We want our athletes to return home with improved skills, new friendships, and a renewed sense of confidence and self-esteem, both on and off the courts and fields.

Campers may select any number or combination of weeks and sports.

Coach: Tiffany Taylor

Tiffany is the director of the George School Equestrian Center. She is the head coach of our varsity equestrian team and is responsible for bringing the IEA into the GS Equestrian curriculum. Since George School has joined the IEA in the 2014-2015 competition year, the team has qualified individuals and the team itself for post-season competition every year. In addition to the success in the IEA, Tiffany’s students also compete locally at USEF recognized shows and Marshall and Sterling Finals.

“What makes the equestrian teams different from other sports is that students are really part of two teams—one with human and the other with equine teammates. The bond that develops between a horse and rider is something that is often greater than relationships they might hold with their friends. In learning good horsemanship students learn compassion for the animal which makes riders more aware of their surroundings and more aware of others, which will help them become better people in the long run.”

Coach: Glenn Curry

Glenn is the head coach of the George School varsity boys’ soccer team. He was an all-state, team, and league MVP player during his career at Harry S. Truman High School. He went on to be a four-year letter-winner at Temple University and was inducted into the Bristol Township Hall of Fame in 2005.

In his second season in charge of the George School boys’ varsity soccer team, Coach Curry was able to help his team to an 11-5-1 record and a berth in the PAISAA state tournament quarterfinals. Six players on this year’s team were selected for All-Friends League honors and one player was named to the All-State team. Coach Curry believes in developing outstanding fundamental skills and this four-day camp is designed to help players develop those skills. Campers will also explore other aspects of the game in a positive and fun environment. Campers will get to cool off each day at the indoor pool inside the George School Fitness and Athletics Center.

“As a George School coach, I work to put our athletes in positions where they can enjoy success. This means preparing them with the basic fundamental skills, strategies, and fitness levels required to compete. Once this is achieved, we move on to cultivating more advanced skills. During most practices, I ask my teams to work at game speed so that practice can substitute for the actual game experience. This approach has helped the boys I have coached to be very successful in terms of wins and losses. More importantly, it has helped them to have fun while learning about the sport and what it takes to be a member of a successful team.”
