Summer after summer, year after year, campers say goodbye to family and friends and welcome in a new home and lifestyle. This change of scenery, pace, and location offer an invaluable opportunity to learn from others and about themselves. Close relationships are quickly formed, and these bonds have proven to stand the test of time. Their new companions share every aspect of camp life. They live together, eat together, train together, and grow together. The camaraderie is palpable, and seems to happen overnight.
The counselors and coaches at Camp All-Star
help make this possible by creating a comfortable, safe environment in which the athletes work hard, make mistakes, and progress as individuals, while maintaining a team mentality. The schedule at All-Star allows for cross training from the basketball court and soccer
field to the weight room and hockey rink, and all places in between, helping avoid muscle overuse and abuse, promoting the entire athlete. Coaches offer pre-breakfast runs and workouts and pre-bedtime ab routines that perfectly supplement the training on the fields.
Equally as important, however, is the ability of the staff to promote mental toughness, resilience, and preparation through regular coaching points and more formal after-dinner life lessons. While there is certainly no substitute for the daily physical rigor, no one overlooks the impact of a strong psyche.
The ability to overcome obstacles on the playing field is greatly transferable to the classroom and daily routine away from camp. This grit allows athletes to accept and move beyond momentary failures, unlocking their innate ability to fine tune their approach and maximize potential.
The staff at Camp All-Star
understands and celebrates a holistic approach to every camper's development in an effort to maximize sustainable success on and off the fields, even after the summer months end.
