Campus Kids-NJ offers
a specialty option for campers who want to concentrate on learning squash
skills and strategies while also enjoying the fun and friends of traditional
Our camp is located on the campus of Blair Academy where we utilize the
modern 7-court squash center (air conditioned). Campers who are enrolled at our
weekday sleep-away camp and are entering 7th grade or older are eligible to
select this Squash Specialty Option at no additional cost.
The program allows campers to concentrate on the sport while also providing
time to participate in other camp activities. Campers are members of
regular bunk groups, living with their camper friends and counselors, eating
meals together and enjoying evening programs and special events.
For about half of each program day, campers participate in squash skill
instruction and practice at one of two levels. One is for athletes
advanced in squash who want continued, concentrated skill advancement.
The other track is for campers familiar with the sport but without much
formal training or match play experience. Many campers will have the
goal of improving their performance on school teams or working up the
confidence and skill level to be able to try out for a team. The
Squash Specialty will focus on teaching campers proper grips and footwork to
improve their swing, as well as proper spacing techniques to improve their
Squash Specialty program will maintain the philosophy of Campus Kids in
which every camper is included at all times.
For the other part of each day, campers choose their own activities in the
areas of sport, swimming, fine arts and performing arts. This provides
a good balance over the two weeks between the sport concentration and more
general camp activities.

IS THIS JUST LIKE OUR
NORMAL SQUASH ACTIVITY AT CAMP, JUST MORE OF IT?
No. It's much more. Not only will you spend a lot more time
playing squash than you would as a regular camper, but you will be working
toward higher levels of personal skill and strategy concepts.
It's lot of fun, but remember that this is an active sport. This
specialty option is for campers who want to take their squash seriously.
IS THIS THE ONLY
SQUASH ACTIVITY GOING ON AT CAMPUS KIDS?
Definitely not. Our regular squash activity will be taking
place at camp all 8 weeks of the summer and campers who are not part of this specialty
program will still have lots of opportunity to play, learn skills and
participate in friendly tournaments.
