Norwood has said the camp is one of his “favorite weeks of the year,” as it brings together athletes from all of the area schools for five days of fun.

MDI High School student athletes, including Hannah Chamberlain, Lindsey McEachern, Mac Shea, Owen Mild and Colby Lee, are helping out as assistant coaches.
