During Session 3, wrestling proved to bring out the best as young campers got to experience what it’s like on the wrestling mat and why the varsity team is top notch.

Cheerleading is immensely popular and now a recognized NYSPHSAA sport. Whether choosing session 2-3- or 4, campers came away excited and energized.

The 2015 Wildcat Sports Camp came to a close last Friday, July 24th and the camper feedback has been extraordinary. Camp directors Vin Altebrando, Robin Rosa, Tom Fitzpatrick, and John DiGiacomo ran quite an operation with four weekly sessions that kept over 1,000 campers busy with Field Hockey to Flag football – Basketball to Baseball, and everything in between.

Campers chose from a half-day to a full day and the experienced staffers expertly guided their young charges in the finer details of their chosen sport.  “This summer was another great all-around experience, especially to see our varsity coaches provide such a high level of instruction to the campers,” said Vin Altebrando. “This community type of sports camp gives everyone, from the young athlete looking to seriously up their game, to the youngster wanting an active and fun experience, the chance to do it all.”  Seeing our Walt Whitman alumni return to their familiar fields, courts, and diamonds and engage with their much younger community members provided an exemplary environment that makes the South Huntington community so special.

Thank you to all the coaches and staffers, as well as our campers and their families for making this year’s Wildcat Sports Camp so successful. Enjoy the rest of your summer… see you all next year.
