2021 SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION UPDATE: Due to the continued uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarships will not be offered for summer 2021.
We encourage eligible middle school students to apply for a scholarship to attend overnight basketball camp in summer 2022. Applications will be accepted beginning Jan. 1, 2022. Please continue to check this site for updates.
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.
Watch this testimonial video from Brunswick Electric to learn more about the positive impact of this scholarship program.
At both camps, 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.
The Touchstone Energy Sports Camp scholarship program provides a unique educational and athletic opportunity for our state’s youth and demonstrates the electric cooperatives’ commitment to community.
North Carolina’s Electric Cooperatives does not operate either camp. For questions about the basketball camps, please contact UNC or N.C. State athletics.
