Physical literacy means developing the foundational skills and the confidence required to participate in regular physical activity, play a sport or get to the podium. YMCA camps include intentional activities that help build physical literacy and allow your child to participate in whatever activity or sport they choose.

It’s proven that people who are physically literate are more likely to be active for life. Learn more about physical literacy at activeforlife.com.

Parent myths, and real truths about physical literacy. When parents talk to me about physical literacy and their children, different myths and misunderstandings often surface. Most revolve around their basic understanding of movement skills, sport and activity, and physical development. Some relate to the perceived attitudes and desires of their children. But a lot of it is bunk.

1. My kid is not athletic This is probably the biggest myth going. After the child tries a couple of organized team sports at age 5 and doesn’t score any goals, the parents figure that destiny has shown its hand. Their child will never be physically literate, nor will they be playing in the major leagues 20 years from now. Humans are designed to move, and unless your child has an extraordinary developmental condition or severe injury that significantly impedes physical movement, you can be sure that they have some degree of latent “athleticism”. It’s called physical literacy, and you have to help them to develop it. Physical literacy doesn’t happen on its own. To help your child develop physical literacy and movement skills, simply ensure that they get lots of opportunities to explore different physical activities, sports, and free play. And help them to find something that they enjoy doing.

2. It’s too late for my kid Once their child reaches age 8, many parents figure they are past their prime. Sadly, a lot of coaches and instructors will tell them the same. The key thing to understand: your kid can still learn to play tennis at age 8. In fact, they can still learn to play at age 18 or 38. It’s more important to develop physical literacy through a variety of physical activities, sports, and free play. And while it’s optimal to start in early childhood, it’s never too late to develop physical literacy. Just get moving.

Then I ask the parents: “has he tried swimming? Skating? Judo? Sailing? Hiking? Rock-climbing? Skiing? Skateboarding? Ballet? Hiphop? Badminton?” Silence.

4. My child doesn’t like competition Some kids really don’t like competition in any form, and that’s fine. But the assumption here is that all physical activity is competitive, and therefore the child must remain a lump on the sofa for the next seven decades. That simply isn’t true. Again, physical activity — and by extension, physical literacy — doesn’t have to revolve around ice hockey, soccer, basketball, and professional tennis. Physical literacy can be dance. It can be orienteering. It can be rock-climbing. It can be hundreds of things. So please don’t give up on your kid. It’s almost certain that there is a physical activity or a sport that they’ll enjoy. And there’s always time for them to develop a healthy, active lifestyle by developing physical literacy. Author, Jim Grove click here to read the full article.

3. My kid doesn’t like sports Physical literacy is not “sports”. It’s about developing general competency and confidence in movement. When parents have said this to me [my kid doesn’t like sports], i ask them: “what sports and activities has your child tried?” “He did a one-week sport camp last summer and they played soccer, basketball, and tennis. He didn’t like any of it.”

CAMP YMCA

CAMP YMCA MULTI-ACTIVITY CAMP YMCA camps take place at all six Calgary YMCA locations. During multi-activity camps, participants will play sports, sing songs, get artsy, and participate in a variety of traditional camp games in the facility. They’ll play court sports, scale walls, and take on the pool! Some will even explore philanthropy. Half-day, full-day and week-long camps are offered at all Calgary YMCA locations.

CAMP RIVEREDGE Campers will brave the weather and experience the fun of a fully outdoor camp - right in the city! Located at Sandy Beach in Calgary’s southwest, this outdoor space is full of adventure.

Located just an hour outside of Calgary in Bow Valley Wildlands Provincial Park, Camp Chief Hector provides a rich ecosystem for children and youth to learn and grow through nature.

Outdoor enthusiasts will test their skills on the low-ropes and challenge course, bouldering cube, and archery range. They’ll even build a team shelter!

This fun outdoor camp promotes independence and individual growth through group development and challenge.

Participants will join in on traditional camp songs and games, and explore forests and wide-open spaces.

Your child will explore nature, canoe on the lake, go horseback riding, and swim in the pool. They’ll test their love the high-ropes, challenge course, rock climbing wall, archery course and getting creative in the adventure park. They’ll enjoy camp songs and campfires in the evening before they hit their tipi for a much needed sleep. An experience not to be missed!
