Here are the basics of what goes into an AMAZING week!
Kids entering grades 1-8, split into "divisions" for developmentally appropriate competitions!
Monday-Friday from 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM (limited availability for an 8:00 AM early drop-off option).
All of our "coaches" are licensed teachers with extensive experience both teaching and coaching.
We are not a glorified "recess" style camp, our days are highly structured with lesson plans involving activities which are designed to elicit specific outcomes.
Unlike most camps that focus on only one activity, we play a variety of games, take field trips, and fully engage every camper in team- and character-building experiences that will instill confidence, teach life lessons, and promote strong character.
These activities will largely be unfamiliar to the campers, which helps level the playing field and prove every camper's value (brains and/or brawn) to their team!
Mission: BUILD CHARACTER THROUGH SPORTS AND GAMES!
Sandlot Camp is designed to promote physical fitness while challenging personal growth in areas of character (sportsmanship, integrity, perseverance, and teamwork).
Each day we use activities, challenges, and lessons to help teach these values.
By the end of the week we want each camper to know what it truly means to be a leader, a reliable teammate, how to set goals and how to move forward to achieve their goals.
We want every camper to realize that they are strong, important, and capable of accomplishing their dreams through hard work and perseverance.
Every staff member is hand selected and they will put THEIR WHOLE HEART into YOUR kids!
We LOVE what we do and want EVERYONE to have an enjoyable, positive, life-changing experience!!!
There is no better joy in sports than just playing for the fun of it...we want to hear laughter and excitement!
We want kids to know it is okay to make a mistake, even with best efforts, just learn from it and keep going...daily conversations!
No one at camp is going pro tomorrow, but today we are meant to enjoy, and be thankful for, the abilities and opportunities placed in front of us!
The lessons learned at Sandlot Camp will stay with these kids for a lifetime!!!
