It must be summer, because the youth sports camps conducted by Jones County High School’s coaching staff kicked off on Monday with girls’ softball and boys’ basketball camps at the school.

About 80 girls and 35 boys participated in the first day of drills as the coaches and current and former high school players offered instruction and encouragement. They went over fundamentals and made sure to leave plenty of time for simple fun for the youngsters involved.

More camps are to follow, with baseball and girls’ basketball scheduled for next week, football and cheerleading the week after, and soccer, dance and tennis camps coming later in the summer.

The Jones County Recreation Department also began two weeks of camp on Monday, with the first week devoted to sports activities and the second week to be outdoors related.

More information on the upcoming camps, including dates, times, ages and fees, can be found in the Sporting Calendar on page B2. Also, more photos can be found there, and online at photos.jcnews.com.
