A free summer day camp for boys and girls, ages 10-16, will be held at San Diego City College, June 14-July 19, from 12:45-5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The campus is located in downtown San Diego at 1313 12th Avenue.

Sports will include volleyball, basketball, softball, swimming, tennis, soccer and football.

City College has cosponsored the NYSP camp for the past 12 years and is one of the 170 sites across the nation hosting these camps.

Requires physical examinations will be given free of charge on June 5, 9 a.m.-12 noon in the San Diego City College gym, 1450 Park Blvd., across the street from San Diego High School.
