Camp Buckskin

Residential coed summer camp

Camp Buckskin specializes in serving boys and girls ages 6-18 who have social skill or some academic needs. More specifically, the majority of our campers struggle with AD/HD, Learning Disabilities, Aspergers, or similar needs. They have a world of potential in many areas that have yet to be developed. They simply need extra support and opportunities to covert their potentials into abilities.

Buckskin provides a mix of mainly traditional camp and some academic activities. We feature a daily Personal Growth program which addresses social skill and self development. We strive to help our campers learn to build and maintain friendships, to become more self-reliant, to develop better problem solving/coping skills, and to be more accepting of responsibility. As a result of this growth, our campers return home with more self confidence and a strengthened self concept, which makes for a happier, more successful young person.

Offense-Defense Sports Camps

Coed Camp with Residential & Day Camp Sessions

Offense-Defense Football Camp is a nationwide full-contact camp. The camp is coached by NFL & top college coaches! Since 1969 Offense-Defense has been committed to providing football instruction in a safe and productive environment. O-D focuses on the fundamentals and not just the plays or conditioning of athletes. We use a program that allows for each athlete to compete to their absolute athletic potential while providing a safe environment to insure maximum progress and safety. Simply put, Offense-Defense provides instruction for improving a young football player's abilities on and off the field. Full-contact football with an unparalleled safety record provides youth players with an environment to grow and excel.

Once that sound foundation is built and athletes progress into their high school careers, our curriculum shifts to a modified-contact format in compliance with all states' high school athletic association rules and focuses on better preparing athletes to perform well in combines and recruiting measurables while increasing their visibility to collegiate programs looking for talent. At all levels throughout this process, we encourage and recognize success through our All-American program, garnering publicity for the athletes at our events and instilling in them a sense of pride by rewarding them with an invitation to play the sport they love the most in a world-renowned facility like Cowboys Stadium, Reliant Stadium, Orange Bowl Stadium, and Citrus Bowl Stadium among others.
