School's out, but the learning process can continue for aspiring athletes, thanks to a number of youth sports camps scheduled over the next two months.
Children can get their kicks in soccer, or they can cover all the bases on the baseball or softball diamond. They can brush up on their golf skills, or fulfill some hoop dreams. Another court is calling in volleyball, and there's even a chance to cheer.
For young athletes that don't mind smiling while they're working up a sweat, one of the following camps could be a perfect place to spend some time this summer:
