Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarships

UPDATE: THE 2020 CAMPS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19.

Lace up those sneakers, basketball fans! Each year, North Carolina’s local electric cooperatives award full scholarships to local middle school students to attend summer collegiate basketball camps. Participating cooperatives will each select one middle school boy for a full scholarship to attend the Roy Williams Carolina Basketball Camp in Chapel Hill, and one middle school girl for a scholarship to attend at the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp in Raleigh. More than 50 scholarships will be awarded statewide.

Campers will work closely with college basketball coaches and camp staff to develop fundamental skills that help the young athletes perform and excel both on and off the court. Campers will stay in dorms overnight during the camp sessions. For more information about both camps, please visit the UNC camp website or the N.C. State camp website.
