The camp has kids doing drills and learning the basics.

“Basketball is a getaway for these kids, it’s a safe place. the gym is a safe place, there’s a lot of crime and stuff going on, so this camp is a good thing for them,” coach Milton Nash said.

The camp is helping kids develop a love for basketball and be a positive light in the community.
