Overnight Campers receive
high quality instruction in their sport from caring and skilled coaches, giving them a unique opportunity to expand their skills and improve their game. Staying overnight provides campers the opportunity to receive more individualized coaching in their sport, enjoy more traditional camp experiences and build strong relationships with teammates and build lasting friendships with peers who share their love of their sport.
Day Campers get all of the same quality instruction as Overnight Campers to expand their skills and improve their game. For campers who may be wary of staying overnight this provides the perfect opportunity to fall in love with the camp, try a Thursday overnight, and come back for the overnight version!
Campers will enjoy our beautiful 32–acre facility located on the shores of McGrath Pond. Paddle Boarding, Canoeing, Archery, Swimming, Climbing Wall, Many High and Low Ropes Course Elements all complement the sports training. As campers learn best from a well rounded and varied experience your child will not only receive skills in his or her sport, but will have recreation time to learn a new activity, build camaraderie, and play in the lake!
