What is Sports Camp?
Sports Camp is a totally free, annual community event for students currently in K-5 (as of May 2012) presented by the Amelia Church of Christ at the Batavia Township Park in Batavia, OH. Each year, hundreds of kids come together for the week to have an awesome time playing sports in a safe and friendly environment!
Why do we do it?
At ACC, our vision is simple: Connecting, Growing and Serving. And Sports Camp is our biggest opportunity all year to serve our community. Now in its fourth year, this experience gives literally hundreds of kids a chance to be the center of attention of an army of passionate volunteers who love Jesus. Oh yeah, plus we're kind of nuts about sports.
Is Sports Camp right for my child?
Sports Camp is only for students currently in grades K-5 (as of May 2012). If your child is younger or older than that, unfortunately, it's not for them. If they're the right age, don't worry if they've never played a sport. We are here to teach them the basics first. By the end of the week, they'll feel like a pro.
Will my child be safe?
We have taken great precautions to ensure your child's safety from the time our volunteers escort them from your car at drop-off to the time we return them to you at pick-up. Our dedicated security team will remain on site at all times, and all of our volunteers have undergone background checks.
Where does Sports Camp happen?
Sports Camp is held at the Batavia Township Park at 1535 Clough Pike, Batavia, OH. This is not the Veteran's Memorial (Helicopter) Park in Union Township. This includes Meet the Coach Night on Sunday and the Closing Program on Friday. All portions of the event are at the park.
What Sports can my child choose from?
Your child may choose from one of the following sports for the week (children will be with that sport all week - no switching):
Do I have to come on Sunday night?
Yes! This is a very important night. Your child will receive their name tags and wristband that will allow them to attend for the week. Without these items, your child will not be able to stay for Sports Camp. Please make sure you come on Sunday night!
What is the schedule for the week?
You may not arrive each night (Mon-Thu) to drop off your child prior to 5:45 pm. If you arrive before 5:45 pm to get in line, you will be asked to leave and come back.
You may not arrive each night (Mon-Thu) for regular pick-up time prior to 9:00 pm (obviously emergencies, etc. do not apply). If you arrive to get in line before 9:00 pm, you will be asked to leave and come back.

Can I register my child after the deadline of May 31?
Nope, sorry! Due to our security measures, we must enforce a very strict deadline on registration. We take your child's safety very seriously, and letting extra registrations come through after the deadline would not allow us to provide the safety and security measures we require to make sure everyone has a safe and fun week.
VERY IMPORTANT: If you do not receive and print an Eventbrite Registration Ticket via e-mail for each child you register with their name on the ticket, they are NOT registered and will not be allowed to stay on the premises for Sports Camp. Without your Eventbrite Registration Ticket, wristband and name tag every night, we will have to turn your child away.
