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. In the event of bad weather, the rain date is the following Friday.

The cost for Spotswood residents is $35 while the fee for non-residents is $40. If a child tried out for a summer league and did not make the team, the cost of the SYBSL Summer Camp is free. The cost includes a t-shirt and hat. Unlimited water will be available on the field and each player will enjoy an Italian ice after each session. On the last day of camp, there will be a pizza party.

Kids will learn the fundamentals of the game or reinforce and refine skills while participating in fun drills and games. A special instructor may be added by the time camp begins on August 2, but those details have not yet been finalized by the SYBSL.
