Johnson and Wales Summer Camp - Camp Fusion
The mission of THE TERRYBROOK PROJECT is to provide the children in the communities we serve opportunities for success by opening doors to various resources; breaking down social, economic and racial barriers; assisting in educational, housing, nutritional and medical needs, ensuring those needs are met and by building a strong foundation between the children, the families and the greater community to establish a positive bond necessary for a happy, healthy, peaceful and promising future.
Charlotte as well as this country are in a state of division, separation and disconnect in a lot of areas of our society. It’s been an issue since this country’s inception. Our focus with the camp is to address division and disconnect between Charlotte’s youth and our police department.
The athletes will spend a majority of their day working on basketball skills and participating in competitions playing a sport they love. The rest of the evening the youth and officers will be challenged as we address current issues facing our youth and our society through various workshops and guest speakers.
Student athletes are natural leaders in the schools and in their communities. The positive bonds formed during this camp aims to open doors for more positive work in the schools and the communities.
It is our hope that each student athlete improves on the court but more importantly walks away enlightened, poised to be leaders and with some new friends!
