Our Canadian campers got to enjoy a week of training and development with the DeMarre Carroll Camp Staff. Each day, campers got to enjoy a healthy lunch prepared by Chef Pino Di Cerbo, water from Smarty Pants Water, and healthy snacks to fill their appetite.

Campers also got to experience some off-court activities. Each day, a special guest speaker would come speak to the kids about various topics such as active and healthy living. Between the classroom sessions by the guest speaker and on-court activities, our campers had a great combination of learning and developing on and off the court. DeMarre Carroll showed up to the camp for the final two days of camp and ensured the campers put in that #HardWork!
