A Day at Spirit


A Day at Spirit

A typical day at SPIRIT varies for each camper based on the sports and practice schedule they choose. Campers put their practice schedule together on the first day of camp. Once chosen, they attend the same practices for a two-week period.

In addition to our athletic programs, our days at SPIRIT are filled with a variety of other activities that keep our campers extremely busy.
