Week 8: July 27-31 | Recreational Services
The University of Iowa


Throughout each day, our schedule is set up to expose campers to a variety of sports and games that they may have or not have played before. We play anything from basketball to soccer to cricket and everything in between. Additionally, campers will be able to mix it up by spending time swimming in the pool, climbing on the rock wall, or catching their breath by learning on health topics such as exercise, nutrition, and teamwork. 

Activities and Topics Will Include:

  • Basic instruction on how to play, and rules of, Team Handball!
  • Time spent playing other sports including: Basketball, Kickball, Ultimate, Dodgeball, Wiffleball, Volleyball, Soccer, Cricket, and Relay Races
  • Indoor Swimming in our Recreation Pool
  • Indoor Rock Wall Climbing
  • Special Topic/Activity: Importance of Flexibility and Yoga

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the basic rules of Team Handball while also developing the fundamental skills.
  • Realize that exercise, eating well, and socializing are important for health and well-being.
  • Know that maintaining flexibility can help avoid injuries and regular stretching can keep the body active longer.


  • Morning drop-off: 7:30-8:45 AM
  • Structure Camp Activities: 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
  • After Care (Extra Cost): 4:15-5:15 PM
