YOUTH CAMPS
Summer, year-round, weekly, day, half-day

Looking for summer activities for your child or group? We're offering something different, and very special, here in Fort Mill, serving the greater Charlotte area. Take advantage of our 30 years of experience designing, developing and implementing awesome camp fun with a private, personalized experience.

OUR SPECIALTIES: SOCCER CAMP AND KAYAKING CAMP

We offer a program combining the two, or focusing on one or the other.

Read about Coach Billy's background here.

We also offer other other outdoor activities including disc golf, stream stomping, hiking, fishing, and kayak-fishing, all of which include our sneaky built-in environmental education and life skills benefits for kids.

 

Rainy day? With parents' permission (including agreement of any extra costs), we can offer bowling, local Charlotte-area museum visits, indoor trampoline fun, even arcades, mini-golf or ice cream excursions***.

 

By the week, day, or half-day.

 

By appointment only.

Our programs are developed based on the ages, experience levels, desired activities and size of the group. Specializing in sports training and outdoor adventures, we personalize each session and provide an experience your kids will always remember. We're happy to speak with you about any questions you may have.

Camps may be designed with a central drop-off and pick-up point to be designated based on convenience of all campers and desired activity location and may change day to day. We are based out of Fort Mill but can entertain groups from anywhere in the Charlotte area.

All allergies and sensitivities are considered and planned for. Campers are responsible for all support gear: water, food, element protection and appropriate apparel. You will be given a list of things to bring when you register.

Please contact us for schedule availability. We’re a Mom & Pop; not a big online sign-up machine! Call, text, email, or fill out our contact form to discuss your group, schedule, and range of desired activities. Prices are below and are based on the size of the group to complete the private, personalized experience. Great for sports teams, cousins spending summer together, or how about a group of best friends? If you have a single child let us know and we may be able to add them to another group.

Have a larger group? Let us know your size, desired schedule and activities and we can build an adventure for you; additional fees may incur.

Ages 8 to 17**. Maximum six (6) campers per session**. Contact us now to reserve your spot!

We prefer cash, Venmo, Paypal, or Zelle as payment but also can accept credit cards with an additional 3.5% processing fee. Payment made at the time of reservation.

SOLO CAMPERS: Our private, custom camps are designed around intimate close groups, but we are happy to arrange sessions for our solo campers who might want to make new friends and great memories. Just let us know your availability and we’ll put you on our list and endeavor to put together a group for the time you request. If we reach a group of 3, your cost is the 3-group rate; if we reach a group of 4, your cost is the 4-group rate. If you've already paid and we have more interested participants who want to join your week, we will refund the portion of your payment to reflect the lower cost per camper.

CANCELLATION POLICY: Please note that once you have booked a camp with us it means that we have reserved time in our schedule exclusively for you. If you cancel your reservation less than 72 hours (3 days) before it is scheduled to take place, we cannot refund your money unless we can fill your time with our waiting list. You may text or call us at 803-616-1568 or email at info(at)optimisttraining.com. We appreciate your consideration.
