Join Bobby For Superhero Sports At Players Indoor this fall

Our very own Director Bobby Dobroski will be leading the Superhero Sports program this fall at Players Indoor Sports Center for children ages 2 to 6.  The goal of Superhero Sports is to promote continued athletics by building soccer, baseball and basketball basics that will last a lifetime. Classes will strengthen each child’s ability to work as a part of a team which will be reflected in all parts of their life as well as in future successes, and help each child understand they can be heroes in their community by helping the people around them.

Bobby has years of experience as directing and teaching experience for our camps as well as Poko Loko Early Learning Centers. Bobby earned a masters in early childhood education from National-Louis University in 2007 and is currently training for the Chicago Marathon. Chicago will mark his eleventh overall completed marathon. 

You can learn more about the Superhero Sports program and sign up your children at

If you have friends with younger children and want to tell them about Good Times,  this would be a great way for them to get a taste of our camping experience.
