Group of Former NBA Players Announce Basketball Camp in Nampa
When it comes to sports in the Treasure Valley, there is no denying that kids and adults alike are big fans. While for years, Boise State's football program was the crowned jewel of the sports scene here in town--these days, the basketball program has gained a whole lot of steam in town.
For two consecutive years, the men's basketball program at Boise State has advanced to March Madness--and been dominant in the Mountain West. It's fair to say they have made a lot of basketball fans out of this town!
With no professional teams here in the Treasure Valley, or anywhere in Idaho, our local collegiate programs are often as close to 'the big time' as many kids in our area will get. Not for long, however, as a group of retired NBA players have announced they're organizing a basketball camp--and it's coming to Nampa.
Organized by Tate George (5-year veteran), Chucky Atkins (11-year veteran), Chris Smith (3-year veteran), and Chris Gatling (11-year veteran)-- all sorts of skills and tips will be offered to local kids on the days of June 12-15 and July 10th -13th.

What we love most is that these players are offering scholarships to kids who might otherwise not be able to attend.
If you are interested in applying for a scholarship to the camp, contact the organizers the following ways:
- Email: email@example.com
- Phone: 208-948-4143
Deadline for scholarships is 11:59pm on May 15, 2023 and only apply to the June dates--session 1 or session 2--not both.
