2-4-1 Puts Play Back into Sports!
At 2-4-1 Dwight-Englewood, children have the opportunity to sample multiple sports and learn for themselves how playing one sport increases their ability and confidence in another. While many specialty camps are filled with laps, lines and lectures – at 2-4-1 we focus on getting kids moving and playing all day. All attendees play at least 3 sports each day and we encourage all campers to try at least one sport they’ve never tried before. “Life’s 2 Short 4 Just 1 Sport” is more than a tagline for us — it’s a cultural shift that drives our programs to help families recognize that a lifelong love of activity starts with a diverse, play-filled childhood.
All Division 3 campers (going into grades 3-8) choose three sports from our many fun-filled options (see below)! When campers arrive for our opening ceremonies, they’ll receive the order of their sports that morning based on their choices.
Basketball, 2-4-1 Lacrosse, Field Hockey, Flag Football, Soccer, Tennis, Volleyball, Ultimate Frisbee, and Universal Sports (see description of Universal below).
For details on Junior 2-4-1, (rising grades K- 2) see below.
When registering, please consult with your child about their choices as it is an incredible task for us to build our master schedule and many of our staffing and scheduling decisions are based on camper sport-choices.
If your child is not sure what they want their third sport to be or want to experience an even greater variety, we recommend Universal Sports. See description below, but this will allow your camper to be exposed to at least 7 sports each week!
Just a typical day at 2-4-1 Sports:
This sample schedule is for Division 3 only (Grades 3-8 Fall of 2024)

Division 3 – Rising 3rd through 8th grade
“Life’s 2 Short 4 Just 1 Sport”
While most of our Sport Choices don’t need explanation, we realize a few of our names do.
Universal Sports: Campers love that they never know what they’ll get each day. Each year it varies and often involves community partnerships. Maybe its golf offered by First Tee. Maybe it’s fencing offered by a local club. Or the Israeli dodgeball game known as GaGa. Whatever it is, you can rest assured it’s incredibly fun and the skills learned crossover to our traditional sport offerings.
2-4-1 Lacrosse: 2-4-1 Lacrosse is a hybrid, street style, small sided version of lacrosse drawing on the skills and strategies of many different sports. This fast paced, fun-filled version of the game does not require any equipment besides a stick (can be boys or girls) and a ball (most often we use a tennis ball, but sometimes supplement with a similar weighted, but slightly softer ball). Team sizes range anywhere from 2v2 to no larger than 5v5. There are no designated goalies. In fact – “the goals” can vary from game to game. Sometimes, depending on skill level, the goal is a traditional pop up goal, or it can be an “X” marked on a tree, a large orange cone, or even a completed pass into an “end zone”. Advanced, intermediate and brand new players from both the men’s and women’s version of lacrosse love and benefit from this pick-up style of play that can be played anywhere. In the same way ice hockey players love street hockey, basketball players love playground hoops, and soccer players love futsal, this modified version of lacrosse is a great way to introduce the sport to beginners and improve the skill of advanced players during the summer heat.
