Discover the athlete within

Our Compete program tests your reflexes and competitive spirit, through training and leagues, and electives that encompass a uniquely wide range of sports.

Featured Activities

Ball like never before.

Regardless of your ability or experience level, there are drills to explore, new techniques to master, and games to play. Our basketball leagues and advanced skill development are unique opportunities to work with experienced coaches and talented players to refine your talents, and raise your basketball I.Q.

Master America’s favorite sport.

From pitching mechanics to catching stances to hitting strategy, our baseball skill development is one of the most advanced and comprehensive out there, which makes our baseball leagues as competitive as they are enjoyable. Whether you know baseball or not, this is a rare chance to develop your talents and play the sport as it was meant to be played.

Lacrosse is a sport that many U.S. athletes don’t know, but all should.

It’s an exhilarating combination of basketball, soccer, and hockey that takes coordination, agility, and strategy— which you can master through our advanced training and leagues. Whether you’ve never touched a Lacrosse stick in your life or you’re the captain of your team, we have talented coaches and professionals with a myriad of insights and experience to offer you.

We all know the sport, but few know its potential.

Our soccer leagues and focused skill development shine a light on the unique value in the activity that even the greatest athletes may not consciously recognize. Soccer’s not only a game of the body but a game of the mind. It’s as much about problem solving and decision-making as it is about running and kicking. See a new side to the sport, and take your training from the field into the real world. 

Gain feet like Saquon Barkley, hands like Julio Jones, and an arm like Patrick Mahomes.

Work with top coaches and former players. Master the game in focused skill development. Compete with complete skill sets on both sides of the ball. At Island Quest, we share your love of Football. And like every aspect of this camp, we’ll take the sport to the next level— in terms of fun, talent, and safety above all else.

Jump, dodge, run, and strike!

Every competitor has MVP aspirations, but the reigning MVP of camp is and always will be Gaga (meaning “touch-touch” in Hebrew)! The objective of the game is to be the last player standing. You eliminate anyone who you can hit with a soft rubber ball below the knees, and have the time of your life. Warning: this game is highly addictive and will lead campers to teach non-camp friends to play.

Take your swing. Drive the ball yards ahead. Master your short game.

With 375 acres of land at the Henry Kaufmann Campgrounds, including our own range, and multiple different mini golf courses— Island Quest is the perfect environment for the sport. Whether you’re new to the game or an experienced Golfer, there’s much to gain from our skilled and patient instructors. Discover which club is best for which scenario, perfect your form, and grow a love for the age-old sport.

Are you good at soccer but better with your hands than your feet?

Played on a soccer field, Euro Handball combines basketball and football skills to create a game that’s both familiar and refreshingly new. Each team’s goal is to throw a ball past a keeper and into a net more times than the opposing team. While it sounds simple enough, it takes unparalleled skill, practice, strategy, and above all— teamwork.

Pickleball brings together the best parts of the best racquet sports to create the ultimate game.

It’s a combination of badminton, tennis, and ping pong— a social, strategic, and competitive experience that you’ll soon obsess over. Improve your speed, enhance your coordination, and perfect your serve as you explore new rules, drills, and strategies!

Up your game

In our Compete program, campers have the opportunity to take their game to the next level with guided, game-situational play and focused skill development. They gain essential strategies to enhance their performance from instructors with proven track-records in local sports. In the past, we’ve worked with coaches from high schools, the AAU track, and competitive clubs as well as certified experts in their sports.

Fuel friendships in leagues

Our campers enjoy more than the game alone. They bond as they compete, and gain life-long friends in teammates and opponents alike. While the program is centered around sports, participants learn to thrive on and off the court.

Learn to live your best life

From daily exercise practices to winning mindset development, the Compete environment helps campers, on every level, grow to be the best athletes they can, while living the healthiest lifestyle and having the greatest time. Our Compete campers discover workout routines and life skills that evolve how they feel as well as play everyday.

Their experiences speak for themselves

“I always wanted to go to a camp where I could hang out with my friends AND get to play basketball for more than one period a week. My dribbling got so much better last summer working with the coaches and I can't wait to show off my new handles. Ball is life!”
