Summer Sports

Grades 1 to 8

Summer Sports offers general sports experiences to meet the needs of campers who are multi-sport athletes. Many children are still discovering where their interest and expertise exist in sports so this varied program will give campers entering grades one to eight the opportunity to progress their skills in multiple sports and have choices during the camp day. We will play traditional sports like soccer, basketball, and tennis, while mixing in other fun activities and games to keep things fresh. There will be something for every athlete, from aspiring basketball stars to capture the flag aficionados. Campers will get a free swim period each day.

We will create number-themed art projects, explore the habitats on and around our campus, and play games along the way.
