Penticton Basketball Camp is offering its 36th consecutive camp this summer.

The camp is open to players entering grades 7 to 12 in September.

“Over the years it has become one of the most successful camps in the province focusing on basketball skills, while incorporating some fun into the sport,” said Penticton Basketball Camp organizer Fred Fedorak. “Good fundamentals are so important for players to improve their skill level and confidence.”
