The YMCA in Hopkinsville is hosting three different camps for three different sports in the coming weeks.

Starting as early as next week, the Y is hosting tennis, golf and archery lessons and camps this summer.

On the tennis courts, Zena and Newcomb Maddux will teach children 6-14 the fundamentals and different aspects of playing tennis. The first class is already underway and will continue until Thursday.

After that, there are still two more 10-day windows to participate. One from June 17-27, and the other will start on July 8 and span to the 18th.

The class is from 4:30-5:30 p.m. and costs $60 for members at the YMCA and $75 for non-members.

Over on the golf course, it will be a four-day golf camp for ages 6-14, starting on July 8 and ending on July 12 with a day off on the 10th.

Ages six to nine will be on the course from 5-6:30 p.m. Ages 10-14 will take the course after them, starting at 6:30 p.m. and ending at 8 p.m.

The camp will be led by former Lindsey Wilson College golfer Jonathan Grabara. For YMCA members it will cost $55, while non-members will pay $65 for their kids to attend the camp.

Western Hills Golf Course will be called home for the four-day camp.

Finally, the Y will give children the chance to shoot a bow and arrow at an Olympic style target at their outdoor archery camp.

The camp ranges from seven to 13 years of age and has dates spread out through the back half of July.

Sessions will be held on July 15,16, 18, 22, 23 and 25. There will be two different sessions if the number allows. The first starting at 5 p.m. and ending at 6:30 p.m., the second session will begin immediately after at 6:30 and end at 8 p.m.

Registration for the camp began on May 20, but does not end until July 12. YMCA members will pay $55 for the event, while non-members will owe $70.
