BallStars Youth Camp
Kids’ Dreams proudly announces its support, along with other Palm Beach County participants, of Ball Stars Youth Camp in its initial year in Palm Beach County. The program is designed to provide under-served Palm Beach County youth with the opportunity to attend basketball camp with Otis Birdsong and Greg Minor, former NBA players. Mr. Birdsong and Mr. Minor oversee a comparable program in New Jersey and sought to start one in Palm Beach County. This camp experience fulfills Kids’ Dreams’ mission of assisting financially disadvantaged children in Palm Beach County.
