Summer Athletic Camps
The Oxbridge Academy Athletic Summer Camps have become a yearly tradition for our staffs as well as our players. These camps are designed to provide a fun, challenging, and educational experience for campers. Instruction, competition, and games are designed to address the age and maturity of the camper. Each player will be coached by a staff recognized for their ability to teach fundamentals in an enthusiastic and safe way. It is our hope that each young athlete will leave our camps with the tools to become a better player and with the fond memories of a positive, fun-filled experience.
ALL FULL-DAY CAMPS WILL PROVIDE LUNCH AND A T-SHIRT
The Oxbridge Academy Boys' Basketball Camp allows all campers to develop during the week at their own pace. The development of basketball skills takes place in the mind as much as it does on the court, and Oxbridge Academy works to instill the values of teamwork and good sportsmanship in every camper. Oxbridge Academy's academic philosophy of hands-on teaching with instruction from qualified professionals extends beyond the court, which makes our camp the region's most comprehensive camp experience. The goal of the camp is to have each camper develop the necessary skills to reach his fullest potential.

During the Oxbridge Academy Intermediate Girls' Lacrosse Camp, campers will be working on a variety of skills to help improve their game. Oxbridge Academy’s goal is to help each participant enhance their skill level while giving them instruction that they can take with them moving forward. A combination of fundamental stick skills, small group drills, and game situations will embody the physical portion of this camp. Oxbridge Academy recognizes that talent extends beyond the tactics of the sport, and we will work to instill the values of mental toughness, teamwork, and good sportsmanship. This camp will be run by the Head Girls Lacrosse coach Megan Callaghan, a former Penn State University lacrosse player.
