Basketball camps for kids at Cuyamaca, Grossmont colleges

For parents looking for a way their kids could burn off energy in a fun, safe way, coaches at Cuyamaca and Grossmont colleges are putting on coed basketball camps in July and August.

Rob Wojtkowski, head basketball coach at Cuyamaca College, is putting on summer basketball camps for youngsters to receive expert instruction in basketball, as well as individual character development. The camps are sponsored by the men’s basketball office at Cuyamaca College and are designed to instill self-confidence through achievement. The young athletes will be able to improve their talent and abilities in the areas of ball handling, dribbling, passing and receiving, rebounding and shooting through drills, three-on-three competition and team games.

“I enjoy working with kids, having my players teach kids, and bringing in the outside community to our campus,” said Wojtkowski, who has been directing summer camps for 24 years, the past 15 at Cuyamaca College.

Camps 1-3 will be held 9 a.m.-noon; Camp 4 is from 1-4 p.m. The $79 per-camp fee includes the cost of a T-shirt and an evaluation.

  • Camp 1: July 7-10, 9 a.m.-12 p.m. (grades 4-6)
  • Camp 2: July 14-17, 9 a.m.-12 p.m. (grades 7-9)
  • Camp 3: July 21-24, 9 a.m.-12 p.m. (grades 4-6)
  • Camp 4: July 21-24, 1 p.m.-4 p.m. (grades 7-9)
