KidSport 2014 was a success! Please check back for the 2015 registration forms in mid January!

KidSport offers children the opportunity to learn and refine non-competitive sport-specific skills, team building, and social skills.

The KidSport morning session (ages 4-15) teaches sports, games, and other physical activities, both inside the CCRB and outside on Palmer Field, the tennis courts, basketball court and roller hockey court. Activities may include swimming (instructional and play), cooperative games, safety behavior, and team sports. The activities are age and developmentally appropriate, and are developed by experts in children's physical education.

The KidSport afternoon session (ages 7-15) offers in-depth sport-specific training. One-week sessions focus on golf, tennis, baseball, basketball, soccer, track & field and other team and individual sports.

Aftercare is available following all KidSport and Outdoor Adventures afternoon programs. Quiet games and activites are provided and free play is encouraged.

Ready to discover your inner athlete? Want to team up with family and friends and try out a new game or sports equipment? Staff of the U-M School of Kinesiology’s KidSport Camp will be on hand in the KidZone Tent to lead activities and answer questions about cool camp activities that support team building, social, and athletic skills.

Camp Explorations is a morning and afternoon complement to KidSport offered through the University of Michigan's Museum of Natural History. The interactive program expands kids’ knowledge of world history through experiments, crafts, and activities. Camp Explorations may be combined with KidSport to create a full day of physical activity and learning!

KidSport also partners with Outdoor Adventures to offer four one-week sessions of rock climbing, hiking and canoeing. This week is a skill-based rock climbing progression including beginning rock climbing and bouldering techniques for kids ages 8-12. All experience levels are welcome!

Aftercare is available following all Camp Explorations and Outdoor Adventures afternoon programs. Quiet games and activites are provided and free play is encouraged. Relax after a long day of sports and science!
