When it comes to summer camps, my kids can be pretty picky. Even though they’re only 8 and 6, they have a clear vision of what they want on their summer agenda each year. Plus each summer we like to try new things to create new memories and adventures. However this is the first time that BOTH of my kids asked to enroll in the same summer camp they both attended last year. And that summer camp isSalem Sports Camp for Kids.

Not only is it a camp loved by my kids, but Rachel and Allison (both of TMoM) along with many of our friends – and their kids – can all say the same thing. Adds Allison,  It is the one camp that I drop my children off and know that they are going to have a blast, meet new friends, learn new sports and skills, and most importantly, be safe. The staff is incredible – it says so much about a camp when the same camp counselors come back year after year.”

Held on the grounds of Salem Academy in Winston-Salem, the camp starts at 8:30am, wraps up at 1pm, and includes a snack and nutritional, well-balanced lunch and a T-shirt for all campers. Since the camp day is 4 1/2 hours, Triad families who may not live in Winston-Salem, can still sign their children up for this camp and have plenty of time to return home in between drop-off and pick-up. Also, this is one of the few “big kid” camps that starts at age 4 and goes through age 11.

The cost is $175 per week, and only $160 per week if you sign up for more than one week.There is $25.00 off for the first sibling and $40.00 off for the second sibling. Mention TMoM and you will get $5 off your week! Session dates are listed below.

The younger children will experience a mix of high energy activities as well as less physically demanding activities, which all focus on fun. Indoor swimming is a favorite for this group and is often used as a cool down period on the extra hot days.

The older kids will be introduced to the fundamentals of sports, and experience sports such as swimming, tennis, golf, field hockey, basketball, soccer, T-ball, lacrosse and archery. Again, the goal is to have fun, but also learn rules, strategies, skills and competitive knowledge.
