Each year we invite children ages 5 to 12 to come and participate in our free summer soccer camp. The camp runs from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. for five days.
July 7th through the 11th, we will gather once again out on the soccer fields behind the White River Valley School in South Royalton for two hours each day for our annual summer soccer camp. This will be our 5th year putting on this amazing event for our community!
How much does the camp cost?
The camp is completely free! The church covers the cost of the event with the help of some local organizations. We want kids from our community from all demographics to be able to learn about soccer and have a great time without worrying about any expense.
Who can come?
The camp is for kids ages 5 to 12! We encourage parents to stay and watch while their kids have fun and learn. Younger children (under 5) can play on the playgrounds at the school while they are supervised by some of our helpers. Older kids (13 and up) who have a sports background are invited to help if they desire. If you know of someone who has a sports background and would love to play a role in the camp, please have them contact the church at (802) 763-7690.
When is the camp?
As mentioned above, the camp starts on Sunday, July 7th and goes until Thursday, July 11th. Each day the camp runs from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. It will be warm, so campers should be sure to bring a water bottle. A light meal is provided each day.
What will campers do while at the camp?
Kids start with warm ups then rotate around to drill stations where they practice dribbling, shooting, defending, and passing. In the middle of each day of camp there is a short break for kids to eat a light meal and hear a Bible lesson. Following the break, kids go back to drill stations and then conclude with scrimmage games.
What should campers bring to the camp?
- Kids need to wear soccer shoes/cleats if they have them. If they do not, then some kind of tennis shoe.
- Shin guards if they have them (but not necessary)
- Water bottle
- Kids should wear appropriate clothing for outdoors in July. Red soccer camp shirt from previous year if they have one, otherwise, a red t-shirt will suffice.
- Parents should consider putting on sunscreen for their kids before they arrive.
How do we sign up?
We ask that participating families register by June 29th! Registration forms can be downloaded from this link or in the foyer of the church. The forms contain more details about what campers should bring to camp and other matters.
Over and over again, each year, we hear how wonderful this event is!
We hope to see you and your family there!
