All campers are required to have a working (geared) bike, bike lock, helmet, water bottle and backpack. Beginners are welcome to enroll in the Intro to Turf & Surf Camp to try out the camp at a slower pace.
Ultimate Sports Camp

In addition to the classics of soccer, baseball, and basketball, campers will have the chance to experience unique sports such as Ultimate Frisbee, Kickball, Lacrosse, Capture the Flag, and Wiffle Ball. Once participants acquire a basic skills foundation, we'll implement their learnings in small sided games. On the last day of camp, campers meet at The Hub at Berens Park for sand volleyball, mini golf and batting cages.
NEW IN 2023 - Ultimate Sports Camps: All Stars! These sessions will feature all the same skill development as our traditional Ultimate Sports Camp, but with added challenges and more intensity.
