The Decathlon Sports Club was founded in 1981 by a small group of educators and athletes who grew up in neighborhoods where the kids came outside after dinner and played stickball, pickle, football, basketball, hide-and-seek, 3-flies- up, traded cards, had water fights, etc. That childhood experience provided the foundation and inspiration for this camp.

Yes...we are primarily a sports camp. But the camp environment we have created and fostered feels a lot like that 'old neighborhood', with sports, games and socializing going on almost non-stop. Contests, barbeques, jokes, water fights, swimming, treasure hunts, trivia, arts & crafts, tug-of-war, board games, card-trading, prizes.... These things, in combination with structured sports and instruction, create the simultaneously relaxed, crazy, fun and educational feel of our program. This is a wonderful place for children to play, get tons of exercise, and develop socially, physically, and athletically.

The Decathlon Sports Club of Woodside began small (with just 20 children) 37 years ago. We now proudly serve over 700 families from San Francisco to Stanford each summer. Yes, we have grown and evolved quite a bit, but our goal and focus has always remained the same....great staff, hard work, emphasis on safety and service, attention to detail, individualized attention, and understanding and catering to those things that children enjoy and need. The camp owner and directors are on-site, attending to the smallest details, and completely involved every day.

We are looking forward to another great summer (our 37th!) and we hope you will be part of it!
