Athletics

Our coaches, members of JCC Manhattan’s year-round athletic staff, pay individual attention to campers’ growth, successes, and hurdles as they develop throughout the summer. Campers will work on skills in basketball, tennis, soccer, baseball, football, pickleball, tumbling, gaga, and golf. The coaches help the 5- and 6-year-old campers choose a sport each day to work on specific skills and learn multiple sports. Our 7- to 12-year-old campers have the opportunity to choose a different sport each week, providing opportunities for deeper growth, training, skill-building, and fun.
At Camp Settoga, our goal is for each of our campers to learn new skills and play new sports. We foster a positive sense of self, and boost their confidence in their athletic abilities. Each sport is taught with realistic and age-appropriate expectations, while demonstrating respectful behavior, fair play, and sportsmanship. We focus on both the mind and body: the development of fine and cognitive motor skills as well as hand-eye coordination and the rules and strategy of each sport.

OUR SPORTS INCLUDE:

  • Soccer
  • Softball
  • Basketball
  • Golf
  • Tennis
  • Pickleball
  • Gaga
  • Gymnastics
  • Our coaches work hard to ensure the safety of all of our campers, while also displaying compassion, encouraging fair play, and motivating every child to try new things and feel a sense of accomplishment during each sports period.

    We begin each sport period with a dynamic warm-up, followed by group skill-building activities focused on the sport of the day. The campers enjoy throwing circuits, obstacle courses, and skill stations specific to each sport, and then progress to a scrimmage or game play. Our oldest campers also have the chance to play competitive games and participate in ongoing leagues.
