Camp Lakers Fun For All

Jim CleamonsShort and sweet was the verbiage on the cover of the 2009 Camp Lakers program, which detailed what the organization had to offer for its 10th season on the campus of the University of California-Santa Barbara:

16 Hall of Famers
15 NBA Championships
1 Camp

With two early-July sessions, Camp Lakers featured appearances by five different Lakers players – Shannon Brown, Jordan Farmar, D.J. Mbenga, Josh Powell and Sasha Vujacic – as young hoopsters went through basketball activities for five days and four nights.

“Camp Lakers was started to provide a unique experience for aspiring basketball players between the ages of 10-18,” said Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak. “In addition to many of the Laker coaches, staff and players that appear at the camp many of the nation’s top high school coaches work the camp’s two sessions every year.”
