History

Established in 1996, Takoma Sportscamps provides a full day of summer fun and skills instruction to boys and girls ages 6 ½ to 15. We welcome campers of all skill levels and abilities. Takoma Sportscamps began as Takoma Park Babe Ruth Baseball camp. In response to parents' requests for a local sports camp that offers quality instruction at affordable prices, camp director and founder Louis Hoelman added sessions for basketball and softball. We now offer six one-week sessions of camp that provide kids with a safe, fun, instructional way to spend their summer days.

 

Camp Director

Louis Hoelman teaches Physical Education and is the Varsity Softball Coach and Varsity Team Handball Coach at Montgomery Blair High School. He has built one of the strongest Fast-Pitch Softball programs in the state and was awarded coach of the year by the Gazette in 2006, 2011, and 2014 and by the Washington Examiner in 2006. Louis has also coached Basketball, Cross Country, Field Hockey, and Team Handball at Blair. He taught Physical Education at Piney Branch Elementary School from 1993-1999 and was the Athletic Director for the Silver Spring Boys and Girls Club from 1987-1993. He has been an integral part of Takoma Sportcamps since its inception and is responsible for management, staffing, and daily operations.

 

Camp Staff

Our camp is staffed by coaches and teachers from area public and private high schools, elite college athletes, and high school athletes who have graduated from Takoma Sportscamps and want to give back to the program. We ensure that our staff is knowledgeable about the sports they coach and are trained to make sure campers of all levels have fun and get the most out of camp.
