“This will be our second year in Boise and we could not be happier to have found a partner in Capital High,” explains Carson Sofro, HSBCAMPS Founder. “We had some great support from the local community last year, and were able to put the kids face-to-face with some great pro players including 2010 NBA D-League MVP and Houston Rocket Reserve, Mike Harris.” HSBCAMPS prides itself as a youth basketball program that “gives back”, donating a portion of every programs proceeds to schools and non-profits within each of the communities they serve.

“Idaho is where this program began in 2007, and it is where I grew up,” shared Sofro. “Giving these kids the opportunity to train one-on-one with actual pro’s from all over the country and around the world is what this program is all about and we look forward to doing this year after year.” In addition to Boise, the nationally expanding youth basketball camp will also be serving up high scoring experiences in Forney, Texas; Houston, Texas; Rockwall, Texas; Park City, Utah; Hailey, Idaho; Twin Falls, Idaho; Bend, Ore.; Medford, Ore.; and Bellevue, Wash.
