For the second year, the Fresno Pacific men’s soccer team led a camp with the Fig Garden Youth Soccer League at Forkner Elementary. Each night for two hours from August 7-9 Sunbird players taught students valuable skills that will help them and their teams in seasons to come.
Fresno Pacific hosted the annual Girl’s Basketball Camp August 7-9, with grades 4-8 meeting in the morning and high school students in the afternoon. Campers learned fundamental skills as well as the importance of being in a team and the value of their teammates. To find out more about summer camps, check out: fresno.edu/summercamps
