SPOTSWOOD, NJ - School's out for summer in one more day in the Spotswood School District. For parents looking for summertime activities, the Spotswood Youth Baseball and Softball League will be holding their third annual summer camp. The camp is for players ages five through 15 and all skill levels are welcome.

Camp will be held on Wednesdays in August from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. at the SYBSL fields on the grounds of Spotswood High School. One field will be utilized for softball while the other will be used for baseball. Camp will begin on Wednesday, August 2 and run on August 9, August 16, August 23 and August 30.
