What factors set this camp apart from other camps?
What sets World Sports Camp apart is our COACHES! The World Sports Camp team of COACHES are knowledgeable, experienced in their sports and are at World Sports Camp for the primary purpose of making your child have the best summer sports experience possible.
With an extremely high return rate of our staff each summer, one of the highest in the industry, our camp culture seamlessly transitions from one year to the next. Developing new national and international friendships through sports and other camp activities, improves the quality of life for all involved.
As well, we have 60% of our athletes from the U.S. and 40% from 96 countries worldwide.
At World Sports Camp our sports instruction is taught by ability level in addition to age and grade. If an athlete is 11 years old, and has the ability level of a 14 year old, that athlete will play with the 14 year olds who have equal ability. The only time that this will not happen is when an athlete will be put in harm’s way because of the physical difference in size of the other athletes. In addition, if an athlete is 14 years old and has the ability level of an 11 year old, we will NEVER embarrass an athlete, therefore, we will put that athlete with other 14 year olds who are of the same level.
What is unique about the experience campers receive:
High Level sports instruction. Friendships from around the world. Memories that will last them a lifetime.
