The kids were great!

My son was the youngest camper and the smallest camper so I worried about his being accepted and he was easily immersed into the games/drills by all. The kids were great and he had a wonderful time.

Came home happy and Speaking English!

My son attended 3 weeks of camp and loved it.  He met many new friends and he came home so happy and speaking English!  The basketball coach was very knowledgeable and helped him on his shooting. He's been playing on a team here in Turkey and the coaches really think he improved. Everything was so easy. Thank you for offering a great experience for my son.

love basketball

It was nice to meet people you ordinarily wouldn't meet in your usual day to day and share a common goal which is to become a better player regardless of where you come from. The only thing that matters here is that we all love basketball!!!
