ESF Camps and Philadelphia 76ers Announce Details For 76ers Basketball Camps, On Heels Of New Partnership
Bryn Mawr, PA—February 7, 2019— The Philadelphia 76ers and ESF Camps & Experiences, a national leader in the delivery of award-winning camps, announced today details for this summer’s 76ers Basketball Camps. On the heels of a new partnership, ESF will enhance and operate the 76ers Basketball Camps, formerly known as Sixers Camps, for boys and girls ages 6-17, and later in 2019, launch the first ever 76ers Fantasy Camp for adults.
76ers Basketball Camps include Day Camps and Residential Camps at 18 locations throughout the tri-state area. During camp, young athletes will work with a highly-experienced coaching staff on their ball-handling, passing, offense, shooting and rebounding skills to advance their game. While focusing on key basketball skills and fundamentals, campers will learn the game from 76ers players, coaches and other NBA stars.
Registration is open now for 76ers Basketball Camps, presented by Rothman Orthopaedics. To register or for more information, go to www.76ersCamps.com.
“We are excited to partner with the 76ers, one of the best teams and brands in the NBA. The new 76ers Basketball Camps will help campers improve their skills and potential on the court while using their love of basketball to positively impact their life off the court. This partnership promises great things ahead, and we are excited to build the finest basketball camps in the NBA for people of all ages,” said Michael J. Rouse, ESF Camps & Experiences, President & CEO.
Now in its 35th year, more than 100,000 campers from more than 40 countries and 45 states have attended 76ers Basketball Camps, including former NBA players Matt Carroll, Richard “Rip” Hamilton and Malik Rose.
“The demand for and interest in our team and 76ers camps is at an unprecedented high,” Philadelphia 76ers President of Business Operations Chris Heck said. “We’re pleased to partner with ESF Camps to help meet that demand by elevating the reach and impact of 76ers Basketball Camps. Basketball has the potential to positively impact our youth in many ways, and it is our mission and goal to help provide kids with access to the game in the best ways possible. With our partners at ESF Camps, we intend to deliver world-class camps for youth across the Delaware Valley in a safe, fun environment.”
Later in 2019, the 76ers and ESF will launch a one-of-a-kind NBA experience for adults with a 76ers Fantasy Camp. This camp will give the ultimate adult 76ers fan a chance to put on an authentic 76ers uniform and play games coached and managed by 76ers legends.
