STAMFORD, Conn. -- Chelsea Piers Connecticut is adding six new camps to its 2016 Summer Camp roster.

The Half-Day Little Athletes Club Camp, Dance Camp, Baseball Camp, Elite Bluestreak Football Academy, Elite Bluestreak Combine Prep and the NWHL Girls Hockey Camp will be joining the list of over 30 camps offered this summer.

Another addition is an extra Fairfield County bus transportation route. During camp weeks three through six (July 5-29), bus transportation will be offered to and from Chelsea Piers for full-day campers over 5 years old from Wilton, Weston and Norwalk. This route will be in addition to the existing Westchester County option, serving campers living in Pelham, New Rochelle, Rye and Harrison.

In the Half-Day Little Athletes Club Camp, campers ages 4-6 will spend two weeks on both swimming and tennis. Campers will also participate in arts and crafts, and field sports -- mini-golf, t-ball and soccer.

Dance Camp will expose students ages 8-12 to key components in dance, with an emphasis on technique, performance, conditioning and artistic range. Classes will include hip-hop, jazz, modern and musical theater.

The Baseball Camp, for players ages 8-12, makes full use of Chelsea Piers' facility, using live-arm hitting tunnels, the infield for glove work and bullpens, the large fields for full-scale scrimmages, and state-of-the-art batting cages.

The Bluestreak Football Academy, for players ages 8-12, will focus on building fundamentals and a strong football IQ. Curriculum includes a mini combine to teach speed, quickness and agility, as well as seven-on-seven flag football games.

The Bluestreak Combine Prep will give athletes ages 13-18 tools to master combine tests, including the 40-yard dash, broad jump, vertical jump, L-drill and more.

The NWHL Girls Hockey Camp is in partnership with the National Women's Hockey League and the Connecticut Whale. Campers ages 8-15 have the opportunity to train with six top players from the NWHL.

Depending on the sport, camps run weekly from June 20 to Sept. 2. Registration is on a week-by-week basis, and early bird pricing is available through April 29. For more information on individual camps, visit the website.
