The La Grande Volleyball Camp for boys and girls from third through sixth grades is planned for June 12-13.

The camp, coordinated by La Grande High School head coach Teresa Dowdy, will be held at the high school from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Coaches Lin Casciato, Ruthie Becker and high school players will help conduct the camp.

Campers will receive a T-shirt and there will be awards for participants.

The camp is designed to be both fun and challenging, and helps players develop basic skills and confidence, organizers said. There will be a camp store and snack bar.

Participants need to bring shoes, knee pads, a sack lunch and a water bottle.

The cost is $40. Contact Dowdy for more information at 963-2950 or 663-3327.

All proceeds go to the LHS volleyball team. The La Grande Optimist Club is sponsoring the camp.

La Grande's volleyball team is also sponsoring a camp for children in the seventh through 12th grade, July 21-22.

Preregistration deadline for the camp is July 1. Preregistration cost is $75.
