Sports are for all ages, sizes, and skill levels, and San Luis Obispo will be displaying that all summer long for the 7th annual SLO High Sports Camps at Laguna Middle School.

The first week of camp kicked off on Monday with around 170 kids in attendance, ages four to 13.

The SLO High Sports Camps run for 10 weeks during the summer on a week-by-week basis with campers having the option to attend the morning session, afternoon session, or full-day program.

SLO High coaches, athletes, teachers, and volunteers assist the campers with a variety of different sports and exercises throughout the day.

SLO High athletic director Jeff Brandow says these camps are a great way to stay involved with the community and keep kids active during the summer.

“The kids aren’t on their phones, the workers aren’t on their phones, they’re connecting, they’re interacting, they’re being kids. It’s a great thing to watch,” Brandow said. We’re playing kickball, we’re playing capture the flag, basketball, volleyball, football, and a variety of sports. We’re keeping them active. We keep them active and keep them moving.”

Brandow continued, “The goal is to make sure they have fun, make friends, and learn some new skills. Most of the time they’re tired by the time they get home which can make the parents happy.”
