MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- With schools across the country turning to virtual or hybrid school schedules for the 2020-2021 school year, many parents are faced with finding a way to balance work and school schedules for their families. Life Time, the nation's premier healthy lifestyle brand, which serves more than 270,000 kids nationwide every month, is launching Distance Learning Support Camps for children aged 5-12. The first-of-its-kind camps from Life Time are designed to help families' bridge gaps in their child's school calendar and keep kids connected this fall in a safe, clean environment.
Children enrolled in the camps will be placed into small groups according to current guidelines from state and local governments. Parents can choose full or partial days of care to build a schedule that meets their needs. Students will receive school-work assistance using their devices from home during the camp, plus active lesson plans, including activities that children may be missing from their normal school day such as: Youth fitness, arts and crafts, S.T.E.A.M. activities, and music. Most importantly, kids will have the ability to connect with others while following structured lesson plans.
"Parents need help right now as they work to figure out how to best support their kids during this crazy time – and that's what Life Time Kids is here to do through our Distance Learning Support Camps – just as we do with our summer and school break camps," said Alicia Kockler, Vice President of Life Time Kids. "In serving more than 270,000 kids nationwide every month at Life Time, we have the programming and structure to give parents peace of mind while allowing their kids to learn and grow, all while being connected to other kids in a safe and healthy environment."
Life Time's Distance Learning Support Camps will be offered at more than 100 Life Time destinations across the country. Start dates for the camps will vary based on location and local district demands.

Life Time is leading the way with enhanced cleaning and safety protocols to ensure families feel comfortable dropping their kids off at our destinations, including twice-daily temperature checks and mask requirements for all children and counselors. Children will also be socially distanced while doing activities and school work.
With new and expanded protocols for every area and program throughout its vast athletic resorts, Life Time enlisted a former state epidemiologist (M.D. and Ph.D.) with a wide range of experiences in clinical occupational and environment medicine to set a new standard for cleaning and building member trust.
