Since 2015, Five Strong has been hosting Special Skills Sports camps that have been attended by more than 2,000 athlete participants at no cost to them. In the beginning, football and basketball camps were held at Ohio State University facilities, while soccer camps took place at the Columbus Crew’s indoor facility. Recently, Five Strong transitioned into a partnership with Recreation Unlimited. Now, it hosts full-day camps at the Recreation Unlimited Campus just north of Columbus, Ohio. These Five Strong Camps combine activity with camaraderie and have become a day that every camper eagerly awaits.
