The 13th Annual MVP Summer Basketball Camp for grades 2 – 4 and 5 – 9 concluded last week. More than 100 young boys and girls came to Luther Middle School to learn the fundamentals of basketball from Camp Director Mike Graceffo and his staff.

Each camper was assigned to a team where they focused on individual instruction such as shooting, passing, ball handling, rebounding, defense and offense. The teams practiced together and then played games at the end of each day.

Graceffo and the entire Burbank Park and Recreation department did a wonderful job of sharing knowledge and advice on the game of basketball. For 13 years this has been a great opportunity for kids to learn the game of basketball and make new friends.

Below are photo galleries of the two basketball camps. The first set of photos is grades 5 – 9 and the second set is grades 2 – 4.
