Our priority is to teach campers to love and enjoy being active. We provide an encouraging environment that makes learning sports fun and exciting. Campers enjoy the activities which creates a love for being active and the self confidence to try new things. They discover new abilities through games and play. Their enthusiasm and self-confidence grow along with their skills. At the end of the summer, campers leave camp proud of their accomplishments, ready to apply new skills to their daily lives.
This is a camper favorite…Robin Hood and Katniss beware! We teach safety and shooting techniques with a bow and arrow. All ages see success from just hitting the target to hitting the bulls eye.
Ball handling, defense, shooting, passing, and free throws are emphasized to develop a complete player.
Fundamentals of throwing, catching, hitting, fielding and base-running are taught to enhance the love of our national pastime.
