If you’re looking for a way to keep your children busy this summer — and have some fun playing their favorite sports in the process — then local schools have you covered.

Throughout the months of June and July, students ranging from rising 1st graders to rising college freshmen can participate in a selection of sports camps hosted by Chatham-area schools, including baseball, basketball, cheerleading, football, lacrosse, soccer, softball, tennis and volleyball.

Schools like Central Carolina Community College (Sanford), Chatham Central High School (Bear Creek), Chatham Charter School (Siler City), Jordan-Matthews High School (Siler City), Northwood High School (Pittsboro) and Seaforth High School (Pittsboro) are hosting a total of 30 camps to choose from.

With nearly three dozen camps to sift through, finding the info for each individual school can be difficult and time consuming, which is why the News + Record has put together this 2022 Summer Sports Camp Guide to make it a tad easier to find which camp(s) are right for you.

Camps are organized by school and listed in chronological order.

Central Carolina Community College (CCCC)

High schools aren’t the only ones offering youth summer camps over the next couple of months. CCCC is right there in the mix.
