Soccer instruction at High Rocks focuses on the development of fundamental skills, teamwork, and having fun.  Many campers come to High Rocks with prior experience and a great love for the game, but the style of our program differs from more competition-intensive programs in which many of those who already play participate.

Soccer camp activities are designed to coach skills and foster progression through an internal competition, not through the comparison and stratification of individual campers based on skill level.  High Rocks offers an opportunity for the advanced player to play for the sake of playing, and for the interested camper who has never kicked a ball in his life to start running around, making passes, scoring goals, and having fun.


Where We Play

While we are located in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Camp High Rocks has more flat land than most camps and we make the most of it. We have two flat fields that we use on a daily basis located near our pavilion for a shade and water break spot.

Typically, class time in soccer starts with a warm-up and stretching.  After getting loose and ready to run, the campers are coached on a particular skill and then spend the majority of class playing a game that emphasizes that particular skill in a fun way. In our longer session, campers may have the opportunity to match up against one of the local girls camps for a friendly scrimage. 


High Rocks was an incredible experience for David. It increased his confidence in his physical abilities and also his ability to be self sufficient. High Rocks provided an incredible outdoor, physical experience but without the pressure of intense competition – the campers and staff and counselors support each other and take care of each other.
