Camp is open to 5th-7th grade boys and girls of all schools and skill levels.

Basketball Camp check-in time is 9:45-10:00 am. Please register by March 8, 2013. Cost is $12.00, which includes Mini-Camp registration, lunch and a t-shirt.  Click here to learn more and download the registration form.

After lunch, cheer on the kids as they use their new basketball skills and take on the SLC Lakers and Lady Lakers! Enjoy half-time entertainment, a 3-point local celebrity shoot off, music, concessions, and raffles during the game. Here’s a fun twist - all SLC players will play the game wearing oversized inflatable boxing gloves! Game time is 1:30 pm; admission is $2.00 for adults, $1.00 for SLC students and kids. This is a fun-filled family event with all proceeds benefitting Look Ahead Lakers, the college-access and mentoring program of Silver Lake College in cooperation with Lakeshore Technical College.
