This program provides the ultimate sports challenge for the young athlete. With a daily focus on dodgeball and ga-ga, campers learn new skills while cycling through a collection of other sports every week, from baseball and rugby to capture the flag, kickball, and ultimate frisbee. The Dodgeball major places a heavy emphasis on conditioning, team building, sportsmanship, and coordination.
Gymnastics comes naturally to children, with their innate need to move and perform. Combining endurance, flexibility, and coordination, gymnastics is an excellent way to stay fit and build self-esteem. With a focus on basic gymnastic techniques and movements, this major teaches campers physical and mental aspects of the gymnastic arts.
Open to all levels.
