Donner Lake Beach Volleyball Camp

Truckee, CA


Individuals and Teams Welcome!


What a great way to spend the summer. Our beach volleyball camps are a summer experience every volleyball player will want to have. With a super fun atmosphere, we offer lots of skills, game scenarios, and competitions. The beach game teaches great ball control skills, movement, covering the court, game instincts, strategy and it is just really fun. Camp ends with a fun beach volleyball tournament.


The Donner Lake Beach Volleyball Camp highlights our lake front beach and grass volleyball courts for a fun summer experience!  For players of all levels from 5th through 12th grade reach their peak.


We have great skills training, game scenarios and competitions.  Playing outdoors on our sand and grass volleyball courts help players become more dynamic athletes, adds an element of focus with ball control, and creates an assertive "my ball" mentality in their game.  It also exposes players to a more competitive and success oriented mindset.


With our beautiful location and environment, participants get to take advantage of beach and water activities!  Lunch break is on the beach too!  This camp is a one of the highlights during summer vacation!
