Foyle Hosts Athletics & Academics Camp for Parramore Kids
Orlando Magic Director of Player Development Adonal Foyle hosted his Kerosene Lamp Foundation’s (KLF) Athletics & Academics Camps (A&A Camps) free for approximately 100 at-risk youth, ages 11-16, from the Parramore neighborhood on Wednesday. Foyle received camp assistance from Magic center Glen “Big Baby” Davis.
The camp is part of his foundation’s campaign to reach at least 1,000 at-risk youths in Orlando in 2012-13. The A&A Camps is one of KLF’s signature programs and uses basketball as an entrée to teaching youths leadership, nutrition, financial literacy and other topics relevant to positive adolescent development while also promoting literacy.
Foyle initiated the A&A Camps in his native St. Vincent & the Grenadines in 2003 and since then has reached over 5,500 youths in USA and the Caribbean.
This is Foyle’s second A&A Camp in Central Florida. KLF anticipates a series of A&A Camps to take place throughout Central Florida in 2012.
