This will be the eighth year for the camp, which is held at Harmon Field and is funded by the Kirby Harmon Field Fun at the Polk County Community Foundation. The camp is open to boys and girls grades third through eighth. Campers are divided into teams representing various countries and each day they work to develop their skills and play a scrimmage. Finally the teams watch an international match and briefly discuss the history of their team’s country. (photo submitted)
