Modern Sleepaway

Year-round performance, skills for life, and world-class amenities

Some skills are sport specific, and others, such as speed and power, are not. At IMG Academy’s summer sports performance camp, youth athletes develop both speed and power as well as character development, leadership, and personal evolution. Campers will improve their overall athletic performance as well as learn transferable life skills.

We offer day and overnight performance camps, summer, winter, spring break, and other seasonal camps, as well as special rates for teams and groups who want to book together. You can choose the most convenient option, whether it be a winter performance camp or a sleepaway summer performance camp. Overnight camps give athletes the chance to sleepover in Ascender Residence Halls with 24/7 access to campus amenities and a full team of residential mentors.

Stay Local. Play Here.

A perfect option for performance campers or for families on vacation in the Sarasota and Bradenton area, many on- and off-campus housing options are available for adults and families, including the Legacy Hotel, The Lodge, Academy Park Villas, Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota, Holiday Inn Express and Suites and more, including beachfront resorts.
