Members of Challenger Sports’ British Soccer Camp staff will be at the Christa McAuliffe Park in Cameron Park on Thursday, May 16, running a series of free Skills Clinic sessions. They will also be on hand to tell players and parents more about the popular British Soccer Camp program which has proved to be a great hit in Cameron Park during the past summers.
The free Skills Clinic will be running as follows: 5 to 6 p.m. is reserved for 3- to 5-year-olds; 6 to 7 p.m. is reserved for 6- to 12-year-olds. You must register for this event at registration.challengersports.com. Space is limited.
The British Soccer Camp this year will be taking place June 17-21 and July 22-26 at Christa McAuliffe Park. For more information visit registration.challengersports.com. Sign up your child up for the May 16 summers camp and they can get their free British soccer jersey there and then, even though it is past the deadline for June 17-21 camp. (While supplies last. If your child’s size is unavailable it will be shipped for free.) The jersey deadline for the July camp is June 7.
Almost Spectacular time
Vendors are needed for the 14th annual Summer Spectacular scheduled Saturday, June, 29, at Cameron Park Lake. Gates open at 2 p.m. and the event concludes with a world-class fireworks show. This is the can’t miss event of the summer. This event has something for all ages — great music, food, drinks, vendors, activities for children and adults, crafts and an amazing fireworks display on the lake. The CPCSD is currently accepting vendor applications for crafters, exhibitors and food. Pre-sale wristbands will be on sale soon.
Swim lesson scholarships
Cameron Park CSD has received money from Wells Fargo to use for swim lesson scholarships. Be water safe. As the weather heats up for summer, it is essential that your child develops water safety life skills. Swim lessons prevent unnecessary water accidents. The Cameron Park CSD is offering scholarships for low-income families to ensure all children learn these important skills. If you’re interested apply today, as lessons fill up quickly, Scholarship forms can be picked up at the CSD office and limited funds are available.
