Hawaii's Annual Fitness Exhibition at The Blaisdell Arena

Kids Zone

Hi Fit Expo activity: Kids Zone

Many parents come to HI Fit Expo every year to enjoy their time with their family, most importantly to let their kid/kids have a jolly good time.

And while it’s always amazing to see just how many kids are having a great time with their new experiences, it’s the benefits and the outcomes; the stories of positive impact that really stand out.

There is plenty of feedback to draw from and report on, from one Expo alone. Many ask, “what is hi fit expo kids zone like?” and while the answers out there are good, there is another layer to consider. 

Many does not know that Hi Fit Expo can actually be a learning or growth experience for your kids!

  •  If you have kids, you might think sending them to kids zone with other kids to play, have fun, learn, interact, etc. isn’t much different from a school experience, right? 

Importance: Because it offers a structured opportunity for children to grow. Kids go from home to school to extracurriculars, with each environment contributing to their development. 

Kids Zone Benefits

1. It Helps Kids Build a Unique Interest

2. It Allows for a Deep Dive Into New Skills

Even if your school does offer “different” activities, Kids Zone allows for a deeper dive.

 

3. It Leads to a New Type of Friendship-Building

Also, it’s not only a 2days engrossed in one particular sport, or subject, but it’s jumping into an activity with other kids

4. Kids Zone Helps with Mental Stimulation & Physical Activity

Kids Zone can get kids going, both mentally and physically. Have a child who loves video games? Who doesn’t? Kids Zone will allow kids to get off of couches and into courses that teach them how to make games instead of simply playing. Kids Zone will also allow for physical activity no matter their choice is. 

5. Camp Reinforces Independence and Empowerment

Even if you think your kids are independent, nothing brings out and tests that independence more than giving them time away from you, on their own.

Without mom or dad around, who is going to make your child’s decisions? Kids Zone allows for a chance for children to truly understand the thought that goes into making a good decision, and will discover even more about themselves in the process. Not to mention (ear muffs for those parents who think they should be the only source of guidance for their kids), children can also lean on peers for support, if they do need additional help. 

6. Kids Zone Allows for Confidence to be Reinforced by Success

With activity and growth comes success or failure. Whether it is basketball or 3D modeling, each activity comes with its own set of mini milestones and tests. Some of these activities might be brand new to your child, while others could be extensions of what they already know.

7. Kids Zone Leads to Creativity, Free of Judgement

Creativity can’t be stifled at Kids Zone because students don’t have to worry about getting a failing grade, as mentioned above. It is only when kids are free of such restriction that their creativity can flourish.

8. Kids Zone Builds All-Around Resilience

This is a culmination of many of the above benefits. New friendships, confidence, independence, sense of belonging. All of these things contribute to the development of your child as they make strides from being a kid to a strong, considerate, competent adult.

9. It Instills Appreciation and Gratitude

And let’s not forget, time away from home helps kids appreciate home, their parents, their belongings, a meal cooked by mom or dad, and everything else they don’t have at camp.

Unfortunately, the appreciation doesn’t last long in most kids, and might take more than a week away for them to truly appreciate all that’s given to them on a daily basis. But, appreciation definitely takes shape at Kids Zone.

 

10. It is Fun and Entertaining (of Course!)

Kids Zone is many things. If you regularly send your kids to Kids Zone, now you have a few new benefits to look out for, and harvest in your children.

If you send your son or daughter to Kids Zone to have fun, that is great! But also try and prep them beforehand to ensure they maximize their ability to attain the benefits above.
