Today's side deal gets boys and girls ages 8 to 16 a one-week all-inclusive residential stay with World Sports Camp for $600. One week of tuition is normally a total value of $1,145. The camp is held at The Williston Northampton School in the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts, about two hours outside of Boston. It’s just far enough for kids to feel like they have escaped parental grasps without actually doing so, and allows kids to form global connections through its broad international camper population. Available session dates can be viewed here.
During the day at World Sports Camp, professional head coaches and assistants of college-level athletes head up lessons in golf, basketball, tennis, and soccer. Campers also get the chance to participate in sports leagues with competitions throughout the week and a culminating championship. There is a 4:1 camper-to-instructor ratio, which helps to ensure that young athletes get the personal attention they require. Campers get to choose their level of involvement and which sports they want to focus on. Beginners and advanced mini-athletes alike will then play together, adhering to the rules of good sportsmanship and gravity. Check out a typical schedule for an overview of the daily activities.
During the night, athletes in training will spend their free time in comfortable dorm rooms, with computer-lab access in the main office. Evening activities include off-campus trips and themes such as Hawaiian night. The 125-acre sports paradise includes multiple basketball, squash, and tennis courts, in addition to golf courses, one indoor and five outdoor soccer fields, a fitness center, a six-lane pool, and more. World Sports Camp also provides three square meals a day.
World Sports Camp's normal two-week minimum requirement is waived for this Groupon. Campers wishing to stay multiple weeks can combine multiple Groupons.
