Summer Camp: The perfect way to try a new sport

    By: ActivityTree

    Camps are not only a great way to keep kids active during the summer, they are the perfect opportunity to try a new sport before deciding to commit to a league or full season.

    For younger children, multi-sport programs introduce preschoolers to several different sports allowing you to assess their interests (and skills) by sport.  Camps for younger children are typically an hour or less to ensure the camp does not run longer than their attention span.

    Older children can use summer camps as a way to try something new.  Camps are offered for traditional sports like baseball, soccer and basketball as well as swimming, dance, gymnastics, horseback riding, martial arts, fencing, lacrosse, tennis, golf, volleyball, archery and so much more.  Your child may just discover her passion!  Even if he doesn’t, he is sure to benefit from the physical activity and social interaction.
