On Your Mark, Get Set, Go for J Camp Sports
J Camps and sports go together like bagels and cream cheese; it’s hard to imagine one without the other. While campers love playing games, we see the benefits that come from participating in athletics in camp – being active, honing skills, enhancing fitness, making friends and fostering sportsmanship and personal growth.
We’re so passionate about the benefits of sports and fitness that we’ve grown our sports options this summer with brand new programs and enhanced athletic experiences. From yoga to competitive league play and everything in between, the additions to our day and overnight camps offer more choices for campers of all ability levels and interests.
