Squash is one of the most dynamic and fastest-growing sports in the U.S. and it is exploding at the junior level. Named by Forbes magazine as the U.S. top-ranked healthiest sport, squash is a great cardio workout, a lifetime activity that is ideal for family participation, and ideal training for other sports. There is also a high correlation between students who do well at Math and Science and those who enjoy squash, and often times squash caters to those children who may not have yet found their athletic niche. This camp caters to all levels and includes technical, fitness, and mental training both on and off the courts. Special attention will also be given to yoga and group exercise. Campers will meet the coach on campus, travel together on a Landon activity bus to the Chevy Chase Athletic Club for practice, and then return to campus.
