Brighter days are ahead and Roland Park Country School is excited to once again offer its “Play Like the REDS” unique summer experience. Now in its third year, through several sport-specific camps, RPCS coaches create fun, competitive and supportive athletic environments for girls ages 8-18 to learn more about lacrosse, basketball, running, field hockey, volleyball and rowing. Flexible scheduling options are also offered for busy families. We caught up with RPCS Athletics Director Carol Hatton to learn more!
