Junior 241

For boys and girls going into grades 1 and 2 (fall of 2018)
While the times and dates of Junior 241 are the same as our traditional camp, the programming itself is age-appropriately different. In keeping in line with the “241 Crossover Effect” – we see it as so important that these youngest athletes crossover to our traditional program having had the most positive of experiences. With that in mind – our staff focuses on infusing skill instruction into serious fun! We want their first introduction to multiple-sports to be one where they leave asking for more! Junior campers don’t choose sports - we bring the sports to them!

What is Universal Sports?

Universal Sports: Campers love that they never know what they'll get each day. Each year it varies and often involves community partnerships. Maybe its golf offered by First Tee. Maybe it's fencing offered by a local club. Or the Israeli dodgeball game known as GaGa. Whatever it is, you can rest assured it's incredibly fun and the skills learned crossover to our traditional sport offerings.
