"Growing a Community of Everyday Heroes!" Olympia gives kids professional instruction and guidance to grow and excel – and to have fun while they do it! Choose from over 40 different programs! Campers receive personalized instruction from top university, college, school and club adult coaches, plus structured cabin time at our waterfront, high ropes course, zip line and more!
All sports camps seek to develop skills, and competition can, understandably, seem like a natural aspect of that process. Olympia, too, is certainly about skill development, though leadership navigates the competitive aspect particularly well—not shying from it, but placing it within a context of personal goals and goal setting. “It’s not about getting to the top of the climbing tower,” says Nicole Nicole Christamtsis, “it’s about getting higher than you did the day before. That’s an important lesson.” It is, and one that Olympia is very adept at delivering. Many campers are true keeners, arriving at camp with some very sport specific goals, and intending to build upon their prior expertise. That said, not all do, and there is a place for them here, too. For many campers, Olympia is an opportunity to try new things as much as it is building on existing skills. The programs are vast, with facilities to match, and the instructors bring professional coaching to all of them. The focus throughout is on building confidence, independence, interpersonal skills, encouraging campers to meet new people and try new things. The experience is challenging and active, in equal measure to recognition and reward.

WELCOME TO THE TEAM!
We would like to welcome Brendan Morris to our team as one of our Co-Directors of our Outdoor Education Program.
Brendan joins us all the way from Australia, and has been working with Olympia Sports Camp for 5 years, beginning in the summer of 2015. He began working as one of our ropes counsellors. After this, he started working for our Outdoor Education Centre during Spring and Fall, which is where his passion for educating children in outdoor life skills and leadership began to grow. The following two summers, he took on the role of Unit Leader and then became the Head of Unit Leaders for another two summers.
Working for Olympia over the last 5 years has helped Brendan gain an appreciation for how important our staff is to the success of camp in all seasons. He enjoys facilitating fun programs and activities for kids of all ages, as well as working with adults.
We are excited to have Brendan join our Olympia Family full time, and cannot wait to see him in action.
"I am very excited to begin my new role as Co-Director of Outdoor Education at Olympia. I am excited to work with staff and kids in a way which is fun, meaningful and teaching them to grow while enjoying the outdoors".
