So Many Summer Camps

     Sports coverage at this time of year around here has to deal with summer camps and oh are there many to choose from.  Basketball, football and the like and young kids can take their pic, boys or girls.  I don't know who has the best-- they all advertise the best instruction by the best counselors, etc.

     When I grew up we had maybe one basketball camp my four years of high school and that was in Battle Creek.  In those days we played baseball in the street and organized it all ourselves.  And we became pretty good ballplayers too.  But the world has changed and organized camps are everywhere for those who have the money to send their kids each day during any particular week.

     I don't know how much better kids get at any of these sports-- I think if any of them have natural ability it helps make them so much better.  Kids specialize these days-- they don't play several sports in high school anymore-- they all seem to specialize.  But on the news at night for the next few weeks you'll be seeing familiar faces back in the area working various summer camps.
