Sports and Recreation Camp
Boys and girls aged six to 12 are invited to participate in the Sports and Recreation Camp, which offers a fun, active and safe in-person environment in which to improve their sports skills, make friends and enjoy summer vacation. Activities include football, basketball, swimming, tennis, art and much more.
Each camper selects two major activities, each of which meets daily for 75 minutes. Major activities include football, tennis, swimming, basketball, art and fencing. Campers are also assigned to minor activities, which change every day to offer all participants a wide variety of experiences. Minor activities include badminton, fencing, basketball, football, swimming, slip n’ slide, tennis, art, small games (dodgeball, table tennis, etc.), cinema, cycling, dezni la dazzak, coding (with RoboGarden) and exciting art projects (with the Orenda Tribe). This arrangement allows players to specialize in one sport while developing their skills in another. While avid athletes are encouraged to sign up, no prior experience is necessary. Each activity has a beginner and an advanced section in order to accommodate all skill levels.
With its modern campus and excellent sports facilities, King’s Academy is the ideal location for athletic training. The Academy’s expansive grounds include three football fields, six tennis courts, a multi-purpose indoor court, three outdoor basketball courts and a semi-Olympic indoor swimming pool. The campus also includes an extensive cross-country track that can be used for mountain biking.
Plenty of cold water is available throughout the day, and campers will be provided boxed lunches. An on-campus health center is fully staffed to provide athletic training and medical care in case of injury or illness. All health and safety precautions are being considered, and we are working with epidemiological experts to develop effective protocols, which will be shared with campers closer to the starting date. The availability of the Sports and Recreation Camp will be subject to governmental approval and regulations based on the health status of the school and country. Buses provide optional daily transportation from Amman.
My daughters absolutely loved it. They were asking to come back next summer before their current session was even over. They had a blast!
