A highlight of Appleby’s summer offerings each year, Exploring the Sports Camp gives campers an opportunity to try their hand at a wide variety of sports, games, and team challenges. Blending instruction, competition and fun challenges creates a great experience for all participants. Our staff is an exceptional collection of certified teachers, instructors, assistants and volunteers who entertain/educate daily. Exploring the Sports provides a fun introduction to many traditional sports including soccer, volleyball, swimming, softball, basketball, cricket, floor hockey, badminton, flag football and touch rugby through modified game play and skill-building sessions. Co-operative tasks and challenges help these developing athletes to gain an appreciation of teamwork, adaptability, and respect for instruction and rules of play. Campers also will work on a selection of universal sports-related skills through co-operative drills and games such as flag tag, dodgeball, capture the flag, team relay races and benchball! Our aim for this camp is to nurture an appreciation of sport and provide an environment where all campers achieve success regardless of their athletic ability.
Grouped depending on numbers, age and ability, participants also realize measurable gains in coordination, confidence and appreciation for various sports and games. Also included is a hot lunch daily and recreational swim time a few times a week. Appleby campers get a chance to enjoy the use of amazing facilities including our many playing fields, the gymnasium, squash courts and indoor pool.
