Who doesn’t miss long, sun-drenched days of summer camp? Summer’s nearly here, and if your children love to playtennis, swim, golf and ride horseback, then they should sign up for the summer camp sessions at Casa de Campo, open from July 4 to July 30.

Casa de Campo is located on 7,000 acres of pristine, unspoiled beachfront land, where everyone from Juan Carlos I, former king of Spain, to Jay-Z and Beyoncé have come to enjoy some downtime. Children will not only enjoy all of the sports mentioned above, taught to them by professional and kind instructors from the American Sports Academy, but they can pack a little extra education as well. There are English- and Spanish-language lessons, SAT prep classes, off-campus excursions and even the opportunity to do some volunteering along the gleaming coast of the Caribbean Sea.

“Our program is based upon reaching the next level, whether that be in the elementary and middle school ages, high school, or for a camper who aims to play in college or go on to play professionally,” said Marc White, president and executive director of the American Sports Academy.

It has to be said that Camp at the Casa de Campo Resort & Villas is no Meatballs experience. Life on the campsite includes modern, air-conditioned bungalows and meals prepared by the resort’s culinary staff. Plus, the ultra-secure gated resort has 13 Har-Tru tennis courts, three championship golf courses, an equestrian center, and more, bringing about plenty of space to run around, learn and explore.

“We are proud to have a partner like the American Sports Academy,” said Rafael Torres, president of Casa de Campo. “Together we are creating the ultimate opportunity both in training and environment for young athletes around the world.” Bring on the happy campers.
