Summer Camps 2018: Sports

Kids_and_sports.jpg

This time last year, beneath the dull winter skies, my thoughts turned to summer. Turns out, I wasn't the only one. The Madison Area Parents & Community Facebook page exploded with requests for summer day camp recommendations. To help make the search a little easier on all of us, I compiled several themed lists of day camps on A Madison Mom, all within a relatively short drive from Madison. Now updating each list for the 2018 summer. This week's list is Sports Camps, but keep an eye out in the coming weeks for the other camp updates for art, theater, music, science, nature, history, and preschool camps. Many camps don't have their dates/pricing on their Web sites yet, but you can check back later. If you have any to add, please list them in the comments section. BASEBALL
