Colorado State University’s Youth Sports Camps Registration Opens

Colorado State University’s Youth Sports Camps, sponsored by the Department of Health and Exercise Science, are now open for 2007 registration.

The program is a 10-week day camp involving fun sports and health education activities for children and youth ages 6-14. Camps run from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday. The 2007 camp season begins on Monday, June 4, and ends Friday, Aug. 10, on the Colorado State campus.

Camp activities include one-week sessions in baseball, basketball, inline hockey, soccer, softball, tennis and volleyball. In addition, the FunLIFE (Learning to Improve Fitness and Eating) camp will be featured. This camp combines sports and physical activity with lessons in healthful eating and lifestyles. The Youth Sports Camps also will offer the Field Sport Sampler camp that allows campers to get a small taste of several sports over a short period of time.

As in past years, the Youth Sports Camps will include the two-week long Super Sport camp. The Super Sport camp includes sports instruction as well as activities such as rock climbing, roller skating and field trips.

All one-week camps – except tennis – cost $150 for the camper’s first week and $140 per week for each additional week for that camper or any other camper in the same family. The two-week long Super Sports Camp costs $280 and $270 for additional weeks. The tennis camp is $60 and $55 for additional weeks.

Participants can save $5 per session by registering before the May 11 early registration deadline. Full payment or a $50 deposit is required for each session. Refunds cannot be processed for $10 or less. There is a $15 rescheduling fee to change sessions and a non-refundable $30 cancellation fee for all camps.

     The Youth Sports Camps provide hands-on experience and research opportunities for Colorado State students and staff while also promoting the benefits of physical activity and healthy lifestyles for youths. The camps help the Department of Health and Exercise Science reach the goal of decreasing the prevalence of childhood obesity and inactive lifestyles.
