With the school year ending, summer is here. That means that it’s time to sign-up the kids for summer sports camps. Fortunately, there are lots of options here in Irvine. Some sports camps are suited to fine-tuning athletic skills that kids already have, while others are about learning about new sports and gaining new skills. Most important, the sports camps are about having fun and staying active.

Below, I’ve listed a number of good sports camps — some sponsored and run by the City, others run by private sports clubs. Take a look, and enjoy!
