The Portland Timbers and Thorns are proud to offer soccer summer camps to players of all ages and genders through the Portland Metro Area and beyond!
At our recreational camps, 5-13 year-olds can play at Providence Park, head over to Hillsboro, or join us in any of our new locations including Tigard and Lents Park to learn the basics of soccer! Our recreational camp is one of our most popular camps that will teach players the fundamentals of the game and allow participants to grow love for and experience how fun soccer can truly be. Our recreational camps hold a variety of stations covering topics such as dribbling, passing, finishing, tactical, small-sided games, individual skills to beat an opponent, receiving, and possession with a purpose. While implementing important soccer fundamentals, we will also use our TREES acronym to help develop campers into a better player and person. TREES stands for Teamwork, Respect, Effort, Environment, and Sportsmanship.
At our Goalkeeper & Striker Camps, 8-18 year-olds can come to Providence Park to learn what it takes to be the best. Camp curriculum will focus on developing the necessary skills for these specific positions and all camp coaches have played or are trained in coaching these two positions. Athletes will get 1 on 1 training from our certified coaches as well as scrimmage experience against other registered strikers/goalkeepers.
Our Residential Camp for players 13-18 years old is specifically designed to provide an experience of what it's like to train and compete like collegiate and professional athletes. Our residential camps are recommended to all future Timbers/Thorns Academy players, ODP players, club players, high school players/teams, and players looking to play at the collegiate level. Players will be trained and evaluated by Portland Timbers/Thorns Academy, ODP, and RTC coaching staff. This camp is open to individuals, and club or high school teams.
