With all of the Summer Camp options on Staten Island we wanted to highlight a particular program that stands out. The USL Summer camp is a diverse and multi-sport driven camp that allows youth to explore and learn the basics of many sports.
This is a 6 week program that introduces a different sport each week and the last week ends with an Olympic Game. The kids also have the chance to hone in on their creative side by creating a banner for businesses that sponsor them.
The USL Summer Camp is located at the State of the art College of St. Johns University in the Grymes Hill campus. The campus features a beautiful indoor gym, a playing field, modern classrooms and meeting spaces with all the latest technology.
Their mission is to create a conductive environment for young people to interact and learn useful values. “It is our mission to bring together young people from different racial, economic and social classes in an environment that allows them to interact and make new friends. Using sports and creative arts education, we are committed to engendering social interaction and inculcating in our youths the values of respect, tolerance and inclusion. Through the USL Sports Academy, we will raise a rounded youth who appreciates diversity and a community that leverages on its different peoples. The USL Summer Camp Academy is non-profit organization that provides a safe space for kids to get away and bond at St. John’s University Campus”.
