About Camp

Registration for Summer 2024 is schedule to open on February 15th.

2-4-1 Sports is rooted in PLAY!

At 2-4-1 Farmington, 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.

Registration should be open by the end of February (this camp is offered in partnership with Farmington Community and Recreation and they handle registration), and we expect to send out a GoogleForm as camp draws near allowing those registered campers going into Grades 3-8 to choose from among the following fun-filled spot choices:

Baseball, Basketball, Flag Football, 2-4-1 Lacrosse*,  Soccer, and Universal Sports*.

Those campers going into Grades 1 and 2 will follow a similar format (much like a cohort model) regardless of then current guidelines. See description for Junior 2-4-1 below.

Junior 2-4-1

For boys and girls going into grades 1 and 2 (fall of 2024)

While the times and dates of Junior 2•4•1 are the same as our traditional camp, the programming itself is age-appropriately different. In keeping in line with the “2•4•1 Crossover Effect” – we see it as so important that these youngest athletes crossover to our traditional program having had the most positive of experiences. With that in mind – our staff focuses on infusing skill instruction into serious fun! We want their first introduction to multiple-sports to be one where they leave asking for more! Junior campers don’t choose sports – we bring the sports to them!

Sport Choice Explanations

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: 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.
