Our first-ever athletics themed travel program is set to begin Summer 2019! Across two exciting weeks, visiting students from China immerse themselves into the world of basketball through direct lessons,
Students begin the program with a week in the Bay Area, where they participate in sightseeing across San Francisco and the surrounding areas before beginning a five day training program sponsored by the Golden State Warriors! Together with American students, the group will hone in on their basketball skills and make friends with other students from across the world.
At the end of the week of camp, students will travel to Las Vegas to see the NBA Summer League, as well as go on sightseeing trips across Las Vegas, and do a day trip to both the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon. They come back for a second round of the summer league before getting ready to return home.
How Can I Get Involved?
Our pilot of the West Coast Basketball Camp already has students recruited and is currently closed from further enrollment. We hope to launch future iterations of this program for students from all over the world.
Current college students and recent graduates are welcome to apply to be counselors for this program. For the East Coast Basketball Camp, knowledge of Chinese language and culture, as well as basketball, is preferred.
