Junior Griffins Summer Camps

Junior Griffins Summer Sport and Aquatic Camps are designed to engage youth by teaching basic sport and aquatic concepts in a positive environment that is both challenging and fun. Camps not only improve youths’ technical skills, by introducing them to various forms of physical activity, but they also gain techniques for a healthy life.
