Camp All-Star Announces 2017 Dates, New Camp Activities
Located in Kents Hill, Maine, Camp All-Star is the northeast’s premier summer camp for kids.
San Rafael, CA: Camp All-Star is a unique gem within the US Sports Camps network. With customizable schedules and over 30 sports and activities to choose from, Camp All-Star is the highlight of the summer for many children from all around the world. For 5 weeks in 2017, camp will operate for its 15th year. Campers can attend any number of weeks. Adventure trips like white water rafting, whale watching, and deep sea fishing are planned for children who stay for multiple weeks.
Camp sessions operate for 5 consecutive weeks: June 25th through July 29th. Something to note, 2017 rates have actually decreased, making attendance more affordable with absolutely no compromise in quality. In the gamut of activities which are aptly named All-Star skills, paddle boarding and yoga are two offerings that are new at camp this coming year. Other All-Star skills include Canoeing & Kayaking, Arts & Crafts, Fishing, Dance, Swimming, and Archery. Campers get to experience these options in addition to the sports they focus on weekly, like soccer, basketball, golf, and ice hockey.
The summer overnight camp program, hosted at Kents Hill School, a coeducational college-preparatory school on nearly 600 acres, is the beautiful setting which hosts Camp All-Star each year. Located in the Belgrade Lakes region of Maine, it offers picturesque views, fantastic weather and well-maintained athletic equipment and facilities. The on-campus Alfond Athletics Center offers a NHL-size ice rink, large gymnasium, state-of-the-art fitness center, and rock climbing wall. Campers are housed in same-sex campus dorms with 1-2 roommates their age and dine in the on-campus dining hall.
Highlights of camp include weekly outdoor barbeques, carnivals, camper Olympics and more. Camp staff arrives at camp one week prior to check in to ensure all is ready for campers to have an unforgettable summer experience. One family from Wilton, CT said, “We feel lucky to have found Camp All-Star. Our boys got a chance to play the sports they love, enjoy new activities and experience summer camp life with a well-qualified staff of counselors and coaches that seem truly interested in making a positive impact in my sons’ lives.”
Camp All-Star is available to children ages 8-16. Campers are encouraged to select 1-3 major sports they want to focus on, and can select multiple other activities as well. Camper to coach ratios are extremely low, at 4 to 1, ensuring each child receives individual attention.
Registration for summer 2017 is open now. Additional details about camp and registration can be found at www.campallstar.com or by calling 1-800-645-3226.
