Would you trust your child's well-being to a doctor with no medical degree? Of course not. In the same vein, why then would anyone make the same mistake when selecting a sports camp in Maine for their child? Only 15% of overnight summer camps are currently accredited by the American Camp Association. This accreditation is accomplished only by complying with up to 300 health, program quality, and safety standards. It is just one reason to select Camp All Star (CAS), a fully accredited sports camp, in the scenic Belgrade Lakes Region of Maine.

Have you heard about the amazing baseball camps that Camp All-Star has to offer this summer? Here are 5 Top Reasons why you'll want to attend:
We are so fortunate at Camp All-Star to be able to utilize the Alfond Athletics Center during the summer each year at camp. This state-of-the-art Athletics Center facility is perfect for basketball, ice hockey, fitness/strength training and conditioning, climbing wall, as well as the occasional camp favorite, dodgeball game. The campers use this amazing facility throughout the day (rain or shine) and for many of our fun evening programs.
Once the school bell rings on the final day, boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 16 embrace the long weeks of summer vacation. Where will your kids spend their summer? When you send them to overnight summer sports camps, they not only improve upon their athletic skills, but also learn important life lessons.
Flag football is a popular and fun sport where you still get to play the game, without being tackled! The goal is to grab the flag of your opponent and stop them from gaining additional yardage on the field. You will learn how to make the proper routes as a receiver as well as focus on different offensive and defensive plays. Players can be the quarterback where they are responsible for leading the team and driving them down the field for a touchdown.
Popular in the United States and around the world, field hockey is a fun and challenging sport! Two teams of eleven players attempt to hit a small, plastic ball into a goal using a wooden stick. Each team has one goalkeeper, who is allowed to touch the ball with their body in the shooting circle. No other players are allowed to contact the ball except with their stick. If a player kicks the ball, possession is immediately awarded to the opposing team. There are other rules designed to promote safety and keep the flow of the game moving.
At Camp All-Star, we believe strongly in teaching the same values at camp that campers’ parents do at home. During part of the 30-40 minutes of intensive sports instruction for each activity, coaches will relate one of our core values to the campers: honesty, courage, kindness, dependability, unselfishness, and sportsmanship. By instilling honesty, for example, children have the opportunity to call their own fouls in basketball. By instilling unselfishness, campers must pass the ball three times before shooting the soccer ball. We always show sportsmanship after each competitive intercamp game by making sure to genuinely shake the other player’s hand from the opposing team.
Volleyball is a sport enjoyed throughout the world by girls and boys, women and men, and people of all ages! Beach and indoor volleyball were among the most popular events at the 2012 London Olympics with loud and energetic crowds cheering their favorite teams. If you want to improve your volleyball skills this summer, look no further than volleyball camp at Camp All-Star in the beautiful Belgrade Lakes region of Maine!
An estimated 40 million American children participate in organized sports today. We started Camp All-Star, a premier sports camp, 12 years ago for many reasons. Research shows that children who participate in sports do better academically and are less likely to experiment with drugs. At Camp All-Star, each day is filled with activities that support strong fit bodies and a healthy lifestyle. Playing sports reinforces fundamental values. At camp, we encourage and reward honesty, courage, leadership, compassion, respect, self-discipline, sportsmanship, dependability, courtesy, and kindness. We want to provide our campers with the life skills to become leaders and believe in fostering an all-around growth experience.
