High level coaching
Players of all abilities will have a great summer camp training
experience at our Sand Volleyball Camp.
Sand Volleyball Camp is coached by Bowdoin Volleyball Coach Karen Corey, a
veteran coach who has coached teams in collegiate and international competition.
Also coaching this year are Margo Linten, head coach at Bates College, and Keith Wasylik,
a veteren coach from Candada. Their impressive records can be found on 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 exercises like 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.
All waterfront activities are monitored by our professionally trained Red Cross Certified Lifeguards.
Real Maine summer camp experience
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.
Campers will be closely supervised at night by counselors in the cabin who read the campers
to sleep. Counselors also patrol between the girls' cabin area and the boys' cabin area
and throughout the peninsula.
