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.
  • 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.
