This summer Dare County will offer a variety of day camps and classes including gardening, etiquette, cooking, art, tennis, gymnastics, soccer, basketball, flag football, as well as badminton, kickball and volleyball.

The popular fishing camp is available for boys and girls ages 10 to 12 and runs August 9-13 from 9 a.m. to noon. According to the course description, “Camp includes entry into the Annual Amanda Scarborough Fishing tournament held on Friday August 13th. Campers will learn about types of bait, how to bait a hook, and of course how to tell a fishing story. We will meet at a different pier each day.” Camp fee is $75.
