The department of exercise and sport science at Colorado State University will offer a variety of sport camps for children this summer.
Participants can choose from one-week camps for soccer, basketball, baseball, tennis, softball and volleyball; swim lessons; and two-week super sport camps that include sport instruction, arts and crafts and a field trip. Programs are designed to allow campers to develop individual skills in a fun and safe environment. Age range for campers varies depending on the camps chosen, but typically includes ages 6-13.
"The camps are structured with individual ability levels in mind," said Vinson Sutlive, co-director of the camp program. "Our goal is to provide a caring environment where each camper is having fun and challenged to move forward. When kids enjoy a physical activity, it’s the beginning of a lifelong approach to healthy living."
The majority of instructors are Colorado State graduate and undergraduate students majoring in exercise and sport science. Instructors are trained to apply sound teaching and coaching principles that emphasize personal success and fun for each camper.
Multiple sessions for each sport will be offered throughout the summer. Full-day sport camp sessions cost $100 per week and half-day sessions cost $50 per week. Prices vary for super sport camps and swim lessons. Pre-registration is ongoing until May 1. Regular registration begins May 2, and will continue through the first day of each camp. A discount is available for preregistration.
