We do volleyball for kids our way at Adirondack Camp — the big change is that we play on sand. Instead of two-person teams, we go with six-person teams just like in indoor volleyball. We follow the basic rules of regular volleyball in some ways, and beach volleyball in others. Located near the Dining Hall, our sand-filled beach volleyball-style court is nestled in the trees just above the shores of beautiful Lake George. Campers will learn how to serve, bump, and pass the volleyball to each other in this fun kid camp activity open for all ages. Younger summer camp kids often start out with Newcomb before working their way up to traditional volleyball.
You will learn all the rules and techniques of volleyball, while you improve your serving, bumping and passing skills. The game is one of quick reactions, jumping capability and smooth communication with your teammates. You will learn the different hand signals that are made between teammates (often behind the back, to avoid the opposition seeing the signals) to signal moves, like exactly where the signaller would like their server to serve the ball.
Most important, you will have enormous fun on the only beach volleyball court (that we know of) in the Adirondack Mountains! It’s summer volleyball camp for kids Adirondack Style!
