Summer Sports Camps

Our FREE sports camps offer a fun and positive experience for your child's inner athlete. We will divide kids into groups based on age/ability level, and have a great time working on age-appropriate fundamentals that will incorporate fun competitions, games, races and scrimmages. Our camps are designed for kids ranging from the very beginner to the seasoned athlete. All kids can expect to improve their skill level! Please bring a sack lunch, snacks, water bottle, sunscreen and dress appropriately for the weather (layers). Space is limited in these camps so register early. E-13 and signed concussion form due at registration and must be sent to the Youth Athletics office.  Watch this page for future updates about camp schedules.
