Important details
Sports Camp is a totally free, annual community event for students currently in K-5 presented by Connect Christian Church at the Batavia Township Park in Batavia, OH. Each year, hundreds of kids come together for the week to have an awesome time playing sports in a safe and friendly environment! On Sunday, June 10, during meet-the-coaches night, families can come anytime between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. to pickup their registration packet.Our camp runs from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Friday, June 15 is Family Night, which starts at 6 p.m. and will end around 8 p.m. with some awesome giveaways!

Why do we do it?
Sports Camp is one of our biggest opportunities all year to serve our community. This experience gives literally hundreds of kids a chance to be the center of attention of an army of passionate volunteers who love Jesus. Oh yeah, plus we’re kind of nuts about sports.

Is Sports Camp right for my child?
Sports Camp is only for students currently in grades K-5 (as of May 2018). Age limit is 5 to 12 years old. If your child is younger or older than that, unfortunately, it’s not for them. If they’re the right age, don’t worry if they’ve never played a sport. We are here to teach them the basics first. By the end of the week, they’ll feel like a pro.

Will my child be safe?
We have taken great precautions to ensure your child’s safety from the time our volunteers escort them from your car at drop-off to the time we return them to you at pick-up. Our dedicated security team will remain on site at all times, and all of our volunteers have undergone background checks.

Where does Sports Camp happen?
Sports Camp is held at the Batavia Township Park at 1535 Clough Pike, Batavia, OH. This is not the Veteran’s Memorial (Helicopter) Park in Union Township. This includes Meet the Coach Night on Sunday and the Closing Program on Friday. All portions of the event are at the park.
