Choice Camps Recommendation of Kutsher's Sports Academy
Choice Camps recommends Kutsher’s Sports Academy for active and multiple-sport athletes. KSA allows campers to pursue all of their athletic interests in an attractive traditional camp setting. Every sport is offered at a variety of levels so it is easy to try new activities in a stress-free environment. KSA coaches work hard to help athletes develop their skills and provide private lessons during free periods. By blending skills and drills with a wide range of fun extra activities, participants not only improve in their sport but have a fulfilling summer camp experience and form life-long friendships.
Kutsher’s Sports Academy offers campers the ability to grow and develop in the sport of their choosing in a traditional camp setting on the shores of Lake Buel. Campers can participate in 16 different sports and activities and are coached by professional staff. Campers of any athletic ability are welcome. Even if you have never played a sport before, you have plenty of opportunities to try something new. KSA relocated to its current location in 2008 in the Berkshire Mountains and features brand new facilities including nine tennis courts, a driving range, a 20,000 square foot field house and a main lodge. Campers will never be bored and choose from several unique activities to fill four elective periods per day including basketball, water skiing, soccer, fishing, kayaking and lacrosse. At night, campers choose their favorite sport and participate in a camp league and fight for the chance to win the coveted KSA Championship. Kutsher’s Sports Academy seeks to blend learning and fun in a traditional camp environment to offer a fantastic summer of fun.
Kutsher's Sports Academy programs are directed by professional, college and high school level coaches who love sports. Many of our coaches have been with KSA for more than 20 years and some were even former campers. Division Leaders and Camp Mothers supervise bunk life and ensure that campers are developing healthy relationships and having fun. Professional athletes including Wilt Chamberlain and Doc Rivers sometimes visit KSA to put on guest clinics for campers.
