Great camp experience

Nike Camp was a wonderful experience! I loved
the fact that it was located in a central area of the
city, easily accessible by public transportation. It
was a pleasure meeting NBA players and
improving in skills.

Both sons had a great time

My sons wanted more scrimmage and one‐on‐one
experience and I was glad to see a little of that in the
camp. The boys got a lot of great new ideas to to play
in the driveway and of course they were excited to
meet an NBA player!
