A summer camp for ages 5-10, Ultimate Sports Camp emphasizes skill development and fundamental knowledge of various sports. 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.
