Certain camps we work with have one particular area of interest that they concentrate on such as tennis, gymnastics, drama or circus skills!
Generally, these camps are privately owned and although other activities take place on the camp, the main focus of the programming is the specialist skill. Typically these camps seek staff who have either experience in teaching their specialist area or recognized certification. The experience and skill level of the staff is important - as although camps will typically cater to campers with a range of abilities, many of the campers attending will be incredibly adept at their skills area and quite possibly be a budding Andre Agassi or Julia Roberts!
Outside of focusing on a specialized activity, these camps will run like any other, with evening activities and team-building exercises for the kids.
It makes you tired just looking at it! But if you're a passionate about your skills and want to pass on your love of what you do to others then this could be the perfect option for you!
A great speciality camp we work with is the International Gymnastics Camp. It’s is a fantastic speciality camp which focuses on, surprisingly, gymnastics! It’s set in beautiful grounds in Pennsylvania and is only 1 hour and 45 minutes away from New York City! International Gymnastics Camp has 5 state of the art air-conditioned gymnastic halls with the facilities to accommodation gymnasts of every ability. The camp offers campers the chance to take part in question and answer sessions and get autographs and photos with Olympians and World Champions.
And when they’re not in training, International Gymnastics Camp also offers camp activities for their campers such as the high ropes course, dances, outdoor laser-tag and dune buggies!
