6 Points Sports Academy
Welcome to 6 Points Sports Academy! This is where young athletes are trained for life. We offer our campers intensive, high quality athletic instruction, and individual attention. Our athletes live state-of-the art facilities, under supervision of positive role models while learning life lessons on and off the playing fields in a Reform Jewish setting. Located in beautiful Greensboro, NC, 6 Points Sports Academy is housed on the 100 acre, state-of-the-art athletic and camp facilities of the American Hebrew Academy. At 6 Points, young Jewish athletes from all over North America will participate in a unique camping experience that offers top-level sports training and all the beloved traditions of Reform camping. Within this community, campers form friendships for life and achieve a higher quality of life as young Jewish athletes. 6 Points campers are athletes, ranging in age from 10-15, who are looking to improve their game, meet new friends and explore their own Jewish identity. During two weeks sessions, campers participate in intensive training in one chosen sport and select two electives for cross conditioning. For a well-rounded Reform Jewish Camp experience, campers also participate in traditional camp activities, while living among other athletes, learning sports and life skills from professional coaches and Jewish counselors. A summer at 6 Points is a sports-filled, Jewish values-infused camp experience unlike any other. Currently, there are 13 URJ camps throughout North America that serve more than 8000 campers each summer. Our beautiful campus-style setting is located in Greensboro, North Carolina, on the 100 acre home of the American Hebrew Academy. The site is home to state-of-the-art athletic facilities and a 22-acre lake. Campers live in air-conditioned dorm-style housing, with 16-20 campers (2-3 campers per room) and three in-residence counselors.
