(Best suited for kids ages 6 to 17.)

Former Angels pitcher David Frost, legendary USC running back Anthony Davis, the LA Galaxy Soccer Street Team, Cal State Fullerton women’s volleyball team, Hope International University’s softball team, and 3-time World Outdoor Singles Champion in racquetball, Rocky Carson, are just a few of the sports stars leading the activity camps.

Parking is free. The first 1,000 attendees will receive a complimentary lunch and beverage. For non-sports enthusiasts, additional activities will also be available including kids craft stations and a bounce house.
