Brookline Recreation Center
2009 Summer Basketball Camp

Upwards Movement Basketball Summer Camp.

The Brookline Recreation Center hosted a basketball clinic June 15-18, 2009. The camp was sponsored by the Shandon Baptist Church of Columbia, South Carolina, in cooperation with the Baptist Association of Southwestern Pennsylvania and the Pittsburgh Baptist Church, located on Pioneer Avenue in Brookline. This is the second year that these kind-hearted folks have traveled north and treated our Brookline kids to a wonderfully run basketball camp.

All of the kids in attendance received a free basketball and a shirt. The camp staff was professional and offered some nice tips to our little hoopers. With our summer basketball program beginning on June 15, the timing of the camp was perfect. The kids had a great time!

In addition to the basketball camp, a cookout was held in Dormont Park and everyone was invited. There was plenty of good food, lawn games and fun rides, along with some really nice prizes for the kids.

Thanks to Pastor Kim of the Pittsburgh Baptist Church, Lamar Duke of the Baptist Association of Southwestern Pennsylvania, Pastor Jerry Long of the Shandon Baptist Church and all of the wonderful volunteers who came to Brookline to give freely and unconditionally of their time and resources to help our kids.
