We all love hearing and telling great stories.  This summer at Stayner Camp we will become Story Makers and Story Tellers as we learn about the story that is being written on all of our hearts. It’s a story of adventure and discovery. It’s a story of love and perseverance. And it’s a story that will take us places beyond anything we could ask or think. 

TOP SU Sports Camp

Ages 6-12
2025 Dates and Rates Coming Soon

At SU Sports Camps, the coach is Jesus and the challenge is to follow him!  Start getting excited!  The week will be packed with skill development, games, scrimmages, and awards, as the campers rotate through 3 sports – soccer, ball hockey, and a daily mystery sport! This will be a recreational sports camp, meaning the emphasis will be on having a blast while also growing in confidence and making new friends. Best of all, we will be looking at the Greatest Coach of All time who invites you to be His friend; that is…Jesus!  This will be an unforgettable time and we can’t wait to see you!

John O’Sullivan from the Changing the Game Project says this: “it is crucial for a child under the age of 13 to participate in more than one sport”.  At SU Sports Camp, under the kind hand of SU interns and Stayner Camps’ own huddle coaches, campers will be encouraged through every activity.  These leaders are excited about working with 6 to 12-year-olds.  Exceptional coaching fosters teamwork and a sense of belonging during each sports session and daily team talk. Don’t miss out on this camp experience at Stayner Camp this summer!
