Guard Up! Youth and Teen Adventure Programs have curriculum and methods based on 3 important questions: Why, How and What
Our goal is to help children and teens:
1) Become well rounded and well balanced individuals
2) Embrace learning as an exciting and lifelong endeavor
3) Become self confident, responsible, and optimistic through creative play
We accomplish this by:
1) “Unplugging” kids from the computer and motivating them to exercise and make friends in person
2) Educating children in a manner that is exciting and imaginative… where exploration and possibilities are endless
3) Providing an environment where a teen’s actions have consequences and where their decisions can make a difference
We inspire your child by providing the following:
1) A dynamic game filled with physical interaction and constant scenarios that require teamwork, communication and compromise
2) Characters and creatures from real world mythology, literature and history which encourage kids to learn more in order to succeed at their quest
3) An ongoing, interactive storyline in which children’s decisions change the direction and outcome of the story
