Brand new to Chicagoland, Matrix Sports Camp is the ultimate multi-sport camp with overnight and extended day options and organic meals included. The camp's tag line "Where Outer Game Meets Inner Game" gives a clue to its unique twist. This camp has added goals of teaching young athletes how to "seize the day in a holistic way" with a focus on mental and emotional skills that support peak performance and daily stress management.
At the five-day camp, kids in 2nd-9th grade choose three sports for their personalized "outer game" curriculum. In between the instruction sessions and fun activities, campers also learn "inner game" skills such as journaling, goal setting, and using affirmations and visualizations. Anticipated sports for 2014 include archery, badminton, baseball, basketball, cheerleading, dance, fencing, football, golf, soccer, softball, swimming, track and field, volleyball, and wrestling. New sports are added each year!
Two sessions will be offered in 2014: July 21-25 and July 28-August 1. Daily activities take place at Glenbard North High School in Carol Stream and overnight campers are transported with their counselors to the nearby Holiday Inn each night. This camp is a sure grand slam for any child who loves sports and any parent who wants their child to learn life-long personal leadership skills!
