Geoduck Summer Camps Filling Up!

OLYMPIA, Wash. – Summer vacation is right around the corner and the Evergreen Department of Recreation and Athletics is preparing for five different summer camps, focusing on maximum participation, practice and fun!

The first two camps will take place during the final week of June as Evergreen coaches and student-athletes will conduct four-day youth soccer and youth basketball camps, beginning on June 30.  With a camper to staff ratio of 10:1, campers will have lots of opportunities to learn skills and fundamentals, practice teamwork and use their new and improved skills in game situations.

The second basketball camp will take place on July 11-15 as the instruction expands to five days, providing campers with an even better opportunity to improve their hoop skills, while learning about good sportsmanship and social skills.

On July 18, the popular Geoduck Recreation Camp will begin as campers will explore the many adventures that Evergreen has to offer.  This one-of-a-kind camp offers a variety of recreation and enrichment opportunities for campers to choose from, including on-campus field trips, swimming, arts and crafts, sports, group games, yoga and outdoor activities.  No matter what they choose, campers will have a safe and memorable camp.

The final camp takes place on August 1-5 as the Geoducks will wrap up the summer camp season by turning their attention back to the pitch for a week long soccer camp.  With the Pacific Northwest’s reputation as a soccer hotbed, this camp is sure to fill up quickly!

The Geoducks are members of the NAIA and the Cascade Collegiate Conference. The Evergreen State College campus includes a forest with multiple hiking trails, and features a beach on Eld Inlet. Facilities include a gymnasium with three full–sized basketball courts and three full–size volleyball courts, machine and free–weight rooms, an 11–lane Olympic swimming pool with separate diving well, saunas, four indoor racquetball courts, an indoor rock climbing wall, as well as 13 acres of playing fields including a covered pavilion and tennis courts.
