BENEFITING: Philly Roots

EVENT DATE: Aug 24, 2015

THE STORY:

The 4th Annual Isaiah Thomas and Chris Woods Basketball Camp will take place from August 24-28, 2015. 8:30am-3:30pm at Gambrel Recreation Center near Frankford. We accept youths ages 5-16. We are seeking funds to pay for equipment, water, uniforms, trophies and compensation for our dedicated coaches and staff. The camp occurs at a time after structured summer programs end and before most public schools begin their academic year. This is usually an idle time for youth, and the camp provides positive structured activity. Working parents in the immediate area and the city often do not have the ability to provide structured activity for youth during the day, and this camp provides that. Through drills, skill building and hard work, campers develop a full range of proper basketball techniques all while building fundamentals for fostering positive relationships and networks that can be used in their everyday lives. The camp also teaches the youth how to engage their communities meaningfully through social media and personal interaction. Guest speakers visit the camp daily and have included in previous years community leaders and public officials.
