For the 11th consecutive year, Challenger Sports is teaming up with the Lewistown Soccer Club to bring the British Soccer Camp to Lewistown. The camp is one of the most popular soccer camps in the U.S.
This year’s camp will take place at Symmes Park on Aug. 7-11. Local players will be coached by one of the Challenger’s international soccer coaches. Each camper receives a free camp T-shirt, soccer ball, soccer poster and a camp certificate.
The British Soccer Camp provides local players with the opportunity to learn, grow and share a positive and educational camp experience, which not only develops success on the field, but also inspires confidence, happiness and self-esteem. The Challenger camp culture is centered around making learning fun. The international coaching staff are famous for the way they are able to entertain, engage and educate the campers throughout the week.
The highlight of the week is the Camp World Cup, bringing both friendly competition and cultural variety to each day. The daily tournament gives campers the chance to represent a world cup team, with extra points being awarded for them making up chants, wearing the team colors of their chosen country, creating flags and learning as much as they can about their chosen countries culture.
Following are the sessions the Lewistown Soccer Club is offering for “British Soccer Camp”
Ages 7-11        Half day (9 a.m.-noon)
Ages 12-18        Half day (1-4 p.m.)
