Summer Camp

June - July - August

Blue Moose Sports Camp is available for all incoming 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th graders.

First, second and third grade campers will spend the first hour learning and practicing basic skills. In the second hour, they will play games utilizing those skills. In the third hour, they will join the older campers and play more advanced games, using those skills and practicing teamwork skills.

Fourth, fifth, and sixth grade campers will spend the first hour with team building/trust activities. In the second hour, they will play team games that will focus on game play and strategy. In the third hour, they will join with the younger students and play games; utilizing team building/trust skills and being positive role models for the younger campers.

We believe that by adding the younger children, it will help develop a more solid community, as well as helping to teach the children how to be positive role models at any age. Furthermore, we believe that these age groups will benefit from both skill development and team building/trust activities.
