Sports Camp

Our Co-ed sports camp program is designed so campers can focus on their athletic skill development while enjoying indoor and outdoor recreational time playing ALL sports. Our sports camp motto is “Sportsmanship”. The scheduling philosophy provides sports activities each day (i.e. basketball, football, hockey, baseball, soccer, gaga, karate, etc.) with a specialty activity (arts & crafts, Israeli Culture) as well as swimming for a well-rounded day. Kindergarten and 1st Grade campers will participate in Camp Shalom specialties each day. For 2nd grade and above is ALL SPORTS ALL THE TIME! Each week campers will participate in a different sports clinic led by local high school and/or professional coaches. These clinics teach campers the basic fundamentals and rules while encouraging them to participate in a variety of sports regardless of skill level. All sports campers will be given a reversable jersery to wear for the Friday big game!

 


The Camp Shalom Sports program will feature more sports instruction and skill development. 

A philosophy that we call MADE

  • Maximum Activity (no one wants to spend their summer waiting on the side lines)
  • Attitude (through sports, we develop children’s self-confidence & leadership skills)
  • Development (It does not matter how experienced your child is in sports, all sessions will challenge the more skilled player and the novice so both feel they have achieved success)
  • Enjoyment (we’re all here to have fun, right?)

Each week sports camp focuses on a different sport of the week allowing campers to be exposed to even more sports throughout the summer. At the end of each week campers will get the opportunity to test their new skills by participating in the BIG GAME! Sports include: Soccer, Basketball, Baseball, Lacrosse and Track & Field.

Our Sports Camp maintains an encouraging, positive and professional environment where your child will always have FUN!


This summer campers will be a part of their age appropriate camp units in special activities at camp such as field trips, overnights, late nights and camp-wide special events.
