Hybrid Camps: Day + Sports or Technology

Available to campers currently in second grade through age 12, hybrid camps offer a nice blend of day camp with a specialty camp. These campers spend half their day at Roeper Summer Day Camp participating in regular activities and the other half at a sports or technology camp, with lunch taking place in between.

After camp enrichment, swim lessons, and before and after camp care are available to all hybrid campers at an additional fee.

  • Lacrosse Camp (Session 4)

    Learn to play Lacrosse with All-American Lacrosse’s introductory program for boys and girls. This camp focuses on the basic skills necessary to play the game — pass­ing, catching, ground balls, dodging and rules. Good fundamentals are critical to the development of positive habits that stay with lacrosse players, so the focus is on proper techniques. Boys and girls lacrosse are two different games, and every attempt is made to group campers by gender as enrollment allows. The camp also tries to sub-divide by age for a comfortable learn­ing experience amongst peers. The only equipment required is a mouth guard. Each camper will receive a new Warrior or Brine lacrosse stick to use in camp and to keep afterward.

    Campers are dropped off at the Roeper Bloomfield Hills campus at the normal drop off time. At 9:00am campers enrolled in the Lacrosse Camp travel by Roeper School bus with their counselors to the Roeper Home Field at Ultimate Soccer Arena. Campers attend sports camp until 11:30am, at which time they board the bus to return to the Bloomfield Hills campus where they have lunch. For the remainder of the camp day, Hybrid campers participate in activities at the Day Camp.
