Sign up now for summer Community Ed sports leagues, specialty camps

Do you realize that children between the ages of 5 and 14 spend up to 80 percent of their time out of school? These hours represent an opportunity to help your child grow and acquire important social, emotional, cognitive and physical skills and to help them develop lifelong interests.

The Summer Youth Program is designed to provide children with a chance to learn new skills in relaxed, non-competitive environment. The summer sports leagues are all non-traveling, intramural leagues with consistent practice times and game play dates and times. The fees are very reasonable and there are no extra uniform costs. (Little T’s, Mini Majors, T-Ball, Combo Pitch Ball and Boys Intramural Ball.) Most leagues begin the week of June 17 and run through the second week in August.

As part of the Summer Youth Program, Community Education now partners with District #911 coaches to offer excellent sports camps and clinics for youth in grades K-12 including football, fitness conditioning, track, volleyball, tennis, and  basketball camps and leagues for both girls and boys. High school athletes work as assistants for many of these camps and clinics which provides younger students with a unique opportunity to meet and be mentored by our local rising sports stars.

In addition to the extensive variety of sports leagues, District 911 camps and clinics and other recreational and enrichment classes, this summer they are offering more three and four day camps than ever before.

Children who love horses can learn all about them and go for a trail ride in our four day Horse Crazy Camp. Is your child an art lover? Take a look at our art camps: Amazing Clay & Canvas and Zoo Tycoon. Is your child fascinated with science? Super Science Sampler or Myth Busting 101 might be just the camp for them. Are you raising adventurous daredevils? They can learn how to wake board during the Cable Wake Board Camp at the brand new facility in Isanti. Preschoolers, ages 3-1/2 to kindergarten entrance, can have fun while they learn new things and work on their basic school prep skills while attending Camp Kindersprouts and Nature Nuts.

Schedules are convenient, fees are affordable and most importantly, instructors are top-notch and committed to sharing their knowledge and expertise with your child in a safe and nurturing environment.
