The mercury finally appears to be rising as is the excitement for Bishop’s University Summer Sports Camps. The department of athletics is pleased to offer a variety of bilingual summer camp options for the youth of the area and afar. Details, facility tours and many coaches and athletes will be on hand at the Camp Open House on Wednesday, May 14 at 7 p.m. in the John H. Price Sports Centre Lobby. The Gaiters coaches and players will once again lead these camps opening with Football for youth ages 10-17. It takes place June 22-27. Two weeks of the ever-popular basketball camp for 10-17 year olds is back from June 29-July 4 and July 6-11. Although already sold out golf camp also returns from July 7-11 for 8-14 year olds, there is a waiting list. Making its debut in 2014 is soccer camp set to run from July 27-August 1 for 5-16 year olds. Also new this sum-
mer will be a number of multi-sport camps. A new one will run each week of the summer from June 23 through August 22 for 5-16 year olds. “We have a great list of camps this year,” said Stephen Jalbert, the Camp Coordinator at Bishop’s. “Having the Gaiters coaches on board really makes these camps credible. We are also really excited to be able to offer each and every camp bilingually to cater to all campers whether from the area or somewhere farther away.” All camps with the exception of golf camp offer both residential and day options. Complete details and a list of prices can be found at www.gaiters.ca/ camps or by dropping by the open house.
