Conceived and developed by Milton and Joseph Kutsher and legendary basketball coach Clair F. Bee, the Sports Academy offers a unique program in athletics and the creative and performing arts. Boys and girls design their own individual camp program, with assistance and guidance from our coaching and counseling staff, according to their needs and desires. A camper may concentrate on improving in their favorite sport or activity, and may also satisfy a curiosity about an activity he or she has never tried before. All of our programs are set up with various levels of ability in mind, and campers are grouped in each activity according to ability. This allows campers to try new activities without feeling overwhelmed, and also enables those at a higher level to obtain the type of instruction needed to advance in their sport. There are also "play periods" offered in each sport, for those who wish to experience a sport on a recreational level and want less instruction.
The KSA program covers practically every individual and team activity on the high school and college sports scene, as well as exciting programs in the creative and performing arts. All of our programs are coed, and all of our activities are popular with both male and female campers. All campers also participate in intramural league play in the sport of their choice. Age, degree of ability and experience determine the level of league competition for all campers. KSA is also very active in intercamp sports competition with local camps in a variety of sports.
