For a 3rd year Johnny Jackson Jr Foundation campers blazed the basketball courts of George Washington Carver Senior High school gymnasium (where state champions are created). Boys and girls from 8 to 15 found fun, fitness and friendship while battling for the ball. In addition to drills of shooting, dribbling, defending, rebounding, and passing campers enjoyed a jam packed schedule of gaming, roller skating, swimming, and distinctive discussions from industry professionals. The two week camp culminated in Playoffs and a Championship Game. And for a grand slam, NOLA's most notables came out to give kudos to the kids and let them know that hard work pays off every time.
