Now that summer has officially arrived, both on the calendar and in terms of the temperature, area youngsters are taking advantage of a number of recreational opportunities.
Some, such as the Slam ‘n Jam basketball camp at Oakdale Junior High School, are designed to provide an introduction to the sport, while other activities such as swimming at the Riverbank community pool, provide a great respite from the heat.
In recent action, Mustang varsity baseball players hosted a summer tournament on the Oakdale High School campus while the football Mustangs traveled to nearby Ripon High School for some 7 on 7 round robin tournament play.
The Slam ‘n Jam camp runs on Mondays for a few weeks at the junior high.
Swimmers can take advantage of the pools both in Riverbank and Oakdale, with regular hours throughout the week along with swimming lessons and some special aquatic programs.
