Join us for a weekend of fun, creative programming for children 0-10! All of our programs use STEM and Art to explore Amazing Athletes.

All Ages STEM and Art Programs:

Fitness Stations
Let’s get moving! Children demonstrate their physical fitness at interactive activity stations including jump rope, obstacle course, and the balance beam.

Trading Cards
Calling all future hall-of-famers! Children make their own athlete trading cards with creative stats, and get a taste of what it’s like to go pro.

Dance Studio
We’re dancing around the world! Join us in BADM’s very own dance studio to try out different dance styles from around the world and practice your favorite moves.

Healthy Habits
Stretching and physical therapy help keep amazing athletes at the top of their game! In our PT office, children practice stretches and learn the basics of staying in shape.

5+ STEM Programs:

Hot Hand Hoops
Basketball is a numbers game, and we’re here to play! Test different shot zones on our court to see which one gets the most baskets. Keep moving until you find the hot hand!

Sports Under the Surface
What makes a basketball bounce or a soccer ball roll? Children look inside common sports balls to see how they are made, then design their own balls to bounce, roll, or skid across different sports surfaces.

Shoe Design
Pro athletes are obsessive about their shoes, and for good reason! Children explore how the right footwear can impact athletic performance, then design a shoe prototype for their favorite activity.

STEM in Motion
Children can experiment with life-sized, cardboard cutouts with realistic joints to get a better idea of what their bodies look like when they’re running, jumping, and being active.

Prized Pennants
Every athlete can be a winner at BADM! Children will use different materials to create a sport pennant for their favorite team, athlete, or themselves!
