BRANDON, MB – With summer around the corner, the Brandon Bobcats are getting ready to hit the court once again. The Bobcats will host their annual Summer Sports Camps again this August in the BU Gymnasium.

The first camp is a co-ed volleyball camp that runs from August 8-12. Designed for students of all skill levels in grades 6-12, this camp teaches individual and team skills.
