Sports Camp is for Campers who enjoy playing sports and being active. Each week has a sports theme. Our staff work with Campers to emphasize sportsmanship and teamwork. Sports Camp includes games, archery, sports skill sessions, swimming and special events. Sports Camp also includes:

  • Participation in group tennis sessions led by The J tennis professional, Todd Perkins.
  • Group swim lessons with Red Cross Certified Swim Instructors. Generally, 1st and 2nd graders have lessons four times weekly and 3rd and 4th graders have lessons two times weekly. More info available here >
  • Games such as GaGa, Wall Ball, and other fun camp activities.

Each week will include a variety of sports activities with a focus on one specific sport. Some weeks will include a field trip, and some weeks will include an Undernight.

Some weeks will also include an option to enroll in Next Level Advanced Sports Camp. See below.

What is a J Camp Undernight?

A special activity at J Camp where campers can choose to stay at Camp on select Wednesday nights from 4:00-8:00 p.m. Campers will participate in special games and activities, a cook-out, an extra swim, and a campfire with songs, sports trivia and s’mores. There is no extra charge for Undernights. Please contact the Camp Office at 913-327-8060 or at [email protected] if your child will NOT be attending the Undernight.
