Greenville Basketball Camp About More Than Just Playing Hoops

More than a 180 children are participating in a local basketball camp without paying a dime.

The Outwork Basketball Camp at Epps Recreational Center in Greenville is put on solely by volunteers.

Keith McLawhorn started the one week long camp a few years ago to help families send their children to camp.

It was in such high demand, McLawhorn says they had to turn at least 85 kids away due to their lack of space.

Players from 8 to 16 years of age get to learn work ethic, along with basketball techniques.

McLawhorn says some kids come from all over the east and even out of state to participate.
