Ray Davis Pass the Torch Basketball Camp, July 26 - 28

Through this annual effort, Austin children ages 6-12 are learning basketball skills and the value of good citizenry. The annual basketball camp, now called the Ray Davis Pass the Torch Camp, is being held this year at the Virginia R. Brown Recreation Center, 7500 Blessing Ave., from Tuesday, July 26 through Thursday, July 28.  Boys and girls will have fun learning teamwork and basketball skills. It is co-sponsored by the Austin African-American Firefighters Association, AFD 's Community Outreach section, and the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department's (PARD) Roving Leaders program. During the week, kids learn fundamentals of the game, fire safety, and hear guest speakers.
