Do you have a SPEED DEMON living in your house?
Searching for a summer program that will not only entertain the restless demon, buy also educate, inform, and help them develop into a competent and safe young driver? KARTPLEX Kid Camps can satisfy their ‘Need for Speed’ and your need to know that your favourite Speed Demon will be safe, smiling and tuckered out when they arrive back at home.
Kid Kart Camps are designed for boys and girls ages 8-15
Our program gets them away from their phone and computer screens and get them excited and engaged into a ‘REAL’ high-energy group activity that is both physically and mentally challenging….not to mention SUPER FUN!
Our programs are designed and operated by passionate professionals with decades of experience racing, coaching and developing young drivers. Our Lead Instructor, Craig has coached hundreds of racing drivers ranging from raw beginners all the way to regional and national champions who went on to become professional racing drivers! Our team will ensure that your little racer becomes a safer and better educated driver, gets quicker around the racetrack, and learns a few valuable life lessons along the way.
Best experience our kids have ever had!! Craig is an amazing instructor and Rose was absolutely fabulous. A must do when in the Okanagan. Will be doing again next time we are back. These are real fast Go-Karts…not the typical ones you see at your usual go kart tracks!!!
BEGINER to EXPERT
Our Camps are divided in to Beginner and Advanced groups to ensure that every driver is engaged at all times, but not in over their heads. We believe that individual attention is critical to driver development.
Programs will be progressive but flexible. We will address every driver at their own level and offer challenges that are suitable, regardless of experience, or how many camp days they have attended.
Our goal is that each participant improves not only their driving skills, race-craft and speed, but also life skills like sportsmanship, commitment, problem solving, teamwork and communication.
