Camp Details

At Curry College, we offer two classifications for each week.  

The Comprehensive, All Skills Camp (COED: Ages 8-18) is programmed for three different proficiency levels: beginners, intermediates and advanced players — of all ages. Each student will be tested weekly and placed in a group of similar ability, and age. Beginners will be playing soccer in just a few days; intermediates will improve all aspects of their game; and advanced players will sharpen their game to a competitive edge.

The High Potential/Elite Camp (COED: Ages 11-18) is our intensified program for aspiring tournament players and is ideal for competitive players who presently play or wish to try out for their high school or pre-high school teams or other outside leagues.

Absolutely going next year

It's sort of nice to keep places like this our own "little secret" but, I have repeatedly told friends and family how wonderful of a time my 2 kids had during soccer camp! My son has been twice and now my older daughter once. They absolutely plan on going next year. They loved meeting kids from all over the world too. Great job!!

Look forward to going back

This is the second year we have done the Nike Soccer Camp at Curry College. The coaches are great and provide good competitive play. The Athletic Trainer is also fantastic at communicating and taking care of any injuries. In addition, the director of the camp was very involved in the daily activities. He made a point to personally seeked me out as a parent to discuss future options for my son and his observations. My son is looking forward to going back next year and trying the overnight camp as well. We recommended this camp to two friends that joined this year and both were very happy with the program as well.

Very organized

The campus was great; the soccer play/skills was just enough coupled with swimming and free time. The staff was very helpful and the camp was very organized and affordable.

Improved skills

My daughter really enjoyed the soccer camp.  She definitely wants to go again next summer and even though we live close by, she wants to do the overnight camp.  Her skills improved, her confidence improved and she really like interacting with campers from all over the world with different skill levels.

This camp is awesome. A very rigorous and exciting training course as well as great food and fun activities to enjoy off the pitch. I recommend this camp to everyone.

Learned a lot

My daughter Hannah attended the Nike Soccer and Tennis Camps for the past two years.  She loves this camp!  She made so many friends from different countries, loved her counselors, and learned a lot of soccer and tennis. We highly recommend this camp.

What a great camp! My daughter has made lots of international friends. Her experiences at the camp, both soccer and friendships,  will be remembered throughout her life.

I learned a lot and the learning was both fun and intense. I met other kids from around the world and that was amazing.

Great instruction

This has been our son's third year attending the Nike Soccer Camp at Curry College and he still always talks about next year when he goes back to Nike Soccer Camp...The instruction is great and the counselors make him feel like he is special. They all know his name and remember him from the previous year.

Can't wait to come back

I had a great time at Nike Soccer camp. I learned a lot of skills that will help me when I play on my travel team. My coaches were great and I made a lot of friends too. I can't wait to come back next year!

Laura M., Parent of Curry College Camper '10

  • 5/5.
Truly memorable experience

My daughter, Molli Fellows decided to attend camp alone. I thought at 16 it was great that she would want to go not knowing anyone. She truly had a memorable experience. She met campers and coaches from all over the world and felt that though she was the oldest one at soccer camp, she was pushed to learn and improve her skills. The experience was definitely worth the cost.

Jackie K., Parent of Curry College Camper '16

Better splits based on ability

Better splits based on ability. There was a total mix of kids in the group, several of whom had little to no experience and a few of whom who, like my daughter, play seriously on several teams.

Shauna A., Curry College Camper '16

  • 3/5.
Needs better evaluation system

Of the times my kids have attended, I'd say more often than not their evals were completed by someone who clearly didn't know my kids or was very rushed (with one exception I can think of). I'd prefer not to get the eval at all, than get one that makes no sense vis-a-vis my child wink

Patrick R., Parent of Curry College Camper '09

  • 5/5.
Came back more matured

My son had an excellent time at the camp. He came from Europe and met  someextraordinary people. He improved his skills quite significantly and also his physical resistance. From the human aspect, he came back more matured and the first thing he said at the airport was he wanted to come back next year. Excellent result!

Outstanding camp!

They both learned about their sport made new friends from all around the world, overall they enjoyed every part of camp. The staff the kids all GREAT! They are looking forward to returning next year. Outstanding camp!

Skill improvement

This camp is great! I pushed myself and set the bar! My touch got better and I was able to work on my speed. Great experience too! I loved meeting all the different people.

Lindsay B., Parent of Curry College Camper '16

More outside/extra activities

Outside or extra activities: Can you offer more events at the camp itself rather than off-campus activities: more movie nights, for example. Bunk1/Photos: If you are going to promote this service and go to the trouble of taking photos, how about a few more closer photos, so that we can tell who the kids are? And secondly, what is really missing are the basic staged or posed shots of kids, smiling acting goofy in various settings? Ask kids to look at the camera, for example. You can take far fewer shots and better ones, that way. In the 2 years my kids have gone to this camp, I have not seen one photo of either of my kids other than a couple of long shots where I figured out who they were. It would have been nice to run across one shot of them. I just think you are just vastly under-utilizing this service.

Stephanie W., Curry College Camper '16

  • 4/5.
Make camp more affordable

I had 2 kids there for one week. I would love to see the price come down to be more affordable for either a 2 kids special price...or make it affordable to have them go for 2 weeks. They just love being there.
