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. Campers should bring a water bottle with their name on it each day. Each camper will receive a camp t-shirt during their first week of camp.
