There are many field games and gym sports camp activities for the girls at Rockbrook. Our gymnasium is home to basketball, volleyball and often crazy games of indoor soccer, hockey and dodgeball. Down on our sunny grass sports field, girls are playing soccer, kickball, Frisbee and badminton.
|Take it outside for a game of soccer, elbow tag, or another group game on our grassy sports field.|
|The gym is a great place to square off teams for volleyball, hockey, basketball, or something more silly like dodge ball.|
|Jump into the pit and do your best to be the last one standing in Gaga Ball!|
Gym sports and field games are a great way for camp girls to stay active and have a great time while improving their skills at both traditional sports and silly creative games. While playing, girls build their confidence and coordination, strength and knowledge of the sports and games. One day you’ll play basketball, and perhaps volleyball the next, a wild game of tag or frisbee golf.
Gaga Ball is a special form of dodgeball that’s played in its own octagonal court. Using only their hands, campers bounce a ball off of the court’s walls while doing their best to avoid having the ball hit their foot or leg. Being hit means you’re out! The goal is to be only person left not hit.
While instructors are prepared to teach traditional rules and strategies for sports, they also get creative with bending those rules. Girls have played soccer inside, where they can bounce the soccer ball off of the walls. Girls also might have a “dress up” day or play a version of a fictitious sport, like Quidditch. More than just competition, playing a game at camp means nurturing relationships, being active, and having fun.
