Super Summer Sports Camp 2016

Super Summer Sports Camp 2016


The University of Chicago Super Summer Sports Camp is a recreational sports camp for children of all ability levels. Campers will learn and compete in team sports, including basketball, lacrosse, soccer, softball and volleyball. Campers will also take part in a variety of traditional kids games. Individual skills such as tennis and archery will be featured. Team-building, self-awareness and relationship skills will also be a focus.

The 2016 camp will include our traditional swim program in the Myers-McLoraine Pool, along with a varety of fun and engaging water activities sessions.

The campers will participate with current coaches and student-athletes who aim to create a positive and encouraging experience for all.

We work to educate campers and prevent teasing and bullying, particularly in an environment where children of diverse skill levels and backgrounds participate together.

We stress the values of teamwork, sportsmanship and giving one's best effort on a daily basis.
