Camp Redwood prides itself on its various programs. This blog post we wanted to take time to acknowledge our court based activities. Here we’re talking about Basketball, Volleyball, Wallball, and Hockey!
Every season our dedicated staff members take time to create and research variations for these events. In Basketball, not only are kids running drills and playing full court games, but we work other skills with round the world basketball and knock out. By teaching techniques and drills, then playing variations on games, kids are learning on both an individual level and as a team member. We of course continue this with volleyball, playing actual sets with our eldest groups and teaching the fundamentals in a game called Newcomb with our youngest. Again, working with these children day after day, week after week, and for some month after month; we are given the opportunity to see our campers grow and improve their skills. Wallball is very much a hand eye coordination game and really encourages campers to work together for a common goal, teams are much smaller, if not individual, so campers are able to work at a faster pace to obtain the results they want. Hockey is a great time for all! Campers learn stick handling, puck control, teamwork, how to communicate with their team effectively, and the basic principles and fundamentals of the game. While working on passing and shooting on net, campers are working their own skill as well as learning to work with others.
Our court based activities are a ton of fun and our staff does everything in their power to make it as much of a learning experience as it is a blast for the kids!
