High school summer camps start next week

SHARE High school summer camps start next week

New York Knicks guard Iman Shumpert is coming home again for his annual youth basketball camp next month at Oak Park-River Forest. | Tom Cruze~Sun-Times Media.

I am not sure how Oak Park-River Forest graduate Iman Shumpert became one of my wife’s favorite NBA players. She didn’t start following him until he went to Georgia Tech, perhaps after I told her about his OPRF history. It’s probably not because of the new Kid-inspired hairdo from the 90s hip-hop duo Kid ‘n Play. It’s likely because of the name. I think she just likes it.

For the second consecutive year, Shumpert (@I_am_Iman) is bringing his youth basketball camp to OPRF July 8-10. Registration is available at his website. Here is his Facebook page.

The next few months are a busy time for camps of all sports. The bulk of high school camps for youth players begin next week after final exams are completed this week. OPRF boys basketball coach Matt Maloney begins his camp then. Youth players can sign up at the school’s athletic office. Check your local high school for what camps they are offering. There is just about a youth camp for all sports, from badminton to volleyball.

Here are the links for the youth camp sign up dashboards for Hinsdale Central and Hinsdale South.
