Specialty Camps

UAB Soccer Camp

For rising 2nd-8th grades

Week 6 (July 10-14)

Whether just starting out or playing at an elite level, this camp is a perfect fit! Offering all the fun of tackle football without the same risk of injury, flag football is emerging as the youth sport of choice among parents who question whether kids should play tackle football. Patterned after regular football, flag football is a no-contact game. Instead of tackling the ball carrier, defensive players try to pull the flags off the ball carrier’s belt. It’s the perfect game for boys or girls. If you want to play football, why risk the injuries in tackle? Make it flag football instead!

The Great Outdoors Camp

For rising 2nd-6th grades

Week 1 (June 5-9)

Your camper will explore the outdoors through fun, engaging, and challenging adventures. They will enjoy activities like hiking, fishing, team-building games, crafts, and more designed to inspire and thrill.
