Summer camp is one of the most magical places, especially 6 Points Sports Academy. Your best friends are in the room or dorm right next to yours and you get to run around playing sports all day. We get to participate in song sessions, Shabbat services, campfires, and so much more. What’s the best part about that? We get to participate in all of these wonderful camp traditions without the pressure of needing to add a moment to your Snapchat story or post a photo to Instagram and worry about how many likes you receive within the first 10 minutes. From the minute our campers arrive at 6 Points Sports they know that this will be their world for the upcoming days. This phenomenon is known as the “camp bubble;” some campers dread it, some embrace it, and we all know that camp wouldn’t be the same without it.

Hello! For those of you who do not know me, my name is Tyler Goldberger, and I am currently spending my fifth summer at my summer home. I have been here for right around two weeks, and it was just the other night that I was honored with my five year hoodie. Sure, the hoodie has a big “5” on the back, something any sweatshirt could contain. However, it is what is behind it that really makes the difference.

As a Rabbi, one might think this is an easy topic to write about. I myself even thought I would write about this in no time. But when I sat down at my computer, ready to share some hopefully amazing thoughts, nothing came to mind. So then I thought, “I need some inspiration.” So I looked around the internet hoping to find a phrase or something small as a jumping off point. No luck! I then got up and looked at the beautiful camp that I am lucky to be a part of this summer. Though undoubtedly beautiful, still no words came to mind.

By Jack Houser, third year camper, read aloud during evening services. Shabbat Shalom: You know, it feels really good to be back here at 6 Points Sports Academy. This is my third summer here, and every year it gets better and better. Last Saturday was my Bar Mitzvah. This is my first full Saturday being a Jewish man and I thought it only right that I talked today. I came to this camp for the first time three years ago, it was my first time ever at sleep away camp. I was pretty nervous about how I would respond, but I […]

By Alan Friedman, Camp Director It has been a memorable week here in Greensboro, NC, as our first half of Session 1 comes to a close and as we prepare to welcome Shabbat for the first time as a complete 6 Points Sports community. Opening day can be classified as nothing less than a success as our 248 campers were welcomed to campus by our Leadership Team and dorm greeters, or picked up at the surrounding airports by our teams of counselors and coaches. First and foremost, I would like to say thank you to our staff. Opening day would […]
