SLAM Sports and Leadership Camp offers students a chance to enjoy competitive play while participating in leadership training. This camp is for students who want an overall physical fitness and mult-sport camp experience.
Each afternoon is divided into three periods, including fitness training and various sports and games. After having taught the rules and basic skills of each game, counselors and supervisors will move out of the spotlight to allow campers to choose and organize their own games. This process gives students a chance to take ownership of their own play and make the decisions necessary for a successful game.
Cost: $180 per session (includes camp T-shirt)
