New APEX Sports Camps to Take Place at The Pyramid on Shea Boulevard

By Lila Baltman

If your child wants to have a terrific time socializing and playing a variety of different sports, you will want to learn about the all-new APEX Sports Camps facility located in the recently remodeled building known as “The Pyramid” that’s next door to the Fry’s Marketplace at Tatum and Shea Boulevard.

This 22,000 square foot, climate-controlled building has been specially re-designed to offer boys and girls, ages 6 to 14, top-notch, professional instruction year-round in basketball, volleyball, badminton, pickle-ball, dodge ball, NERF football, Wiffle ball, and chess. The Pyramid has also become the new, state-of-the-art facility for the rapidly growing DreamTeam Academy youth basketball program that recently moved out of its location in the Scottsdale Airpark.

This summer, APEX Sports Camps will offer a day camp program on weekdays from June 7 through August 6. Half-days will be from 8:30 a.m. to noon and full days will be from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. After care will be available from 3 to 6 p.m. Campers will be grouped by age and skill level. For children who strictly want to focus on basketball training, the DreamTeam Academy will offer fundamental training and competitive play.

APEX Sports Camps at The Pyramid is located at 4633 E. Shea Boulevard.
