Transylvania University's All-Sports Camp offers children between the ages of 6 and 13 a unique opportunity to develop their athletic skills in a variety of sport offerings. This five-day (Monday-Friday) camp is designed to introduce boys and girls to the fundamentals and finer points of soccer, swimming, tennis, lacrosse, volleyball, golf, ultimate frisbee, basketball, fitness, and many others. Campers will be broken into small groups (by age) and paired with group counselors who will serve as their mentors for the week.
