Youth Multi-sports Camp

Our Youth Multi-Sports Camp is designed to introduce younger campers to a variety of sports by incorporating basic sport skills and equipment into modified age-appropriate games and activities that are lots of fun. Imaginations are captured while children improve coordination, balance, strength, eye-hand coordination and agility. Emphasis is on personal skill development so campers are grouped with others of similar age and skills, while collaborative activities stress team participation in an inclusive atmosphere.

Camp Details

(coed, ages 6-10)
Registration for Summer 2020 opens Monday, December 2

The camp will be broken into two divisions by age (6-7) and (8-10). Each day campers participate in a wide variety of athletic activities and sports such as soccer, lacrosse, basketball, flag-football (no physical contact), floor hockey, and softball. Open swim in included two days a week. Our experienced staff will guide each camper to expand their personal development, athletic skills and knowledge of various sports according to each individual’s abilities, regardless of previous athletic experience. Personal best, team participation and sportsmanship are stressed in a fun and active environment.

Open Swim
Campers swim twice a week at Cranbrook's Williams Natatorium. Swim tests are conducted on the first day. Campers who fail or prefer not to take the test are supplied with life jackets and remain in the shallow end of the pool. Campers are allowed to retake the test at any time. The Natatorium staff include a certified pool manager, certified lifeguards, and our trained camp staff who serve as lookouts.

Lunch, Snacks, and Allergies
Lunches and snacks are included in tuition and are provided by Chartwells Dining Services. They are a nut-free organization who cater Cranbrook Schools’ meals during the academic year. Special arrangements can be made for campers with food allergies. Lunches are served in the Cranbrook Upper School Dining Hall.

Extended Care, Transportation Service, and After Camp Activities
  • Extended Care offers activities, games, and open time outside and in the gym as early as 7AM and as late as 6PM. Afternoon care includes a snack. Extended Care is located at Cranbrook Lower School Brookside. Campers are bused to/from camp each day. Extended Care is also a nice option for families with multiple children attending more than one of our camps to reduce the number of pick up points; parents/guardians simply pick up and drop off all children attending Extended Care at Brookside.
  • Transportation Service is available to shuttle campers to and from specific stops in Birmingham (8:10 AM / 3:45 PM), Rochester Hills (7:45 AM / 3:45 PM), Royal Oak (7:50 AM / 4:05 PM), Troy (8:10 AM / 4:10 PM), and West Bloomfield (7:45 AM / 3:45 PM). Campers not picked up in time will be transported to Extended Care.
  • After Camp Activities are available, such as group Swim Lessons, Chess, and Coding.
  • These options can be combined to meet your needs. For example, you can choose morning Transportation Service and afternoon Extended Care.
  • Logistical information for these additional options will be provided in the Parent Welcome Packet closer to the start of camp.
Communication & Photos
Parents/guardians are emailed a newsletter each week that includes a recap from the prior week, highlights for the following week, field trip information, updated group lists, lunch and snack menus, and merchandise available for sale. Daily camp photos are taken and posted in the Photo Gallery to view, post, and purchase.

Why Cranbrook Schools Summer Camps?
Each camp includes a dedicated Director, one or more Assistant Directors, an Office Administrator, Instructors, and Counselors. Each age-aligned group has one or two counselors who remain with the campers throughout the day and take them to each of the instructional areas.

The camps are accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA) and licensed through the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA).

Each year, camp directors and assistant directors attend ACA’s Mid States Camp Conference in St. Charles, IL. Specialized activity instructors are sent to or are provided training for certification. Camp staff are paid above average industry-standard wages and they are provided lunch and annual wage increases. The camp nurses are members of the Association of Camp Nursing and attended their national conference. The director of all camps attends Michigan, Mid States, and the national conferences to ensure Cranbrook continues to be relevant, remain aware of national trends, and network with fellow youth development professionals. He also presents at these conferences and serves in professional volunteer roles such as the Community and Business Development Chair for ACA Michigan Local Council of Leaders and serves as an Associate Accreditation Visitor.
