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.

    Thanks for the piece – it is always a challenge to find quality programs to cover those school vacations that can either become dead time for kids or crazy time for parents.

    Our family loves Iverbe. My 6 year old was so sad summer camp ended. The staff & Marc are great and genuinely caring. The kids have fun & learn all the basic fundamentals of sports. Dana & the Fuller boys

    Yes, I couldn’t agree more. It is the best, and run by the nicest people. You want nice people at the helm of any camp where you are sending your kids, and they have such a great time!! We have been going for years and I highly recommend it. Don’t be scared off by the “sports” aspect; my son is not into sports and loves it. Some of his friends are, and they love it too.

    Iverbe provides a wonderful way to keep kids active and stimulated on their school breaks. My son has been fortunate enough to attend for the past two summers and he stays motivated through the school year in hopes that he will be rewarded with Iverbe. The people that run the programs are so warm and inviting. They quickly embrace the kids and remember them from year to year. Iverbe is absolutely awesome!
