Both the Flag Football Camp and Youth Tennis Camp will run from Monday to Thursday next week to get things rolling.

Dave Brown will lead the first of two sessions of the Youth Tennis Camp next week, with players 11 and under attending from 9 to 10:45 a.m. and players ages 12-18 attending from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The camp will focus on strokes, scoring, strategy and game situations at Jaquith Park.
