They Shoot … They Score!

The Takoma Park Recreation Center is offering its annual Dribble Pass and Shoot spring break basketball camp for youth ages 5 – 12. The Dribble Pass and Shoot Camp is one of our most popular camps and has a lot of returning kids. Campers will be provided with excellent coaching that allows each participant to develop a sense of pride and individual accomplishment. The level of instruction will be adjusted to fit the individual needs of each participant.

This fun-filled camp will focus on fundamentals. Experienced co-ed counselors with positive attitudes will be on hand to provide fun basketball related games that will keep the participants enthusiastic and engaged while getting them in shape.

Participants love this camp because of the professionalism of the staff and the fun activities they provide. Ryan Bobb one of our returning campers said, “I really liked the three-point contest and the pizza on Friday.”

Romel Williams, our camp director, will be returning for his fourth year with this camp. Coach Williams has put together a fun-filled curriculum that includes games that allow the campers to use their brains as well as their physical skills. Coach Williams said, “I love coming back to this camp year after year because the campers are eager to learn and I love sharing my passion for the game of basketball with them.”

Campers will have an opportunity to play full-court basketball games with a referee and scoreboard. Teams will be divided evenly by age and skill set. This is a great opportunity for kids to make new friends or spend time with classmates during their spring break.

Camp will be held from April 10 – April 14 at the Takoma Park Recreation Center Gymnasium. Camp will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. We ask that you bring a non-perishable lunch Monday through Thursday. On Friday, lunch will be provided by the recreation center. For parents that need additional activities beyond the regular camp hours, we are offering before care as well as after care for an additional fee. During before and after care, kids can take advantage of this time with staff improving their dribbling or shooting skills. For more information or to register for camp, visit
