2-4-1 Puts Play Back into Sports!
At 2-4-1, 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 Sports 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.
At 2-4-1 Gaston Day, we are excited to once again expose your children to the state-of-the-art facility at beautiful Gaston Day School with a gorgeous air-conditioned indoor field house and multiple playing fields. All campers will get to sample multiple sports and enjoy lunch in the campus’ beautiful dining hall. The following sport choices are available.
Soccer, Baseball/Softball, Basketball, Flag Football, Racket Sports (Pickleball, Badminton, Table Tennis, etc), Volleyball, and Universal Sports (see description below).
Universal Sports: Campers love that they never know what they’ll get each day. Each year it can vary and sometimes even involves community partnerships. Maybe it’s the Israeli dodgeball game known as GaGa. Maybe it’s Team Handball or Ultimate Frisbee. Whatever it is, you can rest assured, it’s incredibly fun and the skills learned crossover to our traditional sport offerings.
When campers arrive on Day 1 – they will receive a name tag showing the order of their sports based on their choices.
Campers will have the option of bringing their own lunch or purchasing lunch from the GDS dining services.
Those campers going into Grades K and 2 (Division 1 and 2) will follow their own format. See description for Junior 2-4-1 below.

Gaston Day has a beautfiul dining hall adjacent to many of the fields we play on. It is where we host lunch and our canteen (camp store). Campers have the option to bring lunch or to purchase lunch. You can purchase lunch for the week during registration or you can purchase as many individucal days as you choose once camp begins.
Campers also love attending our canteen – items include an assortment of drinks, snacks and treats. You have the option to prefund your canteeen account at registration or fund/replenish throughout the week at camp.
We suggest talking to your child about limits at the canteen as we use a debit/credit system.
