No matter their athletic ability, kids aged 4–12 can get something out of Sports Champs' multiplatform day camps. That's because in addition to helping kids hone speed and strength in a number of sports––including basketball, field hockey, track, and volleyball––the CPR- and first-aid-certified counselors also encourage them to start thinking about sports-focused careers. Weekly guest speakers give fun and interactive lessons on broadcasting, management, nutrition, and physical therapy, to name a few.

You won’t find people making sandcastles inside Dune Citi’s 38-ton sand pit; rather, you’ll find athletes running on the unstable surface to strengthen muscles in their legs. This sort of intense athletic training prevails throughout Dune Citi, including in the workout area, on the basketball and volleyball courts, and alongside the ghost of Roy Hobbs in the batting cages. For more structured exercise, Dune also schedules fitness classes such as Zumba’s latin-inspired dances, yoga’s meditative poses, and CrossFit’s daily workouts.
