Summer is rolling in fast! Soon school will be over and your kids will be biting at the bit to get out there and get active. Why not keep them happy and healthy at one of our “Top Summer Sports Camps”? Below we’ve listed only the coolest camps that we guarantee any sports enthusiast will love.



Lumberyard Bike Park

Half-day and full-day Shred Academy Summer Camps at the 'Yard are offered for kids ages 4-14. Camps at this unique indoor bike park will teach kids of all abilities to improve their technical riding and bike handling.

Lumberyard's facilities include jump lines, pump tracks, skill sections, and technical trail riding for all levels.



Okanagan Hockey Camps

Okanagan Hockey Group became an icon in the hockey camp industry and has grown today to be the longest operating hockey camp in the world. The camps, located in Calgary, Edmonton, Penticton, and Kelowna hosts players from all over (including Portland). Hundreds of former and existing NHL players attend OHC over the years as players or as on ice instructors.



Advantage Basketball Camps

Advantage Basketball Camps are consistently rated as one of the top basketball ball-handling camps in the nation. You'll learn all the tricks and moves you've seen in the college hoops and made by the NBA professional players. You'll be the star player on the team, dribbling and ball-handling past defenders through the key for a sweet layup and the victory!




Camp Fire Columbia

Keep kids exploring and learning during the out-of-school months, while participating in outdoor camp sports. These programs all work to battle the “summer learning slide” (the loss of learning and skills during idle summer months) while immersing youth in unique hands-on adventures that turn the world into their classroom.




Lake Oswego Hunt

The premier Portland-Area day equestrian camp is geared for young horse lovers of all skill levels. Each camper's skill level is carefully assessed and matched with a suitable horse. Campers will learn the basics of horse care and the fundamentals of proper riding that will help them develop into accomplished, safe riders. Horses, helmets and tack are supplied.




Beaverton's Karate for Kids

Kids will learn to become mentally and physically strong, with the confidence and discipline to defend themselves verbally as well as physically. Get in shape, make new friends, and develop a greater self-discipline!

Trial programs are available.





PGA Junior Golf Camps

To be the best, you must learn from the best. That’s why every junior golf camp instructor has been trained and tested in all aspects of the game by the PGA of America. PGA Junior Golf Camps' promise is to support, encourage, and respect each and every camper and authentically inspire them to reach their full potential, both on and off the golf course.



Anthony Newman's Sports Camps

Anthony Newman's Sports Camps are a great opportunity for your child that's looking to learn and develop their skills. Emphasis is placed on the basics and fundamentals and team play. ANSC will provide a fun environment that offers safe, high quality activities supported by a trained staff.




The Circuit Bouldering Gym

Bouldering is a great way to get kids involved in physical activity while having fun. In each week-long session, our camps provide a fun and social environment in which to explore new terrain and build confidence on and off the wall. Through group games in the gym, at the park, and at the Children's gym (NE only), campers can have fun while developing their skills.




Catlin Gabel School

Catlin Gabel Summer Camps offer a wide variety of camps, taught by accomplished and dedicated teachers on their beautiful 67-acre campus in Southwest Portland. Sessions will run June 27-July 29 and are open to all children in the Portland metro area, from preschool through 12th grade.
