The mission of All Mass Camps is to provide youth with enriching sports and outdoor experiences.  Scroll down to review what to pack for camp, pick up and drop off procedures, etc.

Sport Camps:  Sportsmanship, responsibility, accountability, and leadership: These values are as important as the skills training, sports drills, and scrimmages that we practice every day at our Sports Camps. Boys & Girls, ages 8-15, can practice your skills, learn strategies, and improve your overall performance. Our camps balance teamwork with individual improvement, with the goal of developing the child’s skills and knowledge of the specific sport.

We expect our coaches to be teachers of life's lessons and role models ready to demonstrate how to win with grace and to accept defeat with class. This non-denominational camp strives to offer campers the chance to learn new skills or master established ones in a different sport each week, including baseball, lacrosse, soccer, golf, tennis, ice hockey, and basketball.

Sports camps take place at a number of different venues:  Malden Catholic has a beautiful campus, which hosts a number of sports, including football, baseball, soccer, lacrosse, and basketball.  Their facility includes new turf fields, grass fields, indoor court, and indoor space in case of inclement weather.  Other sites for sports camps include golf courses (Mt. Hood and Cedar Glen), tennis courts (Wakefield, and MC), rinks (Valley Forum II and ICEnter in Salem, NH), and field locations in Pepperell, Fitchburg, and more.  This year we will be starting a partnership with Matignon High School for a number of sports.
