Challenging and Comprehensive College Preparation

Youth Multi-Sports Camp

Our Youth Multi-Sports Camp (for boys and girls ages 5-10) 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. The camp will be broken into two divisions by age (5-7) and (8-10). 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.

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, softball and swimming.* 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. Each Friday campers will enjoy a Pizza Party!
