The 2-4-1 Philadelphia camp is a comprehensive Physical Literacy Development Program for students Grade 3-9 that blends the traditional 2-4-1 Sports camp model of sport sampling with TOP Self™ social emotional learning and character skill development.
2-4-1 Sports is rooted in PLAY! At 2-4-1 Philadelphia, 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 2 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.
At this camp, no special equipment is required as it will be provided by our staff. Children just need to come ready to play each day!
This program is offered for free to any child grades 3-9 who reside in the neighborhoods near the John Bartram HS Football Field in Southwest Philadelphia.
Just a typical day at 2•4•1 Philadelphia:
Camp is Monday through Friday. If dangerous weather is forecast for the entirity of camp, we will contact families that morning to let them know of any delays or cancellations.
Camp runs from 9-12 each day we’re in session.
