Camp Rising Sun: Jump Rope & Volleyball

Jump Rope and Volleyball are the only sports offered at the Taylor Family YMCA sports camp. We offer Jump Rope for youth in grades 1 - 6 and Volleyball for youth in grades 3 - 8. 

Through skill development sessions, tactical instruction, and expert coaching, campers are able to progress at their own pace. Counselors strive to build character and promote teamwork. Campers still swim and enjoy some traditional camp activities. 

Jump Rope Camp is led by the YMCA Super Skippers Elite Team, winners of 6 consecutive USA Jump Rope National Championships.

Camp Rising Sun's Sports Camps are open to rising grades 1 - 6 (Jump Rope) and rising grades 3 - 8 (Volleyball). It is located at the Taylor Family YMCA (101 YMCA Drive, Cary, NC).

OUR STAFF

Our summer day camp staff are ages 16 through early college. Most were once campers themselves. Each YMCA camp counselor is hand-picked for their experience with our camp specialties, as well as their enthusiasm, energy, eye for safety and maturity. All counselors go through 30 hours of hands-on training in everything from managing a group of energetic kids to basic first aid.
