Premier specialty sporting goods retailer provides activities for kids during the summer months

LOS ANGELES, May 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a recent survey conducted by premier specialty sporting goods retailer Sport Chalet, 58 percent of the respondents said that their children do not attend summer camp when school lets out. With the majority of kids staying home this summer, it's important to provide activities to keep them active and engaged when away from the classroom.

"While parents may opt out of sending their children to summer camp for a number of reasons, they should still encourage kids to get off the couch and enjoy the sun," said Sport Chalet Expert Seton Kidd. "Sport Chalet provides a wide range of fun activities, toys and equipment for kids to get the summer camp experience from the comfort of their home or backyard."

To help kids turn off the TV and tune into the outdoors, Kidd provides a selection of gear recommendations.

Water Fun: According to the survey, 56 percent of Americans said that their children prefer spending time in the water to other summer activities. Sport Chalet offers a selection of water games and gear for kids to enjoy under adult supervision.

  • Transform the backyard into a water-filled wonderland for the younger ones with an Intex Kid's Dinosaur Play Swim Center where kids ages three and older can slide down the volcano, splash around in the pool, stand under the trickling waterfall or get sprayed by the inflatable palm tree.
  • For the bigger kids, parents can unfurl the Slip N Slide Double Wave Rider, which features dual lanes and sprays of water for an easy way to glide into summer fun. Kids can also get an extreme water fight going with the Stream Machine Water Launcher, which shoots water up to 70 feet.
  • Use the pool for more than just swimming. Kids and their friends can challenge each other to a basketball or volleyball game with the Swimways 2-in-1 Pool Game, or they can play a floating game of cornhole with the Airhead Lob The Blob Game.

Team Sports: Just because it's summer, doesn't mean that kids have to stop playing the sports they love during the school year. Sport Chalet also offers a wide range of sports gear to kick off a rousing game of basketball or soccer.

Lawn Games: For an easy and efficient way to have maximum fun, parents can simply set up a lawn game in the front or backyard. Sport Chalet provides a few games that will liven up the green.

  • Kids can exercise accuracy and precision with the safe-to-use Bear Archery Toy Crossbow. Aim for the target and see who can get the most points in a competitive, more sophisticated game of darts.
  • The Park & Sun Sports Deluxe Tetherball Set will bring playground fun to any home. With an easy set up, solid steel pole and woven tether, the kids will play tetherball for hours.
