What's Included

Our first ever sports camp in the spring of 1998, “Spring Training Baseball Camp” was the beginning of our camp experience. Founded on the principle that all children should learn the “character” of sports, our spring training camp uses the professional model of sports to teach children the positive and negative aspects of sports, especially baseball. We discuss how some athletes model quality in their professional baseball lives and complement themselves in their own personal lives. We also discuss players that may be great athletes but not necessarily the best role models. At Fundamentals we believe in teaching these children what is in the news and we answer all their questions about these delicate topics. In addition to the “off the field” experience, we have a great curriculum on the baseball diamond. We use the gym for games of indoor baseball like wiffle ball and baseball drills, and we use the two baseball fields at Far Brook School to teach the fundamentals of America’s favorite pastime. In the five days of baseball-softball camp, we examine all aspects of the game and teach the children the correct form of how to perform these skills. It is a packed week of skills and teaching, and we are very proud of what the children leave with at the end of the week.

About This Organizer

At Fundamentals Sports Camp, children spend most of the day learning the skills and concepts for a variety of sports and games.  However, it the curriculum “off the field” that sets Fundamentals apart from other sports day camps.  Classroom lessons are held daily and engage campers in a wide variety of topics including sports current events, character development, sportsmanship, accepting others for their strengths and weaknesses, and choosing proper role models, to name a few.  Lessons also incorporate the values of teamwork and commitment, essential elements necessary for success in sports as well as life.   

Eight years ago, Fundamentals Sports Camp added a girls’ program to their camp. 

Girls Just Want to Have Fun shares the same sport education philosophy and core beliefs on which the camp was originally founded.  Partnered with the Women’s Sports Foundation, the girls’ camp shares a curriculum targeted towards girls and lessons taught at an age appropriate level.  Taught by our female coaches, the girls’ chalk talks include topics such as confidence, self esteem, making healthy decisions, nutrition, and body image. 

Fundamentals also offers a shortened day program for 5 year olds called Minor Leaguers.  This program is for boys and girls who have already begun expressing an interest in team sports.  Sports are introduced through build up games and activities, and since each camper arrives with different skill levels, we work to keep the curriculum fun and instructional for all. 

Give your child a great summer at Fundamentals Sports Camp.  Visit www.funsportscamp.com, email to info@funsportscamp.com, or call (973)632-6122 for more information.
