Athletics at Camp Emerson
With all of our athletics programs, campers take instructional lessons, practice and play intercamp games against camps in the area. Camp Emerson prides itself on maintaining outstanding sportsmanship and teamwork ahead of a “Killer Mentality.” (Campers who are not interested in sports are not required to play them.)
Only the best equipment and instruction for this popular sport. Two ranges – one for beginners and the other for advanced archers. Learn all the techniques of the sport with emphasis on range safety. Sight along the bridge of your nose, judge the wind, and fire a bulls eye.
Our instructors will teach you the basics or help you improve your ball handling, dribbling, rebounding, passing, shooting and defense. Learn the pick and roll and other plays. Enjoy various basketball related games, clinics and activities day and night on our lit courts and indoor sport center.
Baseball is huge summer activity. Campers receive individual and team instruction in hitting, defense, pitching, catching and situational aspects of the game. Use the pitching machine for batting practice. Follow your favorite team with the morning Baseball report.
Enguard. Learn everything from Step, Jab, Parry to Lunge. We use tipped foils and full protective gear. This is a very popular thinking-person’s sport that you won’t find everywhere.
Classes design their own emphasis from basic training, pilates, aerobics, yoga, general conditioning and more. Each camper is encouraged to work at their own pace and set their own individual goals.
Discover the importance of grip, aim, posture and ball position as you practice on our driving range and putting green. Golf classes also go to the local country club for 18 holes.
Work on your tumbling, as well as balance beam, uneven parallel bars, and vault. Gymnasts from Olympic level 1 to 8 have trained here. Our gymnastics instructors are “unparalleled.”
Improve self-discipline and enhance self-esteem and confidence. Campers train in a number of martial arts styles including karate, tae kwon do, and various elements of self defense. Our emphasis is on developing the mind, body and spirit. An ideal opportunity to improve your skills or experience martial arts for the first time.
Our beautiful arena is tucked in the woods just behind the boys’ bunks. Passing, shooting, stick handling, and defense are all covered.
Work on the fundamentals including attack, defense, goal tending and ball handling. Lots of time for scrimmages and intercamp games.
4 hard and 2 clay courts and no waiting to play. Campers receive top notch personalized instruction at all levels. We guarantee lots of play time. Tennis ladders and intercamp tournaments too.
Practice setting, digging, spiking, jump serving, blocking and dunking while playing this popular Emerson sport. There are always pickup games where all are welcome.
