Court Sports 0
Basketball – Fundamentals in dribbling, shooting, passing, defense, and rebound-ing are stressed. Individual skill building is taught and team play is encouraged. Our two regulation high school courts are also lit for night time play.
Volleyball/Beach Volleyball - Older campers learn the finer points of competitive volleyball in game situations, while younger campers participate in “lead up” games using modified equipment to insure success. There are four regulation courts in all, 2 grass and 2 sand.
Street Hockey - Our outdoor hockey rink is used for both traditional street hockey and roller hockey. Helmets and sticks are provided. Extra equipment and some experience are necessary for participating in roller hockey. Our rink is also lit for night play.
Tennis – Our 12 courts, 8 of which are lit for night time play, serve as the site for expert U.S.P.T.A. instruction. Campers come to Birchmont at all different playing levels and each one is encouraged to seek his/her Personal Best. Birchmont’s tennis program is one of which we are particularly proud. Much spirit and support is given by the staff, many of whom are on tennis scholarships at their universities. Our camper to staff ratio is 2:1 or better!
