Approximately 50 students participated in the morning and afternoon sessions. Campers work on fundamentals such as ball handling, dribbling, passing, and shooting. There were also skill contests for the players to evaluate themselves and compete with their friends as well. For more information, see the June 28 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
