Stamford, CT - Chelsea Piers Connecticut (CPCT) is pleased to announce unique summer camp options in more than ten sports, ranging from half-day programs for preschool-aged children, to full-day developmental and elite level camps. Camp programs will be offered all summer, beginning July 9th . Young athletes may sign up for one, two or more weeks of camp for maximum flexibility.
Chelsea Pier Connecticut summer camps will include some of the best coaching in the world under one roof including U.S. soccer legend Kristine Lilly, hockey phenomenon Angela Ruggiero, squash great Natalie Grainger and more.
Campers may participate in sport-specific camps, dual-sport camps or multi-sport camps. There will be three general categories of camps offered: recreational camp programs for preschool and beginner athletes, sport-specific developmental and elite camps for elementary and middle school athletes and sport-specific training programs for elite high school, prep school, and college athletes.
Preschool camps include half-day ice skating, half-day gymnastics and a longer Multi-Sports Academy for 4 – 5 year olds. Campers starting at age five may specialize in a full-day sport-specific camp or choose one of the multi-sport camps or dual-sport camps. Eight to thirteen-year-old dual-sport athletes can sign up for one of CPCT's unique combo camps. There will also be Elite training opportunities for high school and prep school athletes.
In addition to receiving top-notch instruction in campers’ core sports, athletes will have the unique opportunity to enjoy the other facilities throughout the air-conditioned complex during a daily recreational period.
