The 2015 Youth Sports Fitness Program (YSFP) offered through the University of New Mexico Continuing Education runs Monday, June 1 through Thursday, July 9 and provides a sports activity program for children ages 6-14. Last year, more than 100 children participated in the program. 

UNM CE Youth Programs partners with UNM departments and community organizations to launch a lifetime love of learning through programs that help youth explore career and academic interests, build new skills, participate in health and fitness activities and foster creativity.

“Youth camps and classes at UNM Continuing Education are geared towards exactly that balance of cultivating curiosity while nurturing a child’s talents so they can discover the value of learning in a joyful and supportive environment,” said Amy Greene, Youth Program Supervisor.”

Programs are held at community sites, UNM main campus and UNM Continuing Education, and range from one day to six weeks with the option of a half or full day schedule. Whether it’s fitness, theatre, engineering, music, fashion or LEGOs, with over 120 camps, there is something for every child.

“A new partnership with UNM academic departments, called Lobo Learning Launch, offers more opportunities for high school students to explore majors and careers through hands-on day camps led by faculty from across disciplines,” Greene said.

New this year is a partnership with New Mexico PBS (KNME) that offers NM PBS Kids Camp, for ages 6 to 13, themed around programs such as Sci Girls, Dinosaur Train, Wild Kratts, Curious George and more.
