CAMP GRACE 2017 – 13th Summer at LTA
Camp Grace is back for the 13th summer at LTA! Our focus at Camp Grace is to educate our kids on leadership and basketball! We center our camp around friendship, teamwork, commitment, excellence and leadership. Activities include the fundamentals of basketball, shooting, in-house games and scrimmages.
This year we are thrilled to add two new instructors to Camp Grace, Damien Jenifer of First Choice Basketball Training and Conditioning and Bear (Cornelius McMurray) of Gooseneck Basketball.
Damien is the owner and operator of First choice Basketball Training and Conditioning, has provided mental preparation and programs designed to address the goals and needs for individual players. In his 7 years as an Assistant Coach for the nationally renowned Montrose Christian Mustangs boys basketball program, Damien has developed a solid foundation of teamwork in practice, workouts, and games. He is focused on individual players, and creating a customized program to maximize development and career enhancement. Damien has helped to train over 35 college basketball players and numerous NBA and European Professional Basketball players.
Bear (Cornelius McMurray) heavily contributed to the 27-0 season for Southwestern high school in 1997 winning west Baltimore’s first ever city and regional championship. He currently holds the record for most three pointers in Baltimore city at ten. Bear attended Bacone Junior College in Oklahoma during the 1998-99 season where he assisted his team to a record of 32-2 and won their first ever conference and regional championship. He finished out his collegiate career with a dominate presence at Bowie State University. He helped lead Bowie State in capturing the CIAA championship in the 2003-2004 season. Bear was inducted into the AAU Hall of Fame in 2003 and was recently inducted into Bowie State’s Hall of Fame in 2016. With these accolades he is a proven champ and ready to pass the torch to the next generation!
On behalf of LTA, we would like to thank Damien and Bear for their commitment to our youth and our community! They both selflessly volunteer their time for our children. We are very proud to have both Damien and Bear at Camp Grace!
