If parents want to drop a ton of fun into their child’s summer, then MEGA Sports Camp is right for them.

At MEGA Sports Camp Breaking Free, kids will try a new sport each day. Monday is flag football, Tuesday is soccer and Wednesday is kickball.

Whether beginners or advanced, kids can improve their skills at MEGA Sports Camp.

What’s more, when the kids are not in their sports sessions, they will be learning character-building themes from scripture through crafts, songs and Bible lessons.
