Former Darton head coach Lea Henry and her team put on the camp at Sara Cobb Elementary in Americus. 

Campers learned skills from former college coaches and players. 

For campers, it was about more than just learning new basketball skills. 

"It's just an opportunity to get the kids having fun, learning more about the game of basketball, but mainly what we're trying to do is really emphasize value of education, overcoming obstacles, believing in themselves," said former Darton coach Lea Henry.

Those who missed the camp on Tuesday can still participate on Wednesday and Thursday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
