Every summer, the echo of bouncing basketballs, the squeak of sneakers, and laughter fill the air at Whol’s Recreation Center.

The camp provides a unique opportunity for children ranging from ages 8 to 16 to learn from one of the best players in the NBA, while also providing a safe, fun, and encouraging environment for them to thrive.

Jayson Tatum’s basketball camp is more than just about basketball. It's about teaching life skills using the game as a platform. Each year, Tatum and his team of experienced coaches design drills and games to not only improve a player's technical skills, but also to teach them valuable lessons about teamwork, discipline, and perseverance. The camp is structured to ensure that every participant, regardless of their skill level, can benefit from the experience. From learning to make a layup to perfecting a three-point shot, the camp offers something for everyone.

What truly sets Tatum’s camp apart however, is the personal involvement of Jayson Tatum himself. Unlike some celebrity-hosted camps, Tatum is not just a figurehead.
