Summer Youth Basketball and Cheerleading Camp

Check back for information about camp in 2014!

Summer brings Nashville OIC’s week-long Youth Basketball and Cheerleading Camp at the Watkins Park Community Center. Participants make friends, practice their sports and cheerleading skills, and learn about leadership and healthy eating from guest speakers. This camp is also an opportunity for OIC to recruit students as many parents enroll in OIC’s HiSet and computer classes following their children’s attendance at the camp.
