Recreational Activities Description

Cheerleading and Dance
are taught by our dance instructors. Both classes have a final performance at the end of the two-week session. These performances are held in the intramural gym prior to the start of our regular camp day.

Fitness Training
includes a variety of high- and low-impact aerobic and muscle-strengthening activities. Campers use hand weights, step boxes, exercise bands, medicine balls, and more. Campers learn how to use pedometers to track their steps and distance while jogging and power walking. Depending on the group’s interests, instructors may also offer water workouts in the pool and lessons on nutrition. Note: We do not use weight-lifting equipment.

Game of the Day
includes activities for the camper who likes to play team sports but wants some variety. The campers will play a different team sport on a daily basis. Many of these games are well known, such as kickball or volleyball, while others, such as Tseg Ball, campers may play for the very first time.

Indoor Soccer/Broom Hockey
takes place inside the intramural gym. The smaller space makes for fast-paced action and lots of scoring. Broom hockey is like street hockey, but is played with soft sticks.

Karate
is taught by a professional black belt instructor. Participants work toward receiving different color belts, based on their skill and technique, at the completion of the two-week session.

Recreational Swim
is for campers who are at least Red Cross Level 3 swimmers. Participants are tested for basic swimming ability on the first day of the session. Campers who do not pass the basic test will be placed in lessons at the discretion of the swim director.

Sport Pals
is an all-afternoon option for our youngest campers. It includes daily swim lessons, a variety of recreational activities, games, read-aloud time, and a Popsicle at break. This group of campers remains with the same counselors in a nurturing environment for the entire afternoon. Sport Pals campers who choose the early-dismissal option will still get their daily swim lesson.

Swim Lessons
are taught by The Summer Place swim instructors and follow the Red Cross Learn-to-Swim curriculum. Swim lessons are held in the outdoor pool at the Sports Center, weather permitting.

Tennis
is for campers of all abilities. Instructors will assess the campers on the first few days of each session and plan appropriate activities based on their skill levels.

Yard Games
will feature activities for campers looking for something other than team sports. We will have different activities every day, but unlike Game of the Day, they will not be team sports. Some of the planned activities are bocce, slip ‘n slide, and hide and seek.
