Each sport at Ankeny Centennial High School offers a variety of summer camps for students who are interested in learning appropriate skills and techniques that will be used in the individual sports seasons.  This is also a great opportunity to meet the 8th grade coaches.  These low cost, high skill development camps can be found at: www.ankenycamps.com (please check on a regular basis as new camps are constantly being added).
