What Is the City Summer Program?

When the kids are out of school, finding healthy ways to keep them active is a huge priority for parents. The MYA City Summer Program is designed to help kids realize their full potential as runners and develop a love for healthy habits, even during summer 2024! 

During the program, your child will get access to:

  • ​​Cross-Country Running: The program includes cross-country training, promoting endurance and stamina through long-distance running.
  • General Running Skills: Children learn and enhance their running techniques, focusing on speed, agility, and overall fitness.
  • Health and Fitness Education: The program incorporates lessons on healthy living and fitness, teaching participants how to maintain their physical well-being.
  • Field Trips: To make the summer extra fun, we’ll take students on field trips around the city as the program goes on. 
  • Math & Reading Tutoring: Staying sharp during the summer also means focusing on math and reading skills. We’ll combine math, reading, nutrition, and character development activities to make tutoring fun and meaningful. 
  • Transportation: To help students get to and from programming, we offer pick-ups in communities in North Memphis, South Memphis, and East Memphis.

Who Can Join? 

Like many Memphis summer camps, we make sure our programming is accessible to as many students in the area as possible. If you have a 3rd-8th grade boy or girl who is interested in getting active, they’re welcome to join us for a summer of fun.

Plus, with scholarships available, this program is affordable and accessible to every student-athlete in Memphis! 

When Does It Start? 

This Memphis summer camp runs in two sessions. The first session lasts from Monday, June 17th to Friday, July 19th, at Christian Brothers High School, and the second session lasts from Monday, July 8th to Friday, July 19th.
