We will also play fun games such as Capture the Flag, kickball, handball, dodge ball, treasure hunters, Alien invasion, Space Tag . . . almost anything you can imagine, we’ll do it! 
 
Our plan for the week is to have FUN, FUN, FUN! Physical activity, sports and games, are supposed to be fun! That is the goal during our multi-sports week. The schedule for the week is purposefully designed to keep the body and mind actively involved and challenged. Imagine being an alien at 9am and then transformed into a foosball player at 10am before becoming a treasure hunter at 11am and then finally a flying falcon as camp ends!! 
 
Mr. Risley taught his first multi-sports camp in the summer of 1993 . . . YES, 1993!!!!!! That’s years of experience and years of games and activities that have been carefully molded into a fantastic schedule for the week. The goal of the week is to have fun, motivate and educate and when you love what you do that comes easily!
