Basketball And Life Skills
Each summer, hospital five-day Basketball and Life Skills Camps are conducted in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area. The camp offers comprehensive values-centered programs that use basketball as a linchpin to address issues challenging today’s youth.
Camps promote anger management, conflict resolution, teamwork, and good sportsmanship and habits while helping youth stay occupied in productive activities. Life skills are taught to increase youths’ abilities to resist negative peer pressure and help improve academic performance. Educators and sports personalities serve as instructors for daily sessions that take place at selected local school gyms.
