Camp will take place this summer, with sessions in June and July.
The highly rated All-Sports Camp, located on our beautiful campus,
offers boys & girls ages 7-13 a unique opportunity to receive
intensive instruction in a major sport, along with training in two
additional minor sports of their choice.
The camp takes place in an
atmosphere that promotes the development of Christian values,
sportsmanship and citizenship. Campers enjoy all the benefits of
Loras College, including the excellent athletic facilities and
resident campers get a taste of college dormitory living. At Loras
All-Sports Camp, your camper will experience a life-changing,
fun-filled adventure that will stay with them for a lifetime.
The Loras All-Sports Camp offers excellent
instruction in forty sports, including activities as wide-ranging
as kayaking, biking and rock-climbing. Each camper gets a chance to
receive concentrated training from highly qualified instructors in
three of these sports per week. Throughout the week, campers are

campers have the chance to use their new skills. In addition to
sports instruction and competition, campers also engage in
tea-building exercises and other social activities and
entertainment. The last day of camp is the "Camp Olympics" when
parents and families are invited to watch the campers in
One of the unique traditions of the
All-Sports Camp is the Loras College Paddle Award, a creative way
of developing Christian values and sportsmanship in campers. Each
of the eight letters in the acronym LCPADDLE represents a
characteristic of Christianity, perseverance, attitude, dedication,
discipline, loyalty and enthusiasm. A council fire is held at the
end of the week where campers receive a paddle brand based on their
improvement in one of the symbolized areas. The first award is the
paddle itself. To earn the paddle and the brands the camper must
follow the Four Golden Rules of the camp: Be a good listener;
follow instructions; try hard; have fun. The camper's goal is to
earn all eight brands during his or her years at camp.
2013 registration opens on February
