Sports Camps in Oregon: Length, Type, and Cost
Camps vary in length and intensity. Do you want an overnight camp that lasts a week or more and where almost all waking hours are spent working on, or learning about, your sport? Are you looking for something that you can attend for a few hours every day for a few days or a week, giving you a chance to practice and learn, without taking over your life for weeks at a time? You’ll find camps that fit these descriptions and everything in between.
Sports Camps offer instruction and recruiting. If you aren’t interested in recruiting per se, then you can disregard the camps that focus most or all of their time on recruiting. If you are looking for recruiting options, don’t attend a camp that doesn’t mention recruiting in its brochure. You won’t get the kind of exposure you are looking for, even if the camp is being held at a school you want to attend.
Look for camps that offer discounts that you qualify for. Some camps offer need-based aid, while others have competitions for scholarships. There are camps that offer discounts to children of employees, to siblings who register for the same camp, or for teams that register a certain number of players. If you can find a camp that offers a discount and the instruction you are looking for, you might want to add that one to your list.
