Eastern Oregon University will hold a boys and girls basketball camp June 16-19.

A camp for youngsters from kindergarten to fifth grade will run from 9 to 11:30 a.m. A camp for boys and girls in grades six through eight will be held from 1 to 3:30 p.m.

Campers will be taught all the same individual and team skills taught to EOU players. Good fundamentals will be emphasized in a fun and positive environment.

Emphasis on skills will vary according to age group.

This will be EOU coach Art Furman's 10th year directing basketball camps. Furman, his staff, and Eastern players will all participate in the camp.

More than 6,000 area youth have participated in these activities in the past.

Cost for an individual camper is $60. Families with two or more participants may take a $10 per camper discount. A limited number of scholarships are available.

Those planning to pay at the door or those with questions should call Furman at 962-3569.
