In the morning, all the kids are brought into the gym to play a high-energy interactive game to start off the day. Afterwards, they are given the choice to go outside to play soccer, go to the park, or play any activity they’d like. Ultimately, the campers’ request are prioritized and met.

After break, the campers are separated into their age groups to participate in the activity they choose. This is where they can practice and master their crafts. Acknowledge Positive Movements offers basketball, art classes, drama classes, and reading and writing. Every week, campers go on a trip and go to the local swimming pool to swim.
