KidStrong

Milestone Accelerator and Summer Camp

KidStrong is a milestone accelerator for kids walking through 11 years old. We help build future-ready kids who are confident making friends, run the playground, and raise their hand high in the classroom. We do this by giving parents the tools to build stronger kids through building strong bodies, strong character, and strong minds. Our year-round programs happen at the gym in Creve Coeur as does our summer camp.
