Camp runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Transportation and before and after extended days are available for additional fees. Camps are geared to ages 5 to 16.
The individual camps choices are: basketball by Karl-Anthony Towns or Sue Bird, Paul Annacone’s tennis, Jozy Altidore’s soccer, Max Seibald’s lacrosse and Brad Guzan’s goalkeeper academies.
The athletes named in the camps either visit or provide video messages for the campers. Says Seibald of the camp he’s sending inspirational messages to: “It’s just another outlet for kids to have a good summer experience playing lacrosse.”
College and professional coaches and athletes lead kids in skill development and game play and reinforce the importance of teamwork through daily team-building exercises.
