Summer Camps 2019: Sports

Kids_and_sports.jpg

This time two years ago, beneath the dull winter skies (much like this morning’s), 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 I’m updating each list for the 2019 summer. This week's list is Sports Camps, but you can also check out the other camp updates for art, theater, music, STEM, nature, animals, social studies & languages, preschool & special needs, and day camps. (You’ll be able to tell which camp lists have been updated since they will have 2019 in the title, but many camps have the same Web site each year, so the old lists will still get you started to find some great 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.
