Is my child the right age for Sports Camp?

If your child is entering grades 2-5 in the fall, then yes, they can be a Sports Camp camper!

If your child turns seven after June 24 and you would like to sign them up, you will need to contact our registration team for an age override, as our system recognizes ages by the start of all summer programs on June 24 rather than specific weekly camp sessions.
