Welcome to our inaugural Arsenal Football Development Overnight Camp, held at Camp IHC, in Equinunk, PA, one of America’s premier locations for overnight experiences.
Our Academy, for boys & girls, ages 10-17, focuses on developing effective team players, efficient movers and lifelong learners while instilling a championship mentality. Our program focuses on developing the person first and the player second in a positive, supportive but demanding learning environment.
Each camper will receive coaching feedback via a player development review card, enabling them to understand their strengths as well as their areas for improvement; thereby preparing each player for sustainable and measurable development and success in the future.
Please note, medical insurance cards are required for all players.
Camp IHC has been serving New York City and New York City Metro youth for over 80 years. Just a few hours from the city, this state-of-the-art facility offers the best overnight soccer camp experience, combined with a premier camp experience off the pitch. Activities will include:
