Take It To The Hoop This Summer - Carolina Country
February 2024

South River EMC will send two current fifth or sixth graders to the Touchstone Energy Basketball camps offered at NC State and UNC-Chapel Hill.

This opportunity gives boys and girls a unique experience to attend basketball camp on one of two of the state’s largest college campuses.

Students statewide are encouraged to apply for one of 50 all-expenses-paid scholarships to attend the Carolina Basketball Camp at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (June 22-26) and the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Academy at North Carolina State University in Raleigh (date TBA).

At the overnight camps, campers work closely with coaches and players to develop fundamental skills, helping them perform and excel both on and off the court.

The Cooperative funds one scholarship to each camp and in 2023, we were able to send Taylor Thornton and Lathan Middleton.

Campers must:

  • Be a rising sixth or seventh grader. This means currently in fifth or sixth grade.
  • Attend a school in the Cooperative service area.
  • Have a parent or guardian's permission to attend. An information sheet must be signed.
  • Provide their own transportation to and from camp.
Winners will attend the camps courtesy of South River EMC. Applications will be scored on academics, extracurricular activities and an essay that must accompany the application. The application period closes March 31.
