2020 Camp Dates:
- Roy Williams Carolina Basketball Camp: June 20-24, 2020
- Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp: June 21-24, 2020
Scholarship applications will be accepted Jan. 1, March 31. Come back to this page Jan. 1, 2020, to access the application.
To be eligible to apply, students must be sixth, seventh or eighth graders during the 2020-2021 school year at a qualifying school in North Carolina. Contact your local electric cooperative to determine if your child’s school is eligible. Applicants will be judged on their academics, extracurricular activities and an essay that must accompany the scholarship application.
Campers will work closely with the college 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 and must provide their own transportation to and from camp.
The Touchstone Energy Sports Camp scholarship program provides a unique educational and athletic opportunity for our state’s youth and demonstrates Touchstone Energy’s core values of accountability, integrity, innovation and particularly, commitment to community.
