Program Highlights

Two sports will be offered each day, Monday through Thursday. There will be instruction, skill development and team competition in each sport daily. Skill contests will take place throughout the summer. Teams will be assembled based on age, skill level and desire of the camper. Every Tuesday and Thursday campers will attend swim. Experienced teachers and coaches will work directly with the campers on a daily basis to foster self-confidence, sportsmanship and good competitive habits.

The camp fee covers all regularly scheduled activities and instruction, including Friday treats and a camp T-shirt. Penn Charter will provide all equipment for campers. Personal equipment is optional but encouraged due to covid-19 safety.
