Chapel Hill Basketball Camp for Young Adults With Developmental Disabilities Scheduled for May

A group of 20 young adults with developmental disabilities are in for a lot of fun this May as they attend a unique basketball camp in Chapel Hill with exciting closing day events that will create memories to last a lifetime.

PRLog - May 1, 2013 - CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- A group of 20 young adults with developmental disabilities are in for a lot of fun this May as they attend a unique basketball camp in Chapel Hill.

They will be taking part in the EV Spectrum Skills Camp at Extraordinary Ventures on South Elliott Road from May 28 to May 31. For many of the campers these four days will be a highlight of the year, and the exciting closing day events will create memories to last a lifetime.

The camp will include basketball drills, arts and crafts, field trips and social opportunities for campers. The activities are designed to provide a healthy social environment for young adults with developmental disabilities who would otherwise be at home.

Of last year's camp, organizer Stefan Hansen said, "not only did the camp help individuals socially, but it motivated many of our campers to sign up for the Special Olympics and other team sports."

The conclusion of the camp on May 31 will feature a scrimmage on the court of the Tar Heels' own Carmichael Arena followed by an awards luncheon at Extraordinary Ventures. The final day festivities are open to families and the public.

Registration for the camp costs $20. Scholarships are available. Sponsors include Brixx, Chick-fil-A, Jersey Mike's, Merritt's Store & Grill, Empower Personalized Fitness and Bombshell Studios.
