The camp is designed to bring together a group of young people whose love of sports/basketball transcends the recent histories of the region. Positive messages about working (and living) together, leadership and leading a healthy, drug-free life will be infused into the basketball instructions.
Afternoon sessions of the camp will include motivational speeches and interactive games to reinforce these messages.
The camp will also include daily workshops and seminars designed to promote leadership, conflict resolution and living a healthy lifestyle.
Seminars will also demonstrate the capacity of sport to transcend boundaries and bring people together while teaching good messages to the campers such as the importance of education, tolerance and understanding.
Through the inspiration, sportsmanship and structure of play and competition proposed peace education program will mount a serious effort to make a difference in the lives of the young people in the region, promoting a certain sense of respect for the game, for the rules, the body and the opponent.
Using sport of basketball, program will help the campers in developing fundamental life skills like learning to better understand and respect diverse cultures and religions that make up their local communities; and by working together to solve problems, overcome obstacles and accomplish common goals.
