Sand Volleyball is one of the coolest new NCAA sports. Our comprehensive program will teach you the fundamentals of
this up-and-coming sport in a fun and friendly environment. Two of our six sand courts
are on our lake beach, giving new meaning to the phrase 'water break'. You will leave
camp with new skills and strategies, new friends, and a renewed love of volleyball in all its forms.

Players of all abilities will have a great summer camp training experience at
our Sand Volleyball Camp. Morning and afternoon sessions will begin with volleyball skill instruction,
and then move on to plyometric and speed training that will help players become better volleyball athletes.
Sand Volleyball Camp is coached by Bowdoin Volleyball Coach Karen Corey, a
veteran coach who has coached teams in collegiate and international competition.
For a full bio of Coach Corey, go to our staff page.
Campers will improve their strength and power through our summer exercise curriculum that starts every
day with a morning dip in the lake.
Training activities on our beautiful beach volleyball court and
lakeside field will include jump rope, medicine ball drills, hill sprints,
bounding, running in the water, and splitting wood with an axe.
Every volleyball training session will be followed by optional periods when campers can elect to swim, kayak,
canoe, play beach volleyball, or enjoy other summer activities by a lake in Maine. Recreational activities that
enhance volleyball player strength & conditioning will include tug-of-war,
capture the flag, dodgeball, ultimate Frisbee, and kayaking.
Outside of the activity and coaching sessions the campers will participate in an old-fashioned summer camp
experience with a mandatory one hour reading period after lunch for summer reading. Other recovery periods
during the day will feature card games and board games, and exclude cell phones,
texting, and computers.
Each evening will conclude with a campfire that features contests and readings that contribute to the intellectual
and character growth of the athletes.
