which provide a glimpse into life on a college campus.
“This is an
exciting opportunity for young athletes to visit our state’s largest universities and work directly with notable coaches
and student athletes,” said Maureen Moore, Communications Manager of EnergyUnited. “The camps teach valuable lessons
that will benefit students not only on the basketball court, but also in life. I encourage all interested students to apply.”
