Summer Leadership Sports Camp

This is a fun, play based leadership sports camp where incoming 6th-8th graders JUMP OUT into a matured experience of participating in games and activities.  Additionally, they are submerged into an adult way of thinking about how to lead themselves more effectively and be a positive influence on their peers, teammates, classroom, school & family.

Overview


One way to describe the Leadership Sports Camp is our "Sports Camp on steroids". Incoming 6th-8th graders are longing for more choices, more responsibility, more flexibility, deeper interactions and exciting opportunities to take charge of their day.  They also still enjoy play time but are transitioning from "recess games" and engage more in challenging, intense, well organized and competitive game activities.  Our non-traditional Sports Camp games are the perfect fit!  We couple 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 Leadership Sports Camp is also a lead-in experience for those campers looking to transition to becoming 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.  We call it the Coach In Training Program (CIT) and applications are accepted in each spring prior to the upcoming summer, followed by an interview and extensive employee training prior to being assigned as an extra coach in our summer camp system.

Daily Programming


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 JumpOUT camp is designed to be highly active and fun, not a lecture based venue.  Campers are given choices about what they want to do throughout the day.  They are given responsibilities to manage with their fellow JumpOUT campers and offered opportunities to lead different events across the camp day to enhance their leadership skills and social development. 

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 and 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. 

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.
