It has been a full summer of basketball camps. Teaching both young kids and young adults the game of basketball, but one camp in Albany takes it a step farther. Albany State basketball coach Chris Cameron has been running his own camp for the last 15 years teaching kids from ages 4-17 the fundamentals of basketball.
Cameron said, "Here at ASU we have a three day camp where we try and teach kids the basics in the game of basketball and in the game of life."
Coach Cameron's camp not only works on the fundamentals of the game, but also what it means to have good sportsmanship and character both on and off the court.
Cameron said, "Basketball is a game of habit, and if we can get kids to learn good habit at a young age, then it will help them maybe get that starting spot on varsity one day."
The camp hosted about 60 kids and went from Wednesday to Friday from 9am to 12pm. At the end of the day and after all the drills were finished, campers were teamed up to play either 3-on-3 or 5-on-5 to showcase their new skills.
