Character through Sports and Adventure.  Summer camp is the perfect setting in which children can grow and flourish. At camp, campers create lifelong friendships in a compassionate and accepting environment, while learning how to challenge themselves and gain self-confidence. Campers are coached by experienced men and women dedicated to your child. Our coaches provide the individual attention that each child needs to reach new goals.

Our 38 acres of green open space provide the ideal country setting for activities that help campers discover their true potential through sports, including: Baseball, Basketball, Soccer, Flag Football, Tennis, Archery, Gymnastics, Street Hockey, Hiking and Swimming in our indoor and outdoor pools. Certified instructors teach daily instructional swim and supervise recreational time.

Skills, Drills and Thrills. Our coaching method ensures that each camper improves athletically and increases self-confidence. We break down each sport into skill sets that kids can master and then progress to the next level. Campers practice with a series of interactive drills and then play in games, matches or tournaments to demonstrate what they have learned to enjoy competition and develop sportsmanship.

We provide a nurturing, yet challenging environment where kids try new things, discover who they are and safely step out of their comfort zones. As a result, campers look forward to the next level of adventure each year. Campers age 8+ can sign up for ‘Go-Pro’, our intensive clinics designed to develop more advanced skills in a specific sport.

In addition to sports, we have an adventure program that includes hiking, archery, skateboarding, water slides and more! We consistently challenge our campers to build their accomplishments through their experience at camp.

Selecting the ‘right’ summer camp is a difficult process. Let’s talk to see if Corbin’s Crusaders is the right choice for your family and your values. Give us a call today!
