Galva Wildcat Basketball Camp 2009 - a basketball camp for boys entering grades 5-8 - will be held July 20-24 at Galva High School. Registration is underway.

The camp will run daily from 6 to 8 p.m. in the high school gym. Basic offensive and defensive skills will be taught, as well as team concepts. Galva High School and Galva Junior High School coaching staffs will be present to instruct and assist campers.

Cost is $10. A camp t-shirt will be provided.

Pick up registration forms at the Galva School District 224 administrative office. Forms can also be picked up from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Galva News, 348 Front St.

A special “Midnight Madness” will follow the final evening of camp, with campers staying over night in the gym. Basketball movies and videos will be shown, special contests will be held, and food will be available - all as a celebration of the camp closing. Campers should bring a sleeping bag and pillow.

Parents who wish to chaperone the Midnight Madness event can contact Jon Zahm at (815) 483-4710.
