*Ages 8-14* Sports camp includes a wide variety of sports and activities that cater to the athlete focused on improving skill level, overall health and wellness, and knowledge of many different movement forms during game play.

Each day will include games and instruction in a variety of major sports as well as "lifetime athletic activities." Games like football, baseball, soccer, cross country, volleyball, European handball, kickball, and basketball are played each week. Also, lifetime sport/ adventure activity games like dodgeball, capture the flag, Cavatta ball, and flag tag are played as well. Every morning, to start camp, we run a fitness circuit that provides instruction and drills to improve agility, flexibility, quickness, and strength. Lastly, the athletes will have access to the on-site heated outdoor pool for both aquatic exercise and rehab along with "cooling off."
