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! We offer 6 – 10 different electives during each athlete’s two daily elective periods. Our elective sign-up and scheduling system ensures that most athletes are able to participate in their first-choice elective.
Arts & Crafts
Our creative elective programs are some of our most popular. Arts & Crafts offers different projects each day and during each session. These vary from making friendship bracelets to tile-art, from tie-dye to dream catchers.
Swimming | Canoeing | Funyaks | Stand-Up Paddleboard | Fishing | Aqua Playground
Our Waterfront Director works closely with our lifeguards and instructors to offer an array of activities at our spring-fed, private 20-acre 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. Our aqua playground includes a Blob, a Rockit, a trampoline, a quarter pipe, and a floating island.
Fitness & Wellness
Yoga | Soccer | Cooking | Rec Deck | Chill Zone | 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, playing games on the Rec Deck like basketball, spike ball, carpet-ball, and Gaga is the way to go. Or relax in our Chill Zone where you can read, relax, play on giant Connect4 and Jenga sets, or try 9 Square in the Air.
Archery | Campfire Building
Campers can try archery or sign up for a leisurely hike around the lake or to the nearby waterfall. Elective sessions may also include building a campfire or outdoor cooking.
Special Events & Evening Activities
To shake up the daily schedule, we incorporate Special Events throughout each session. One of these is a Cabin Cup where each cabin competes against each other for the trophy. It might be an “Aqua Olympics”, or “Real Life Angry Birds.” Among our most popular evening activities are the campfires that open and close every session. We even have included Special Guests in the past at our Opening Campfires including Singer/Songwriter Angie K and Hypnotist Brad Henderson come to entertain the whole camp. We also have a weekly all-camp Soccer Tournament. And we dream up new activities for every session!
