Looking to find a mega summer sports camp to keep your kids active?

The Epic Sports Academy is offering two camps for boys and girls between the ages of seven and 12 in Armstrong and Salmon Arm.

The Mega Sports camps go July 6-10 at Armstrong Elementary School and Shuswap Middle School from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. daily.

The camps allows participants to learn and improve their skills in volleyball, basketball, soccer, lacrosse, flag football, softball, track and field, badminton, karate (with black belt instructors Kathy and Melissa Severson), and ringette (run by Vernon Ringette Association).

The second camp, called Sports in Action, takes place Aug. 10-14 at the same schools. The camps involve more teamwork and imagination. Campers will have a blast playing dodgeball, ultimate Frisbee, floor hockey, handball and capture the flag.

Coaches Gregg and Michelle Nicholson, who teach at schools in Armstrong, have both taught and coached for more 20 years.

Their motto is to “provide a fun and positive experience while playing sports.” They welcome all levels of athletic ability and focus on boosting kids’ confidence.

Costs are $200 per camp with friend and family discounts available. Contact Gregg Nicholson at 250-503-6661 or by email:
