Iverbe Sports Camp: Thanksgiving, Winter Break, Spring Break and Summer Camp
I can’t say enough great things about Iverbe Sports Camp at The Willows School in Culver City. For the past 5 years, my kids have enjoyed this outstanding camp. Iverbe is for kids who love sports (like my son) and for those who don’t like sports (like my daughter) the camp offers games, cooking, crafts like super-popular lanyards and other fun activities. It’s fun, safe and convenient with friendly, experienced counselors. Campers come from public and private schools all around L.A. Last year, Iverbe added a very popular Junior Camp for ages 3-4. The camp is run by Marc Weiss, The Willows School Athletic Director.
“Located in Culver City, California on the campus of The Willows Community School, Iverbe Sports Camp has state of the art facilities including exclusive use of a brand new gymnasium and multi-purpose courts as well as indoor classroom areas. McManus Park, located just 3 blocks from The Willows, is the site of all of our outdoor grass and field activities. Our camp program emphasizes sports while teaching fundamentals, cooperation, and sportsmanship.” Source: Iverbe Website.
