Berky Girls balance the intensity of soccer training with the enjoyment and opportunity of our optional elective activities, evening programs and special events.
During elective periods, girls explore, spend time with friends, and most importantly, relax and have FUN! There are typically two daily elective periods. Campers choose their electives daily. A variety of electives are always available. Depending on the activity, electives are limited to 8-20 campers.
Dance | Arts & Crafts | Theater
Our Creative elective programs are some of our most popular. Arts & Crafts offers different projects during each session, from jewelry-making to tie-dye. Put together a dance routine with some salsa and hip-hop steps at Dance, or learn some silly improv games at Theater! Whether you’re a naturally creative soul, or just looking to try something new, our Creative electives are for everyone!
Swimming | Canoeing | Stand-up Paddleboard | Fishing | The Blob
Our Waterfront Director works closely with our lifeguards and instructors to offer an array of activities at our spring-fed, private 20-acre Larkum Lake. They ensure that our lakefront is a safe and fun place for our campers to cool off and relax. Swimming is offered at every elective period, weather permitting.
Fitness & Wellness
Yoga | Soccer | Cooking | Rec Deck | Paddleboard Yoga
Our Yoga elective helps athletes improve their flexibility, strength, balance, and coordination all of which translate to improved soccer skills. Can’t get enough soccer? Join the Soccer elective and work on your juggling and footwork or play a game of Soccer Tennis. This could be the summer you master “The Rainbow” or “Around the World“! Our Cooking elective teaches athletes healthy, delicious, and easy recipes. For others, relaxing on the Rec Deck playing games like four-square, ping-pong and Gaga is the way to go.
Hiking | Campfire Building | Orienteering
Campers can sign up for a leisurely hike around the lake or to the nearby waterfall. Elective sessions also focus on orienteering, identifying native flora and fauna, and campfire building.
Special Events & Evening Activities
To shake up the daily schedule, we incorporate Special Events throughout each camp session. It might be a sleep-in day with a pancake breakfast, “Soccer Olympics”, or a special guest coach or speaker. Among our most popular evening activities are the campfire that closes every session, luau, game night and talent shows. And we dream up new activities for every session!
