Sports Done Right
Sports at Brant Lake
Our belief is that a camp that has articulated a logical, rational, and comprehensive philosophy towards sports is far more likely to provide a program that will provide a positive experience for all campers. With exposure to a variety of sports, proper sports instruction and skill development, and age-appropriate coaching, our campers enjoy the rewards of competitive play. At Brant Lake Camp, we have a thoughtful plan for every aspect of our sports program, in each of our three Mini-Camps -- and we know our kids well. This is why we are a camp “Where Sports Are Done Right”.

The best instruction around
At Brant Lake all of our instructional periods are lead by one of our 'key staff' members- usually a high school coach. The counselors, who often have extensive playing experience, are used to assist and demonstrate. Furthermore, we make sure our instructors and coaches have experience and the ability to teach within the age group they are assigned. We utilize the most up-to-date, age-appropriate and proven practice plans and drills to insure the best outcome possible. Several pre-camp “training” periods for our coaches are a part of our orientation week to familiarize all new coaches with our approach and philosophy.
All of our younger campers are exposed to and involved in all of the sports and activities that Brant Lake has to offer with more specialized instructional periods available as campers move through the camp system. For example our seniors can opt to participate in 'majors' in one or many of our 5 key sports- a small group session of 1 hour with maximum 3 campers per coach.
