Our camp program in Los Angeles is open to athletes entering grades 4 through 11. Each day, campers receive 4+ hours of instruction in their selected sport major. Along with their sport major, campers choose two chuggim (electives), allowing them to pursue interests in other sports, cross-train, or try something completely new. Chuggim options may include: flag football, wiffleball, kickball, running club, strength & conditioning, yoga, mini-soccer, music, swimming, ultimate Frisbee, volleyball, rugby, IDF boot camp, Zumba and more! Offerings will vary by week and camp location.
What makes 6 Points Sports so unique is our ability to blend high-level sports training with the best of a traditional Jewish summer camp experience. From song sessions to inter-camp athletic competition (Maccabiah), special guest musicians and speakers, campfires, dorm cheers, Israeli themed activities, and Shabbat celebrations.
By using sports as the vehicle for fostering traditional Jewish values of leadership, pride, growth, intention, teamwork and sportsmanship, 6 Points Sports ensures that campers enjoy a well-rounded, fun and truly unique summer experience.

Coach in Training (CIT) Program!
The Coach In Training (CIT) track is a selective, leadership development program open to entering 12th grade campers. CITs receive training to develop counseling and coaching skills as well as mentorship from staff, coaches, and faculty. Training is designed to support CIT cohort as they transition from camper to staff member. Additionally, participants will select from internship-style tracks in sports related fields such as Sports Journalism, Sports Medicine and a deeper dive into Coaching. CITs will travel on field trips, learn from our Head Coaches as well as other professionals in the sports world, and connect through social activities.
As a CIT, you and your peers will have a unique opportunity to learn from many different role models, make a lasting impact on the camp community, explore who you are as an individual, and build the skills you will need to succeed both as a future staff member at camp and as you take the next steps after high school graduation. This summer, you will be leaving your role as a camper behind and gradually earning the responsibilities, freedoms, and fun that come with being a counselor. You will experience the day-to-day workload of a counselor, participate in specialized training programs, take ownership of a topic you are passionate about to share with the group, participate in community service, and so much more.
Program Dates for 2019:
June 16 - July 14
Optional 3rd Session: July 16-July 28
For more information on our CIT program please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Interested campers must apply and go through an interview process in order to be selected to participate. Applications are now open and space is limited. In order to begin the application process, you must register for camp with a deposit (fully refundable if camper is not selected to the program).
Other opportunities for teens entering grades 9 to 12
These teen programs are open to an Jewish high school student:
Imagine seeing Israel as an athlete, with sports as your backdrop. Imagine a group of teens challenged with the task of teaching young Israeli children how to cradle a lacrosse ball, or on mixed teams with their Israeli peers for a game of baseball, sharing in each other’s culture and learning from their experiences together. Imagine those same teens meeting with influential Israeli athletes, learning from and being inspired by them as mentors in the field. URJ Sports Israel brings like-minded 11th-12th grade athletes together to explore, play, teach, and learn Israel – all through the lens of sports.
Kutz brings together hundreds of the most talented and committed Reform Jewish teen leaders for a summer of fun and learning. Teens customize their own program focusing on developing skills in leadership, Jewish learning, social justice and the arts.
