Prepare to RISE and fly for the upcoming school year! The ESAC camp program is based on the concept of “Building Strength from the Inside-Out,” that links the athletic performance activities of various strength and speed training with the internal foundation of leadership and character development. Partnering with RISE Enterprises, a program designed to explore the character and professional development of young men and women, athletes will be challenged body, mind, and spirit to be the best teammate and developing leader they can be through; “Speed, Agility Quickness and Strongman” style training, “Team Building” relay races, “Special Forces” style competitions and “Leadership Development” breakout sessions. With a “Kingdom Building” mindset, this camp will inspire young athletes to pursue greatness on the field, in the classroom, and in their community for something GREATER than self.
