Are you looking for a fun camp for your child this summer? Register your child for Case Western Reserve University’s National Youth Sports Program (NYSP) — a five-week program for youth ages 10 to 16. Once enrolled, youth have an opportunity to participate in a variety of sports, including badminton, volleyball, football, tennis, soccer, softball, golf, aerobics/dance, kickball, track and field, basketball, and swimming. Campers are given a chance to rotate between programs each week to give them maximum exposure to at least four distinct sports.
Participation in swimming is mandatory for all campers because it is an important skill that can save lives and has life-long impact. Special emphasis is placed on teaching the skills involved with a sport that can be performed on a regular basis now and when they become adults.
All campers receive a maximum of 15 hours of educational programming to enhance academic and social awareness. Sessions include personal health, nutrition, drug and alcohol prevention, disease prevention, personal hygiene, grooming, career opportunities, computer skills, and math/science. The math/science program provides a minimum of 7.5 hours of exposure to environmental science as well as other math and science disciplines. It also incorporates hands-on activities to cultivate positive attitudes toward math/science education and careers.
