Sugar Sweet Farm Camp

Sugar Sweet Farm

With a mission of connecting children to nature through farm-based education, Sugar Sweet Farm has served thousands of local children through farm tours, parties, and farm camps. Each day on the farm brings new topics for ever-changing exploration and fun. Campers grow, learn, and play through creative, hands-on projects, hikes with llamas, horseback rides, crafts, games, gardening, hanging out with and caring for the animals, gathering eggs, swimming, and much more. We offer camp sessions on a daily basis in order to create flexibility for your complex schedules.  Though the daily rhythm is consistent with horseback riding, animal visits, and swimming each day of camp is unique so most families select several days of camp and aftercare that fit their schedule.

Phoenix Sports

Phoenix Sports

What is Phoenix Sports?

Who Are We?
Phoenix Sports is a year-round developmental and instructional physical fitness program for children ages 3 through 10.  The core curriculum has been designed to grow and develop strong minds, athletic skills, and positive attitudes. Our coaches help every child reach developmental and physical milestones at a pace and level of instruction that is right for them. 

Our Staff

Phoenix Sports is owned and their programs are designed by a California State credentialed primary grade educator. Owner, Douglas Goldfein has over 9 years experience in the classroom. Phoenix Sports is designed to duplicate classroom procedures and implement small group instruction. That is why, at Phoenix Sports, they keep their maximum camp size at 14 with 2 coaches. This camp size allows coaches to differentiate the sports instruction and help individualize coaching for each athlete. 

All of our programs are led by highly trained coaches and teachers knowledgeable in sports, safety, and skill development. Every staff member must pass a background screen, be CPR/First Aid certified, and trained in CDC concussion protocols and allergy recognition.  Philosophically, the staff shares a deep love of sports and will teach the athletes not just skills but the love of the game.   We coach to teach young athletes both new sports skills and important life skills.

Our exciting physical education curriculum is designed by our owner, Douglas Goldfein, who has 9 years of primary grade classroom teaching experience as well as Camp Director experience.

We believe in a small group approach in order to deliver individualized instruction and greater one-on-one coaching time in each sports session.  At Phoenix, children will not be lost in large groups and each child will be on a plan to master the sport at a pace that is right for him or her.   

Our curriculum is developed so that each session builds upon the previous session. Our coaches dissect each sport into simpler steps that are based on the child's age and their ability. Each sports session is scaffolded to build and improve on the previous skills learned.

Physical Activity and Critical Life Skills
Research has shown that positive, and structured physical activity for children, helps to promote a healthier lifestyle, boosts brain activity, and helps to develop important social life skills as well as positive character traits.  Phoenix Sports focuses on TEAMWORK, which helps promote, sharing, commitment, focus, and empathy. In addition, we work with intent on self-confidence and patience in the context of positive social interactions.

We are a non-competitive program which allows for our young athletes to feel safe and have fun, although athletes will be challenged to deliver at the highest level that is right for them, while learning good sportsmanship and a positive attitude. 

Different Skill Levels
All levels of expertise are welcome at Phoenix Sports and because of our approach, all our athletes will have real success, fun and camaraderie.

Phoenix Sports is a year-round developmental and instructional physical fitness program for children ages 3 through 10.  The core curriculum has been designed to grow and develop strong minds, athletic skills, and positive attitudes.
