Shaping Champions Beyond the Field

At Camden Military Academy, athletics serve as an integral part of our holistic approach to education, fostering not only physical fitness but also essential values like teamwork, discipline, and perseverance. Our robust athletics program offers a diverse range of sports, providing opportunities for students to excel and grow both on and off the field. Whether it’s through basketball, soccer, wrestling, or one of our other ten interscholastic sports, we emphasize the importance of sportsmanship and dedication. Coaches mentor our students, instilling leadership skills and a strong work ethic while encouraging a healthy balance between academics and athletics. Our goal is to not only develop skilled athletes but also to cultivate well-rounded individuals who embody the principles of commitment, resilience, and camaraderie through their athletic endeavors.


The Academy provides each cadet with a number of athletic opportunities. Football, cross-country, basketball, wrestling, golf, baseball, soccer, lacrosse, track, tennis drill, rifle and marksmanship attract much interest. The Camden Military Academy Spartans, members of the South Carolina Independent School Association (SCISA) are usually strong contenders for honors in South Carolina and the Southeast.


In addition to interscholastic sports, the military academy offers an excellent intramural program as part of the activity period held twice each week. Although engaging in varsity athletics is optional, participation in activity period intramurals is required when a cadet is not involved in sports, which ensures the physical fitness of all cadets.


The Academy’s athletic facilities are available during cadet free time. The cadets enjoy swimming in the military school’s pool during the fall and spring. The military academy gym and weight room are always available. There are three athletic fields and three tennis courts on campus.
