still able to have fun. The activities and challenges he sets up for the kids are creative and unique, and every week he also makes time to teach important life skills (like how duct tape works, or the proper way to clean your body after exercise).

OUR PHILOSOPHY

spirit methiod (3)_edited.png
Spirit Method.png

Our activities are influenced by disciplines such as Natural Science and Social Science. Natural Science is reflected through the utilization of various aspects of Physics, such as energy, force and mechanics. Our facility is like one big engineering lab with multi level structures, ropes, bridges, carts, hoists, planks, cubes, plumbing tubes, power tools, electricity related components and other pieces of equipment that allow us to easily “engineer” new course configuration and alter activities. Social Science is reflected through the social interaction between the participants in our teambuilding and scenario based quests. We are constantly learning, observing and experimenting to create the most unique experiences for our students and guests.

Spirit Method.png

Problem solving is embedded in every task of our curriculum through various scenario based quests, mind games and team challenges. Our students learn to simplify challenges, make data analysis, and provide effective solutions. We take a ‘long term’ developmental approach by providing fun, creative, educational experiences, ‘in the moment’ mentorship and reinforcement.

Spirit Method.png

Children are high energy and natural explorers. Our concept is specifically designed to move our children's body and mind. Our activities are well balanced between challenging obstacles courses, exercising, educational games, team building challenges and scenario based quests, all powered by high energy, awesome music and a sense of urgency.

Spirit Method.png

We believe that in order to develop Respect within a child, showing respect is not enough. This calls for an active role of doing, practicing, and taking responsibility for your actions. Our children practice respect through discipline, accountability, kindness, gratitude, patience, empathy and the development of self esteem.

Spirit Method.png

We believe that children learn best through interactive activities as this develops curiosity, teaches skills and makes it fun. This is why all of our activities are hands-on, where children apply knowledge and create actions. During the activities our instructors monitor the actions and provide corrective or positive feedback.

Spirit Method.png

We introduce children to the art of teamwork by giving them real hands-on experiences, through clever team building challenges, scenario based quests and the incorporation of a non competitive environment where everyone feels comfortable and connected. During these action based tasks we carefully develop the understanding of the teamwork triangle (T3) that consists of Trust, Communication and Devotion.

LET'S BUILD A COMMUNITY


Our love, passion, and commitment is like a wind that fills the sails of our communities. We strongly believe in our communities, and this is why we get involved with community projects, bring local businesses together, provide schools with team-building events, offer life changing careers to veterans and provide sponsorships.
