The summer's nearly over for thousands of Greater New Milford-area youths but many of them have vivid memories of fun times they've experienced at the many sports and recreation camps they attended since June.
Among the late-summer venues have been a trio of camps visited last week by The Spectrum camera.
Sherman Parks & Recreation hosted its annual baseball camp for boys and girls at Veterans Field while Washington Parks & Recreation welcomed dozens of Region 12 children to the Riverwalk field complex for an entertaining, multi-sports experience.
At Carlson's Grove in the Northville district of New Milford, 36 youths participated in a soccer camp held to help raise money for a prospective new creative playground in town. Camp director Greg Marsan reported nearly $2,700 was accumulated from donations of participants' families.
