G-Force Karts Summer Camp in Richmond!

In Summer 2014, we launched our first ever G-Force Karts Summer Camp in Richmond.

By all accounts from what we heard from both parents and kids, this camp was like nothing else…in a good way of course!

We will take what we learned this year on scheduling, how to plan activities, etc to grow and improve our G-Force Summer Camp in 2015.

We will be accepting early applications, so if you know you’d like to sign up your child, contact G-Force Karts online or call us at (804) 228-0188 and we can get the ball rolling. As with most all summer camps, our space is limited so we encourage you to plan ahead!

Here’s a quick recap of how we can our well received camp in 2014:

 

For the first time, we offered a week-long summer camp (ages 8 and up) in Richmond at G-Force Karts! Our summer camp included daily activities, action packed competitions, food, drinks and of course championships!

Aside from tons of racing, paintball and lasertag, our week-long camp also featured other great activities, such as: water balloon contests, a G-Force tie-dye t-shirt creation event, Nintendo competitions, and more!

We included lunch, snacks, and drinks all week long, and we  made sure to accommodate special dietary needs! (just contact us and we can figure out a suitable plan for your child).
