This summer MVP Basketball Camp will celebrate its 25th year serving the youth in and around Westchester County! It’s hard to believe that over 25,000 children have attended our camp over the years; 6000 campers have been given full scholarships. This was Stan Greene’s mission when he founded the camp in 1994. As a non-profit camp, MVP’s goal is to bring together the youth from all parts of our diverse community; this includes those children whose families could not afford a camp tuition. (read more about our scholarship program in a previous post).
MVP Basketball Camp has had many locations in our 25 years but the Highlands School in White Plains is our home. In 1995, we began our mission and story with two weeks of camp at Highlands and two weeks at Greenwich (Ct) High School. Most of our campers were from Westchester and we formed a great relationship with the White Plains School District, so we settled into the Highlands School for the next decade. When we looked to expand (north), the Fox Lane Campus in Bedford provided an excellent environment for Northern Westchester youth. We even spent two summers at North Salem Middle / High School. Over the last four years, we added the Resurrection School in Rye to our rotation. When the Highlands school became unavailable, we found courts in White Plains at Ebersol Rink (glad the ice melted!), the Rochambeau School and finally the Eastview School.
We are very proud to be Westchester County’s premiere basketball camp. We take great pride in bringing Westchester children together each summer and providing opportunities for all children to play and learn in a safe, enjoyable atmosphere.
We look forward to celebrating with you this year!
