• CHS, Cedartown Rec department team up for 4th annual clinic

The Cedartown Recreation Department is looking to keep busy this summer with an upcoming basketball camp on the horizon.

Signups are starting this week and continue through mid-July for a camp being held in conjunction with the CHS basketball program for boys and girls ages 6 to 12. Those who get their registration in before July 12 are guaranteed a shirt on the day of the clinic as part of participating.

The three-day camp starts on July 23 from 10 a.m. to noon and will come to an end on July 25. All three days of the camp are scheduled to be held in the Cedartown High gymnasium.

Registration is $10 for participating, and $20 for the camp plus a t-shirt. Prices go up after July 15 to $30 to order a shirt and participate, and it will not be available the day the camp starts according to organizers.

Proceeds from the camp are going to the recreation department and the Cedartown basketball programs to help cover expenses during the seasons.

Those interested in signing up can do so by visiting the Nathan Dean Gym at Bert Wood Park on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 5 to 7:30 p.m., can call 678-822-6260 or visit the recreation department’s new website at
