Camp Kippewa’s landsports program is fun, instruction-based, and non-competitive to meet girls at their own skill level from novice to accomplished athlete.
With first-rate instruction in softball, soccer, lacrosse, basketball, beach volleyball, field hockey and more, girls gain skills and confidence while having a blast out on the field or court. Our covered, open-sided sports Pavilion provides us with the ability to continue sports instruction and all-camp activities during inclement weather. Our portable Gaga pit is always popular as girls play the ever-popular game of Gaga to their hearts content!
The mandatory landsports program is grouped by age and bunk. During this activity period the focus is fun, exposure, skill-development and fitness.
We also offer sport-specific activity periods girls can select as one of their daily program classes. These periods are particular to the chosen sport and offer top-notch instruction for girls of all levels. In-camp games and tournaments regularly take place.
Our girls enjoy excellent instruction for all levels in our popular tennis program which is run by a year-round college level tennis coach. Four of our six hard surface courts are lit for night play so the fun never stops. Private tennis instruction is available for those who are interested in additional time on the courts.
We proudly offer specialized instruction in gymnastics. Our brand-new gymnastics pavilion is a favorite as girls tumble and flip their way into the annual gymnastics show. Gymnasts at all levels enjoy individualized instruction.
We also offer specialized attention in archery. Archery is a traditional camp sport that most of our girls have never tried before camp but quickly fall for! Kippewa girls hit the mark under the watchful eye of a certified instructor.
Fencing is a recent addition to our sports options at Kippewa. Many girls are new to fencing and enjoy learning the techniques, stances, and terminology. Campers are taught the technique along with rules and scoring from our experienced staff.
