Oak Hill’s first post-COVID-19 sports camp a success



On June 8-10 we had our first post-COVID-19 camp at Oak Hill High School: the “Oaks Basketball Camp.” For 3 days, over 50 students from the Oak Hill Community came to the camp with energy and enthusiasm and displayed what sports is all about. When planning this camp, we were unsure what a post-COVID-19 camp would look like, but I can say without hesitation that it was an overwhelming success. I want to say a HUGE thank you to the community of Oak Hill! Parents, grandparents, and guardians all brought their enthusiastic kids to camp and let us spend two hours each day helping them improve their basketball skills.
