Ogdensburg - Registration is open for Sportscamp where boys and girls ages 11-15 blend quality basketball and soccer training with personal and spiritual growth.
Sportscamp is held at Wadhams Hall. This year the camp session begins July 14 at 3 p.m and concludes July 18 at noon.
Deacon Brian Dwyer, diocesan director of youth ministry, said, “we are entering our 19th year of camp and we are most grateful for the support the camp receives each year in donations and scholarships which help make camp a reality for many of our youth.
“Most recently we received a $500 donation from Stewarts to be used for general needs of the camp,” he said.
“We are looking forward to July to assist our campers to be good athletes and good disciples,” Deacon Dwyer said.
The program is designed to be a quality sports camp with a strong spiritual component.
There is a significant amount of time for learning and playing under the direction of experienced coaches. There is also time for prayer, liturgy, and for reflection on some life skills that can be gained through sports.
In addition, the program is filled with other camp activities.
