RetroActive Sports Camp with JB Schuck | Ages: 7-12 – Register Online
How much fun do you think your kids can have in one week? RetroActive Sports introduces its “Games Galore” week-long summer day camp. Our goal is to bring back classic games that have somehow disappeared from contemporary playgrounds. Sports and games that used to be played in every neighborhood are now a distant memory. Each day we reintroduce a different set of games such as dodgeball, newcomb, punchball, sputnik, flickerball, capture the flag, team handball, ga-ga, whiffle-ball, bonzo, kickball, spud, thunderball, and many more. When your kids walk into our camp, they’ll know it’s something different. Our kids don’t train, drill, and practice – we play games. We run, jump, kick, throw, and laugh non-stop. Don’t just sign up for another camp – treat your kids to retroactive fun! Please bring a nut-free bag lunch.
