Jam Hops has created a program to help children become well rounded individuals! This program will teach children crucial Character Traits and lessons to help them become a LIFE CHAMPION. We believe that it is important that children learn these skills and we are here to help guide them! Each month we will focus on a new Trait, they are listed below. Our hope is that by focusing on these character building Traits, we will help children attending Jam Hops become more successful now during their developmental years, and also as they move into adulthood.
Here are the twelve Jam Hops Kids of Karacter Traits-
