When school starts to wind down for the year, your daughter will need a new activity to keep her occupied, fit and having fun in the summer. You may be thinking about a summer vacation to explore a different country or visit your cottage. If that’s the case, have you ever thought of sending your daughter to a sports camp?
Sports camps offer girls the opportunity to be active every day with land and water sports, make life-long friendships, be exposed to positive role models and build character. Let’s explore the benefits of why you should send your daughter to sports camp at a young age.
Benefits of a Sports Camp
Some of the benefits of sending your daughter to a sports camp like Camp Ak-O-Mak include making lifelong friendships and future teammates. These girls will learn to compete with and against each other, teaching them the best sportsmanship lessons out there. Plus, the memories and friendships established at sports camps can last a lifetime.
If your daughter is already a serious competitive athlete, you may consider sending her to a camp that focuses on her sport of choice or an intensive summer training program. There are certainly benefits to this, but have you thought about the benefits of multi-sport training for your daughter?
Letting your daughter enjoy a range of sports throughout the summer can bring her many benefits such as preventing burnout and injury, giving her variety so she doesn’t lose interest in her specialty sport and help her figure out what she really loves. It can also help develop muscles that aren’t used as much in her usual activities and improve her overall strength and endurance.
At Camp Ak-O-Mak, a sports camp designed solely for young girls, our main focus is to train girls to become their best. Our sports camp has hosted competitive swimmers and top athletes from across Canada and around the world. Camp Ak-O-Mak is highly renowned for their dedication to sports, as some of their campers have gone on to become professional athletes and partake in the Olympic games.
Camp Ak-O-Mak focuses on competitive swimming, triathlon, running, biking, tennis, field hockey and more. Our sports camp offers a variety of programs for the girls throughout their stay, and also trains them to be the best competitor and swimmer they can be.
It’s About More Than Sports and Performance
Our sports camp doesn’t just help to build friendships – it also builds character and discipline. Camp Ak-O-Mak follows a daily schedule with their campers, ensuring that the girls eat nutritious meals, train with daily activities and have fun.
These types of character-building opportunities at sports camp will instill life-long lessons that our campers take away with them to their future endeavours. Camp Ak-O-Mak also provides the grounds for a training regime that the girls can continue throughout the year once the summer is over.
The Camp Ak-O-Mak sports camp also provides campers with some of the best trainers and counsellors out there. Our staff connect with their campers and offer guidance, support and prove to be true role models throughout the summer.
The level of athleticism for your daughter can be accommodated within our various programs. We welcome swimmers of all levels, be it beginners or seasoned competitors. That said, at sports camp, campers tend to improve throughout the summer and come out with higher levels of strength and endurance than they came in with.
