Deputy Ward will be hosting a Basketball Camp this summer at Sidney Lanier High School, June 6th – 10th for boys and girls ages 4 – 14 from 8:30 am – 3:30 pm.

We know that parents are looking for good programs for their children during the summer months and we would like for them to take advantage of a great basketball tutorial program. This will not only help keep the children occupied but will also give them the knowledge and skills of basketball which will be a great asset for the community.
