Sports Camps

These camps are designed for those interested in participating in competitive summer sports including softball, soccer, football, kickball, dodgeball, basketball, floor hockey and volleyball. Camps include field trips, demonstrations and free swim (not lessons). Rookies Camp, however, does include swim lessons. Competitive sports are a part of each camp, but the focus will vary by age group; i.e., Rookies focuses more on fundamentals, Middle School Camps focus more on fine tuning skills and strategies and competing in tournaments, and the other camps fall in between to varying degrees.

To keep groups competitive, no buddy requests are accepted except for Rookies Camp. Groups at other sports camps are put together by counselors and based on athletic ability. Note: Campers are in their groups between two and three hours per day and can spend the rest of the day with their friends.
