By Allison T, Triad Smarty Pants

It is time for our March Giveaway, and the TSP team is thrilled to announce that we are giving away TWO camp spots to two lucky Smarty readers! We know your children will love the camps we have in store. Today will begin the giveaway for the incredible Salem Sports Camp For Kids, and tomorrow we will introduce the Eastern Music Festival and give details on the camp spot that they are giving away. Read below to learn more about Salem Sports Camp for Kids and to register. Then tune back in tomorrow for a second giveaway! - TSP team

I cannot believe it is Summer Camp registration time as I sit writing this watching snow fall out my window! I am excited to tell you today about my kids’ favorite summer camp that they attended last year. It is Salem Sports Camp for Kids, put on by Salem Academy. And guess what? They are giving one lucky Lil’ Smarty a spot at their week-long sports camp (valued at $145)! Details on registering for this give-away are at the bottom of this blog.

AND, on top of all of this (plus other discounts mentioned below), Salem Sports Camp for Kids is offering ALL Triad Smarty Pants’ readers an additional $5 OFF if you mention TSP when you register.

When I first heard about Salem Sports Camp for Kids, I was really excited for my kids to go to camp on the beautiful grounds of Salem Academy and College. It turns out that the Academy grounds were just a bonus. It was the exposure to all of the different activities, quality of the staff and counselors and social aspect that made this a top-notch camp.

I remember the day I called Lorie Howard, the Athletic Director at Salem Academy and founder of Salem Sports Camp for Kids, to get the scoop on these new sports camps that I had been hearing about. Within minutes of discussing all of the camp details, I knew this was the camp that my 4-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son needed to experience.

One of the many things I loved about Salem Sports Camp was the secure and structured environment it provided for my children. I dropped them off every morning knowing that they were going to be taken care of. The camper to counselor ratio is no more than seven campers to one instructor. I also loved the fact that my children were exposed to new activities. They talked my ear off every afternoon about what they experienced that day…golf, archery, T-ball, tennis, swimming, soccer. You name it, they tried it.

Salem Sports Camp for Kids is a half-day program for ages 4-11. They divide up the campers by their age and gender, so everyone is comfortable in their setting. The camp day is from 8:30am – 1pm, includes a morning snack, a well-balanced, nutritional lunch provided by Salem Academy, drinks and a T-shirt – all of these were huge pluses for me! I didn’t have to worry about packing two lunches every morning or fight with anyone on what they were wearing.

Also, this is one of the most reasonably priced camps my children have attended. If you have more than one child to register, there is a 25% discount for each sibling. There is also a discount for each additional week you enroll your child.

I am highly recommending you consider Salem Sports Camp for Kids this summer. You will not be disappointed! I also recommend that you email or call Lorie Howard with any questions. She is an amazing person and Camp Director. She answered all of my questions and more. Her information is or , 336-721-2732.
