A week into July already! How summer flies.
The season's summer sports camps are flying by, too, but a few spots remain in camps offered by colleges, professional teams, pro athletes, high schools, grade schools, churches, parks and recreation departments, nonprofit organizations and for-profit enterprises around the area.
The camps cover a variety of sports, including baseball, basketball, football, golf, hockey, jump rope, sailing, soccer, softball, tennis, volleyball and wrestling. Multi-sport camps give participants a chance to try a variety of sports without having to pay for several camps.
Young fans of N.C. State still might find space in the Sidney Lowe Basketball Camp being held July 25-29 at Reynolds Coliseum on the N.C. State campus in Raleigh.
