We are loved & trusted


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).
