CPSports Mini-Camps and Summer Program

Our philosophy is simple: kids want to have FUN, being outside is FUN, sports and games are FUN!  The Central Park Sports Summer Program provides outdoor athletic activity and instruction in a non-competitive, FUN environment to children ages 3-10.  Campers receive basic instruction from local coaches and college athletes in a variety of sports (soccer, baseball, basketball, volleyball, lacrosse, football etc.) as well as supervision in classic park games such as frisbee, capture the flag and more.  Emphasis is on having FUN and demonstrating good sportsmanship while learning the basic skills and rules of the games.

We meet on the East side at the playground on 72nd and 5th and on the West side inside 67th and CPW.  From there we walk (or skip or hop...) in to the sand volleyball court area where we have a mix of grass, dirt and hard court surfaces, not to mention the sand volleyball courts themselves, for our activities.  Campers are divided into 3 groups: ages 3-4, 5-7 and 8-10.  The older groups occasionally venture out to other field and court areas in the park.  Full day and half day programs are available.  The program runs Monday - Friday, weather permitting, or register for Monday - Thursday as in past years.  Rain days can be made up anytime throughout the summer.  See a typical schedule below.
