Coaches make the fundamentals fun and help campers build confidence and learn life skills. With a male and female instructor for every sport, kids can be what they see. Sports camps help kids learn teamwork, get active and can lead to higher test scores. Those are just a few reasons camps are good for kids. Here are a few more.
Started in 2021, it’s put on each year by the Greater Columbus Sports Foundation with lots of help from community partners.
SERVING THE COMMUNITY
Every kid deserves a chance to play. Studies show that active children have higher test scores and self-esteem. Community Youth Camp equips kids with athletic fundamentals and build life skills transferable to daily life.
From cycling to yoga, Community Youth Camp makes sports accessible. At least 50% of our spots are reserved for children on scholarship – who may not otherwise have access to play sports. Lessons of responsibility and personal wellness shouldn’t come at a cost. For those who need it, we share the ball.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Campers typically play four sports each day. Two in the morning, then a break for lunch and a life lesson, followed by two more sports in the afternoon.
Community Youth Camp is led by coaches and volunteers from local organizations, colleges and high schools. Leaders will guide the campers through the day and coaches bring their expertise to each sport. Coaches offer fun and focused instructions for their sport.
