From June 20th - June 29th, SCORES poet-athletes took part in our summer camp. Every morning, from 9:00 - 11:30 am, campers gathered at the Douglas Park Nike Turf Field to develop new soccer skills, play games, and most importantly, have fun! Each day of camp had a different theme including passing, dribbling, and shooting, so that the kids could work on one skill at a time with their coaches.
During their down time, the campers worked on writing exercises, art projects, and played team building games. They learned about the World Cup and all of the countries involved with their Panini books. Each camper also got to design their very own World Cup soccer jersey. When it got too hot to play soccer, the kids went to the waterpark nearby to cool off and have fun on the playground. When asked what their favorite part of camp was, the kids had a wide variety of answers including, scrimmaging, learning new skills, the water balloon fight, snacks, and Coach Dean. On the last day of camp we celebrated with a big bbq, and everyone got to take home their own soccer ball thanks to Hunt4Soccer. We had so much fun at camp this year, and can’t wait to see everyone back again next year!
