Skill Activities at Takajo
Our Skill activities offer boys exposure to a number of areas that promote coordination and discipline. Skills include archery, golf, weight & fitness training, in-line skating, paddle tennis, flag football and volleyball.
Junior and Senior campers also have skills clinics in each of the team sports. Older campers may develop a special program with our weight & fitness instructor to complement their athletic interests.
Archery is a camp classic – and a lot of fun! Our archery instruction will ensure that your son learns important safety procedures along with essential shooting skills and techniques under the watchful eye of a trained, certified instructor.
Flag Football has all the benefits of full-contact football without the obvious downsides. Campers learn about team participation, competition, and the rules and techniques of football.
Golf takes patience, skill and concentration. Campers learn the fundamentals of proper stance, grip and swing along with proper use of woods, irons and wedges. Campers will also learn to chip and putt on our Tak-a-Hole. More advanced golfers will play at nearby Point Sebago Golf and Resort.
Paddle Tennis is a terrific way to develop hand-eye coordination – and it’s just plain fun! Our paddle tennis courts are the perfect size for the USTA Quick Start Program which is a great way for younger boys to develop solid tennis strokes.
Camp wouldn’t be camp without volleyball. Lessons will include instruction in the rules of volleyball, basic information about the court, positions, and team structure, and skills such as hand positions, serving, passing, hitting, and blocking.
Weight & Fitness Training
Campers will have the opportunity to use Cybex weight training machines, free weights, and other exercise equipment. Safety comes first in weight training. Boys are taught how to take care of their body while exercising, and how to get the most out of it.
New campers can learn to skate. More advanced skaters can refine their skills and participate in our in-camp roller hockey league and compete in inter-camp hockey tournaments.
