Details

SWIMMING IS BACK FOR SUMMER 2017!

Located on the impressive and expansive athletic campus of Woodlands Academy in Lake Forest, campers of all athletic abilities are treated to a multi-sport experience with all but horseback riding activities on site.

INSPIRING GIRLS OF ALL SKILLS LEVELS AGES 4-14

Game On! has spent years devoted to inspiring GIRLS through its proven teaching methodology, fun programming and spirited traditions. Name a sport – we play it with the added benefit of playing multiple sports daily. We know that learning the right way and understanding the sport leads to increased confidence and the ability to enjoy.

SPORTS WE PLAY

Aside from our core sports that include basketball, softball, soccer, tennis, volleyball, lacrosse and swimming, we offer exposure to and the opportunity to learn in more sports and games than you can imagine.

LUNCH

Campers can bring their own lunches and snacks. They can also sign up for our catered lunch program (additional fees apply). Lunches are not able to be refrigerated. All food must be nut-free. Game On! is a completely nut-free environment (this includes peanut butter and nutella, sorry).
