About Camp

2-4-1 Sports is rooted in PLAY!  At 2-4-1, children have the opportunity to sample multiple sports and learn for themselves how playing one sport increases their ability and confidence in another. While many specialty camps are filled with laps, lines and lectures – at 2-4-1 Sports we focus on getting kids moving and playing all day. All attendees play at least 3 sports each day and we encourage all campers to try at least one sport they’ve never tried before. “Life’s 2 Short 4 Just 1 Sport” is more than a tagline for us — it’s a cultural shift that drives our programs to help families recognize that a lifelong love of activity starts with a diverse, play-filled childhood.

For details on Division 1 (rising K) and Division 2 (rising grades 1-2), scroll down to see Junior 2-4-1

All Division 3 campers (going into grades 3-9) choose three sports from our 10 fun-filled options (see below)! When campers arrive for our opening ceremonies, they’ll receive the order of their sports that morning based on their choices.

Baseball, Basketball, 2-4-1 Lacrosse, Field Hockey, Flag Football,  Soccer, Tennis, Volleyball, and 2-4-Run and Universal Sports.

When registering, please consult with your child about their choices as it is an incredible task for us to build our master schedule and many of our staffing and scheduling decisions are based on camper sport-choices.  Preference changes after registration, if they can be accommodated, incur a small fee.

If your child is not sure what they want their third sport to be or want to experience an even greater variety, we recommend Universal Sports. See description below, but this will allow your camper to be exposed to at least 7 sports each week!

Junior 2-4-1

Camp is broken into 3 age group divisions (note that “Rising” for each of the following is what grade your child will be in Fall of 2023)

Division 1- Rising Kindergartners 

Division 2 – Rising 1st and 2nd grade

Division 3 – Rising 3rd through 9th grade (please know that this will be our last season with rising grade 9). 

While the times and dates of Division 1 and Divison 2 are the same as our traditional camp, the programming itself is age-appropriately different. In keeping in line with the “2-4-1 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 (Divison 1 and 2) don’t choose sports – we bring the sports to them!  (Campers in these Divisions do not need to bring any of their own equipment)
Division 1 and 2 campers have their own distinct directors and counselors.  The programs are run separetly from each other so please know we are not able to honor any sibling or friend requests outside of each other’s division.  We also can not make any exceptions regarding these grade requirements for divisions.
Please know that Division 1 campers must have participated in a full day school or camp experience (at least 6 hours) prior to attending 2-4-1 Sports.  We have a very active curriculum and it’s our experience that those who have not had a full day school or camp experience get overwhelmed quickly.  We need  for parents to document during the application process where your child has had a prior full day experience.  Campers of this age must of course be potty trained.

Sport Choices

“Life’s 2 Short 4 Just 1 Sport”
While most of our Sport Choices don’t need explanation, we realize a few of our names do.

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.

2-4-Run: Running is the root of all sports. This co-ed offering shows campers just how fun working hard and getting fit can be. Teaching proper running form and encouraging improvement, campers leave realizing just how enjoyable running really is!

2-4-1 Lacrosse: 2-4-1 Lacrosse is a hybrid, street style, small sided version of lacrosse drawing on the skills and strategies of many different sports. This fast paced, fun-filled version of the game does not require any equipment besides a stick (can be boys or girls) and a ball (most often we use a tennis ball, but sometimes supplement with a similar weighted, but slightly softer ball).  Team sizes range anywhere from 2v2 to no larger than 5v5.  There are no designated goalies. In fact – “the goals” can vary from game to game.  Sometimes, depending on skill level, the goal is a traditional pop up goal, or it can be an “X” marked on a tree, a large orange cone, or even a completed pass into an “end zone”.  Advanced, intermediate and brand new players from both the men’s and women’s version of lacrosse love and benefit from this pick-up style of play that can be played anywhere.  In the same way ice hockey players love street hockey, basketball players love playground hoops, and soccer players love futsal, this modified version of lacrosse is a great way to introduce the sport to beginners and improve the skill of advanced players during the summer heat.

Before/After Care

Before and After Care is available for those families that may need to drop their camper(s) off early or pick them up late in order for them to be able to attend camp.

All campers will be supervised by a member of the 2-4-1 Staff and have the opportunity for continued play.  Pick up and drop off locations are in the Hoffman Field House each day.

Before care: 7:30-9:00 ($60 for the week)

After care: 3:00-4:30 ($60 for the week)

Can add either/both during the registration process.

If choosing to do single days (not committing to the full week), then each segment is $15.00 and can be purchased/funded through your campers canteen account.

Lunch/Canteen

Kingswood Oxford has a beautfiul dining hall adjacent to many of the fields we play on.  It is where we host lunch and our canteen (camp store).  Campers have the option to bring lunch (that gets refrigerated upon arrival) or to purchase lunch (usually 2 slices of pizza, a sport drink and a snack).  You can purchase lunch for the week during registration or you can purchase as many individucal days as you choose once camp begins.

Campers also love attending our canteen – items include an assortment of drinks, snacks and treats.  You have the option to prefund your canteeen account at registration or fund/replenish throughout the week at camp.

We suggest talking to your child about limits at the canteen as we use a debit/credit system.
