Summer 2016–Kids’ Dreams again proudly sponsored the Ball Stars Youth Camp in Palm Beach County. The free summer program is provided to children and teens in the local community; 90% of the youth participating in the summer camp are from single parent/low-income households. Ball Stars Youth Camp educates in both basketball and important life skills. Depicted below: NBA All-Stars, Otis Birdsong and Micheal Ray Richardson with Palm Beach County Commissioner Melissa McKinley and Kids’ Dreams President Patricia Lebow join campers and Palm Beach Gardens law enforcement. Mentoring by law enforcement is an important component of the programs sponsored by Kids’ Dreams.
In the summer of 2014, Kids’ Dreams proudly announced its support of the Ball Stars Youth Camp for its initial year in Palm Beach County. The program is designed to provide underserved Palm Beach County youth with the opportunity to attend basketball camp with the NBA All-Star’s Otis Birdsong and Greg Minor. Mr. Birdsong and Mr. Minor oversee a comparable program in New Jersey and were inspired to bring Ball Stars to South Florida. This camp experience fulfills Kids’ Dreams’ mission of assisting financially disadvantaged children in Palm Beach County. Visit their website here.
