JCYS Jon Vegosen Champ Camp provides a traditional summer camp for children that attend District 112 summer school in the morning. Champ Camp’s curriculum is full of fun and focuses on the development of confidence and self-esteem, healthy lifestyle habits, teamwork skills and an appreciation of athletics and sportsmanship. Spirit abounds with camp-wide activities like the Olympics, Color Wars, and Talent Show. Daily activities include USTA tennis, Red Cross swim lessons, cooking and nutrition education, arts and crafts, theater, dance and more.
Perfect for children that are just learning to pick up a racket and wanting to learn more, Champ Camp counselors use Ten and Under Tennis instruction, the United States Tennis Association’s preferred method of beginner tennis instruction.
Aided by appropriately sized rackets, four different types of tennis balls, a reduced court size and a shorter net, participants develop a foundation of skills in an approachable and less intimidating way.
In the Lil’s state-of-the-art swimming pool, campers enjoy daily Red Cross Learn-to-Swim lessons followed by free swim. With two shallow ends – one of which is only two feet deep – the Lil’ is perfect for beginning swimmers.
Champ Camp provides fun and tasty hands-on cooking lessons with our nutrition specialist, Era Green. We strive to build a strong foundation of healthy eating habits early in life so that campers can go home with the tools and resources needed to prepare healthy and delicious meals at home!
Our Friday Fun Days end each week with a burst of energy and spontaneity! Campers look forward to all-camp activities like Olympics and College Wars, designed to optimize camp spirit, camaraderie and teamwork.
