Lady Defenders Camp wraps up summer basketball

Nearly 200 campers and coaches attended Lady Defenders Basketball week at BBC, the last of three special weeks of focused camps for school-age children and teens.

BBC&SLed by BBC Women's Head Basketball Coach and Assistant Athletic Director Amber Jacobs, the July 8-12 event connected spiritual growth with improvements on the court.

"I like this camp much better than others I have been to," said Morgan Mills of Moosic, PA. "We get a lot of help. I feel like I'm actually learning a lot and the dorms are really nice."

More than 500 campers and coaches attended Defender, Lady Defender, and Big Blue basketball camps. The weeks included activities in the new Recreation Center on campus, the first use of the new building.

Time spent learning with veteran coaches and dedicated college athletes makes an impact as players take part in athletics throughout the year.

"They work with us one-on-one or in small groups, and they focus on the fundamentals and build slowly so you know you're doing it the right way," said Terah Lee Hayner of Sunbury, PA. "My favorite part is instruction time because it focuses on the individual things that you're going to do in every single game."
