Guest Speaker Program

Guest speakers such as John Starks (former Knicks star), Allan Houston (former Knicks star), Nate Archibald (former NBA scoring/assist leader), David Hopla (NBA shooting coach), Ronnie Nunn (former NBA referee) and more serve as role models, delivering inspirational messages to MVP Campers. We also have special entertainers like Harlem Globetrotters come in to do separate shows for the younger age groups including dunk contests and skill challenges for prizes with the campers.

Meet a few of MVP’s Speakers

Nate Archibald

Nate "Tiny" Archibald

Nate Archibald has been named one of the top 50 NBA players of all time. He is the only player to ever lead the league in assists and scoring during the same season.

Nate spoke at camp during MVP's inaugural season, and then came back for its 20th anniversary season. He's been a fixture ever since, both at summer camp and at MVP fundraisers.

By his own admission, Nate was a troubled youth who never completed college before his NBA career, but in retirement from basketball he has completed undergraduate and graduate degrees. MVP is proud to have him on its team.
