COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Columbia's parks department is wrapping up a sports camp being held in conjunction with the University of South Carolina. 

Officials from the parks and recreation department and the university are gathering Friday for a ceremony to round out the sixth annual camp. 

Each Friday for the past eight weeks, a different group of children has participated in activities including track and field, soccer, basketball and cheerleading. The events are staffed by Gamecock coaches and athletes, and the kids get a chance to be exposed to new sports while on South Carolina's main campus. 

Officials say more than 300 children have been served through this year's program.
