Founded in 1746, Linden Hall is the nation’s oldest independent boarding and day school for girls. The campus is located in historic Lititz, Pennsylvania; a safe, charming town of 8,000 situated between Harrisburg and Philadelphia. With modern facilities close to each other, Linden Hall provides a great location to host a DTS Overnight Camp.

The 5 full day camp is designed to provide a quality training program in combination with the overnight experience of a soccer camp within a private school setting. Players will improve greatly in a short period of time and will be challenged to think about the game and encouraged to develop all skills in game situations.
The camp is led by our DTS Staff, all of which have KNVB and UEFA licenses. Training will focus on the Dutch Concept of training: Knowing WHAT to do, WHEN to do it and HOW to do it at the technical and tactical speed that is required in the modern game. In addition to soccer practices, games, scrimmages and instruction, the camp will include team building and other non-soccer activities to keep your child interested in the entire week’s activities.
The camp is for girls and boys from 9 to 16 years of age, with housing dedicated to each. In addition to our trainers, the staff will include female chaperones and on site medical staff. Sign-ups are now taking place with limited availability. Teams of 10 or more wishing to sign up will receive a customized camp package (including discounts, trainer request and curricula).
