CAMPS at AGAWAM
For more than 40 years, Agawam has offered summer Camps for its youngest members and their friends rising into first through tenth grades. Regardless of age, each Agawam camp week is filled with summer fun, sun, and exertion on our 130 acre property. With a thoughtful approach to structuring campers’ days, activities, professional instruction, courses and courts are tailored to each child’s age and ability. All campers benefit from cooling off in our heated pool and satisfying their appetite with a healthy meal at our Lunch Box cafe.
Week long summer camps at Agawam include , Camp Agawam (described below) for children Grades 1st to 6th and, for children grades 5th to 10th, Racquets Academy, Racquets & Golf Sports Academy and Junior Golf Development Camp. Camps are offered for both members and non-members.
In partnership with Lincoln School, we are pleased to offer Camp Agawam which is geared towards boys and girls rising into 1st through 6th Grade. Children are grouped by grades 1-3 and 4-6, or according to skill level. For Summer of 2022, Camp Agawam will be offered the weeks starting June 13, June 20, June 27, July 18, July 25, August 1, August 8, August 15 and August 22. Camp Agawam runs from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. daily.
Agawam reserves the right to cancel camp days or partial days with one day advance notice if rain forecast will require us to remain inside for most of the day.
In the morning, campers rotate into different clinics led by Agawam’s professional golf and racquets staff.
With our Racquets Professional, Dana Parziale, campers learn and improve upon essential racquets skills in a format that mixes conditioning, drills and games with top-notch instruction. Our racquets program includes tennis, squash and pickleball, so each camper is sure to find a sport he/she likes.
Over on the golf course, our PGA Certified Golf Professional, Lou Rivers and his staff lead children on a number of drills and games are used to teach everything from hand-eye coordination to traditional golf skills. Children get plenty of time to work on chipping, putting and driving with instruction from our seasoned golf professionals.
As with all sporting at Agawam, our intention is to help children find the joy in sport with a friendly and fun approach to learning and tuning skills.
Between and after clinics, campers have the opportunity to enjoy our sun-soaked pool and other fun and creative activities led by our counselor team. Recent campers have: built and tested boats in the pool, created comic books and graphic novels, made tie-dyed clothing and learned a variety of ways to craft friendship bracelets.
When time and interest permit, the professional chefs at Agawam have led the campers in cooking clinics where they’ve made pizza, pies and smoothies from scratch.
In short, Camp Agawam staff and councilors have the expertise and flexibility to tailor each week's program to campers' ages and interests.
