Campers get three different sport activities daily on a rotating basis, depending on the weather, facility, and interests of the group. Our goal is to expose campers to all different types of activities in a fun, safe environment.

JUNIORS (our younger campers) play a wide variety of traditional and non-traditional sports with at least one choice period each day. Some juniors have little experience with sports and enjoy our noncompetitive games; others are eager athletes who strive to win and learn great sportsmanship. TIC offers a mix of both so all campers can enjoy the high spirits on the field and in the gym!

SENIORS (our older campers) also get three activities each day, including a daily choice period. In addition, seniors choose a “Focus” sport after the first day, allowing daily instruction, practice, and development of new skills and techniques in the sport of their choosing for one hour each day.  Focus sports are usually traditional sports such as soccer, basketball, volleyball, and more. By the end of the session, senior campers will have improved their skills within their focus sport.

At TIC, there is something for everyone; even kids who haven’t had the most positive experiences with team sports. We are known for our crazy, original games based on popular trends.. Some examples include: Hunger Games, Quidditch, Gaga, Jugball, Bob the Builder, and “Minecraft.” These games are designed to get kids moving, excited, and involved in a safe and comfortable athletic atmosphere.We aren’t all fun and games – oh wait, yes we are! Basketball, Soccer, Ultimate Frisbee, Flag Football, Volleyball, Street/Floor Hockey, and Handball are also some of the popular traditional sports that campers play on a rotating basis. Competition is a part of any sport, but our focus is to make sure campers are moving and having a blast, whether it is a traditional sport or crazy game.
