Due to a lack of sign-ups, the girls basketball camp for girls entering grades 3-6 is being canceled.

Of the few who have signed up, a full refund will be given.

The camp for girls entering grades seven through 12 is still on. The signups have been solid for that camp, and we will continue to accept sign-ups for those grade levels.

Several area sports camps are being offered in various sports beginning later this month of May.
