The 2019 Wildcat Sports Camp came to a close last Friday, July 26th and the camper feedback has been extraordinary. Camp directors Scott Wolff, Robin Rosa, Mike Moccia, Tom Fitzpatrick, Curt Russell, and John DiGiacomo ran quite an operation with four weekly sessions that kept over 1,000 campers busy, whether it was on the courts for a game of knock-out basketball and volleyball drills, or on the fields running bases and learning field hockey skills.

Campers chose from a half-day to a full day and the experienced staffers expertly guided their young athletes in the finer details of their chosen sport. “Camp was great,” shared camp director Scott Wolff as he reflected back on this summer’s Wildcats Sports Camp. “The camp does a tremendous service to the community. The kids love it, the parents love it. Some kids sign up for the first session and end up staying for the whole summer program, that’s how much they love it.” 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 and we look forward to seeing everyone in the fall!
