Kids Sports Camps and the Underlying Benefits

Kids sports camps are also a great way to help keep children focused and mentally strong.

There are several obvious reasons why you should send your children to kids sports camps such as honing in on athletic skills and learning how to live a healthy lifestyle. However, there are also many other important reasons with underlying benefits as to why you should send your children to summer sports camps.

If applying to and getting accepted at private school this coming fall is on your agenda, then the process needs to starts now. Early spring is the best time to begin working on the application itself and perhaps the additional paperwork that accompanies it, such as the parent and student statements.

Countdown to Summer…

Summer Sleepaway Camp

By Colin Hutzler, Head Boys Counselor,
Camp All-Star

We all remember it. The agonizing anticipation as the second hand ever-so-slowly ticked one tock at a time. 57, 58, 59... freedom. The end of another school year, and the beginning of what was sure to be the best summer yet. For many students, it is hard to find the words to adequately describe the occasion. Elation? Relief? Excitement? And maybe, just maybe, a bit of trepidation to be stepping away from a comfortable, formal learning environment that opens doors for countless productive, positive futures.

The Wonderful World of Lacrosse Camp

Lacrosse at Camp All-StarIn a day and age where more and more children resort to indoor fun, rather than the outdoor games that their parents may have frequented as children, organized sport camps have never been more important. This shift from outdoor to indoor play means less neighborhood kids playing ball in the street.

It also means that children are not getting the exercise they desperately need and are becoming obese as a result of it. In a short excerpt from education.com: Today’s generation of children is fighting the worst obesity epidemic in history. Giving kids an excuse to exercise is reason enough to consider team sports. But calories aside, team sports have other benefits to kids—social, emotional and physical ones.

The benefit of sports camps extends beyond getting kids to get off their couches and outdoors again. The sheer selection of sports they have to choose from provides them with opportunities to discover and fall in love with sports they otherwise would never have tried, such as lacrosse. Lacrosse is one of the most underestimated sports in the country. Not only does lacrosse teach kids about the importance of being able to work on a team, but almost no other sport can rival it in terms of the amount of both finesse it requires, as well as physicality - a mixture of ballet and hockey would be the perfect way to describe it.

If more parents sent their children to go to general sports camps where one can try lacrosse, among many other sports in top-notch facilities, the youth of America will return to their roots as the physical and active beings humans were evolved to be! Get out on that lacrosse field during the summer months to perfect skills and stay fit. No reason to sit at home playing video games or sitting on Facebook all day. Go to summer sports camp!

If you would like to know more about some of the sports we have to offer or would want to explore our lacrosse camp, feel free to check us out.


Camp All Star: Prepare For the Future

Camp All Star will help build on all key elements needed to perform well in sports, as well as life itself.

In a recent interview with Peyton Manning, Dan Patrick asked the future Hall of Famer, "Can you have too much time to prepare?" His answer was, "No, especially for an opponent you don't know that well." Manning was referring to the Seattle Seahawks. This is sound advice, not only because it's coming from Manning, but because of what Patrick expressed the next day on his broadcast. The people who work with Peyton that they've never seen Manning so relaxed with the media.
