Last year, they hosted more than 350 campers in multiple sessions. The emphasis of the program is to teach the fundamentals of the game in part of a fun and competitive basketball experience, but also to emphasize the Life Skills necessary to be successful in school and life, both intellectually, and socially.

The camp is run by the coaching staff at Sealth with the help of many high school and college students who are put through a lengthy mentorship training in order to be prepared to work with the campers.

In a press release the organizers said, "While we enjoy teaching the game of basketball and providing a positive week on the court, we pride ourselves on our Life Skills curriculum which includes a classroom session daily, emphasizing the values of our program. Camp runs from 9am-4pm each day, and each camper will receive and camp t-shirt and Camper Handbook which will include hand-outs and topics from our Life Skills classroom sessions. In addition, we are excited to offer an ‘Advanced Concepts’ session this year (August 19th-23rd).

This session is geared towards campers 6th grade and up. Brochure with further information and registration forms are available on the Chief Sealth International High School website.

Contact Coach Colin Slingsby at caslingsby@seattleschools.org with any questions about the program.
