Who We Are

RSA is an overnight sports camp located on the beautiful campus of Fairfield University in southeastern Connecticut. Children and teens entering grades 4 through 11 may join us for one or more of our two-week camp sessions.

Our campers work closely with experienced coaches for approximately five hours each day developing skills and building confidence in the signature sport of their choosing.

Our daily schedule also provides campers with the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of electives as well as enjoy traditional camp activities. At RSA, Jewish values and traditions are integrated into our daily program, giving our athletes a uniquely well-rounded experience unlike any other serious sports skills camp.
