For youngsters interested in honing their skills in a particular sport, camps are available in:

For kids who want to try a variety of sports in one week, a field sports camp offers a different sport each day.

A two-week long Super Sport Camp is offered for those who want to experience a sport as well as other activities such as roller skating and indoor rock climbing. Daily swimming lessons and a field trip also are included in the Super Sport Camp.

This week-long camp is designed to educate participants in nutrition, fitness and healthy lifestyles. Participants will also enjoy field and team games, yoga, hiking, swimming and other outdoor lifelong pursuits.
