Junior 241

For boys and girls going into grades 1 and 2 (fall of 2019)
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!
