What to Expect
Learn what it will take for you to take your vault to the next level! Whether you’re fine tuning your skills or learning how to pole vault for the very first time, our world-class coaches will give you the tools you need to raise the bar.
Each camper will be placed in a group with vaulters at a similar level so coaching/training for each group is very focused. Our coach-to-athlete ratio is fantastic and will ensure that every single vaulter will receive a ton of one-on-one time from the best coaching staff in the country!
Kiss the Sky Pole Vault Camp is not just a pole vault camp! When you join us, you can expect a true summer camp experience. You can expect huge amounts of fun, group activities, meaningful moments, hiking, and plenty of pole vault!
