The popular summer multi-sport program, JUST KIDS SKILL CAMPS, founded by University of Oregon Hall of Fame 3-sport athlete, former Seattle Seahawk, and sports broadcaster Jordan Kent, is expanding to Mesa, Ariz. Multi-sport day camps for kids ages 6-12 feature soccer, basketball, and soccer, plus daily agility training, character and nutrition skills, raffle prizes, and more Again. Arizona’s inaugural camp will take place July 11-14, 2022 at Bell Bank Park powered by Legacy Sports Complex.

Kent, who played soccer, basketball and ran track as an Oregon Duck, started JUST KIDS SKILL CAMPS in 2012 because he had experienced first-hand the benefits of playing multiple sports in his childhood. Camps quickly grew throughout Oregon and Washington, then into Idaho. Kent attributes the growth to their enjoyment. “Whether a camper sticks to their favorite sport all week or tries a new sport every day, we want them to have fun,” says Kent. “We have fun music, wacky games, daily prizes, and tons of goodies that all help create an epic atmosphere. If children have fun playing sports, they will be athletes for life.

In addition to sports, JKSC runs daily agility training that will benefit young athletes in all sports and teaches campers a character and nutrition principle every day designed to help them excel in all areas of their lives. “We talk about things like hard work, accepting failure and not comparing ourselves to others. We teach kids to read nutrition labels and talk about the best way to eat so they can have the energy to do the things they love! It’s less about “don’t eat junk food” and more about “how can you best fuel your body?” when it comes to food. The nutrition program has been verified by renowned nutritionist Connie Liakos, MS, RDN, CSSD, LD and is a favorite with camp parents.

Kent is motivated to grow the camps because he sees the good they do for children and communities. “Each year we receive emails and calls from parents saying ‘thank you’. Parents have told us countless times that their child had the best week of their summer at one of our camps, which is truly humbling. It’s an honor that over 15,000 families have sent their children to our camps over the past decade, and we’re thrilled to be growing up in Arizona! We consider ourselves to be in our own league when it comes to sports camps. We put our heart and soul into it. Kent estimates that he has provided 1,500 scholarships since 2012, adding that he wants all children to enjoy camp benefits.

Kent is thrilled to host the camps at Bell Bank Park powered by Legacy Sports USA – the recently completed 320-acre world-class indoor family entertainment park in Mesa – because he loved the facility and its proximity to Mesa, Gilbert , Chandler and Phoenix . The first camp will be indoors to beat the summer temperatures. Parents can register at http://www.JordanKentCamps.com and follow the brand at @JustKidsCamps on Instagram.
