G-Force Karts Summer Camp in Richmond!
Summer Camp Rocks @ G-Force Karts!
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’re excited to announce that Summer camp is back in 2016! 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!
An Unforgettable Summer Camp Experience in Richmond
Our Summer camp offers a week-long experience for children (ages 8 and up) in Richmond at G-Force Karts! Our summer camp includes daily activities, action packed competitions, food, drinks and of course, championships!
Alongside tons of racing, paintball, archery tag and laser tag, our week-long camp also features other great activities, such as: water balloon contests, a G-Force tie-dye t-shirt creation event, Nintendo competitions, and more!
We include lunch, snacks, and drinks all week long, and we will absolutely make sure to accommodate special dietary needs. (just contact us and we can figure out a suitable plan for your child).
