We present the analysis of new BVR light curves for the active star SV Cam. The Roche model with spotted areas on the hotter primary component fits satisfactorily all filter observations yielding two spots in intermediate latitudes and covering about 1.5% each of the stellar surface. Both are ~1000 K cooler than surrounding photosphere. The comparison with an earlier season (January/February 2000) suggests that the spots probably evolved in area longitude and latitude but basic and preferred orientation from previous season is confirmed.
