Summer Sports Leadership Camp

This is a fun, highly active sports camp with hands-on leadership experiences woven throughout.  Incoming 6th-8th graders design their own sports camp experience while maturing their perspective about how to lead themselves and be a positive influence on their peers, teammates, classroom, school & family.

Out of Season

Overview

Our Sports Leadership Camp concept is "built for the big kids"!  Incoming 6th-8th graders don't want to be at the little kids camp any more.  They are longing for more choices, more responsibility, more flexibility, deeper interactions and exciting opportunities to take charge of their day.  They want to learn leadership skills through hands-on experiences, not lectures.  They still enjoy playing camp games, but are transitioning from "recess games" to engaging in challenging, intense, well organized and competitive game activities. Our non-traditional Sports Camp games are the perfect fit as they include and motivate the "not-so-athletic" but also challenge the gifted athlete!  

Bald Eagle couples our unique games with a hands-on curriculum of leadership experiences and choices that the pre-teen is starving for.  We are confident that "leadership through a sports experience" is a powerful tool to prepare children for adulthood.  With a different leadership theme each week that instigates new discussions and obstacles, incoming 6th-8th graders can get a refreshed experience even if they attend every session or come for multiple summers.

The Sports Leadership Camp is also a lead-in experience for those campers looking to transition into a coach at Bald Eagle once they've aged out of our camp (entering 9th grade).  For youth entering 9th & 10th grade, we offer the premier leadership volunteer experience in the Bay Area called the Coach In Training Program (CIT).

Daily Programming

It's hard to fathom sometimes, frightening in fact, that our incoming 6th-8th grader is on the "cliff of adulthood".  Countless life-threatening situations that mandate sound decision making skills are just around the corner.  Is your child ready?  Sadly, at the time when they need to listen the most, part of their transition to adulthood involves them not being as "attuned" to the voice of mom & dad.  It's in this pre-teen period where parents need to associate their child with quality peer mentors or mentors who are worth looking up to, and Bald Eagle provides the best role-models around. 

More than ever before preteens need a compass, a guideline, a clear picture of what it means to be a successful teenager and adult. They can get that picture here at Bald Eagle Camps, framing a clear target on how they can be their best in every area of their life.

This Sports Leadership Camp is designed to be highly active and fun, not a lecture based venue.  Campers make choices about what they want to do throughout the day from a menu of activity choices.  They are given duties/responsibilities to manage daily with their fellow Sports Leadership campers and offered opportunities to create or lead different events across the camp day.  Each sports event is an opportunity for them to enhance their leadership skills and social development. 

The program varies a bit from LARGE SITE Program (Los Altos) to our SMALL SITE Program (currently Los Gatos, SJ & Fremont).  Both offer different perks but the same programming.  Large site as you might assume has more teams, so more varied social interactions and game variations.  Small site has a tighter knit group and has more flexiblity with project and game choices, and get more peer interactions with coaches.  Both Site Strategies are loved by the campers since the Sports Leadership concept treats them like young adults, not little kids. 

Incoming 6th-8th graders need something more than the traditional options that are out there for their age group, like sport specific or academically focused camp choices.  The reality is they are aging-out of a lot of things, but that makes the transition that much more important.  Bald Eagle is addressing that need. Pre-Teens thrive when allowed more freedom, opportunity, choice & inclusion with the coaching staff. We offer all of this value and depth of programming wrapped in a fun summer camp sports experience. 

Does your 6th-8th grader have a "Team Captain Mentality"?  Every youth, no matter where they are on the spectrum of being ready to be a leader can benefit dramatically from our popular Sports Leadership Camp concept.
