Coming Soon: 27th Annual Summer Camp in Bojnice, Slovakia

DATES: June 30 - July 9 2023


The camp has become a tradition in Slovakia and beyond. Campers range in age from 8-17 and it works!  110 campers will join 40+ volunteers and GoodSports staff.

Baseball occupies the centerpiece of the camp. It's uniqueness in this part of the world, adds to its attraction. But baseball is only one part of a broad range of activities. Conversational English (not classroom style learning) is also an attraction and is taught with games and creative projects with an emphasis on fun. 

Other sports include floorball (a form of floor hockeyl), basketball, soccer, volleyball, American football and ultimate frisbee. 

The fourth of July culminates in a an outstanding fireworks display  following National Anthems from each country represented at the camp. The day is filled with all sorts of americana from flags, decorations and a variety of interesting clothing.

Calling it a camp can be a little misleading. For the kids it's nine days away with old and new friends. For leaders it includes rooms with reasonably comfortable beds, pillows, linens and  rooms with showers. It's camp food which can be challenging for some, but it's not exactly roughing it.

The location is stunning. Two miles into the hills above a fairytale castle in the tourist town of Bojnice make it extra special. The view at the campsite looks out over mountains that make up part of the Carpathian range.
