CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - June 20, 2014 - PRLog -- The third annual EV Spectrum Skills Camp is starting on Monday with almost fifty percent more campers than in 2013. Twenty three young adults with developmental disabilities are in for a lot of fun as they attend the unique basketball camp in Chapel Hill.

For many of the campers these five days will be a highlight of the year, and the exciting closing day events will create memories to last a lifetime.

The camp is hosted by Extraordinary Ventures on South Elliott Road and runs from June 23 through June 27.

In 2013, there were sixteen campers for four days.

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 June 27 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.
