About GrowFit

Founded in 2010 by Russ Nuffer, GrowFit brings the magic of summer camp to life for children everywhere. Sparked by his own memories of sports and friendships, Russ envisioned a summer camp where today’s kids could relish those same joys. Unlike many camps that focus on competitive sports, GrowFit prioritizes a safe, team-centric environment. Our aim? To ensure every child has the chance to make unforgettable summer camp memories, surrounded by sports and newfound friends.

How it all started.

GrowFit started as a physical education company with the whole child in mind. GrowFit Curriculum was built to make physical education accessible and fun for all kiddos through professionally designed lesson plans that focus on social and emotional learning. The curriculum is used for camp and was created by educators and designed to inspire kids to try new sports and games while focusing on their social and emotional learning.
As a result of this, the GrowFit approach is a radically different sports camp. Combined with decades of experience in physical education, children will receive unparalleled attention in an environment that fosters being kind, trying new things, and supporting others.

Our goals are simple.

We encourage and inspire your child to explore the world around them. To try new things. To build confidence and challenge themselves.

Our staff is trained in child development and are skilled educators and coaches.

Our staff is committed to the safety of every child and has extensive training in anti-bullying as well as teambuilding.

We build relationships with our families and children to create a happy, fun experience for everyone. We are an extension of your family and consider ourselves a part of your village.
