For more than 35 years the Antiochian Village Camp has been blessed to host the SOPA/SOYO Multi-Sports Training Camp. Each year more than 300 Special Olympic Pennsylvania athletes, coaches and Teen SOYO coaches gather for this week-long camp that focuses on sports training. The athletes train in Basketball, Bocce, Bowling, Flag Football, Floor Hockey, Golf, Soccer, Softball, Swimming, Tennis, Track & Field and Volleyball. In the evenings they have dances, karaoke night, carnival night, movie night and much more. The week culminates in competition day where the athletes utilize the skills and their talents to compete in their primary sports. This week-long camp is offered at no cost to the athletes as an ongoing ministry of the Antiochian Village Camp and NAC Teen SOYO.
