MARION, SC – The Rockem Experience – Basketball Camp is back for it’s 5th annual event. The
event will be a 4-day camp where the campers will not only come together through basketball, but
will also learn some valuable life skills along the way.
The camp is running from July 12th – July 15th at the at the Shannon Wilkerson Gym (29571) and is
FREE to every child who attends. The popular camp is hosed by DJ Rowell, also professionally
known as David L. Rowell who is a rising film star and 2011 Marion High School graduate. The age range of our campers is anywhere between 5-18 and all experience levels are welcome.
Their ultimate goal with this event is to be able to bring as many at-risk youth as possible to our
camp. We want to encourage them to dream big, discover and identify their passions and who they
are early in life through our common interest of basketball!
Over the course of the camp, the kids learn from our volunteers, coaches, celebrities and
community leaders the fundamentals of basketball, as well as all of the lessons the sport can teach
you about life itself! Confidence, teamwork, respect, decision making, and an overall sense of
defined purpose! The final day of our camp we have a mini awards ceremony. These awards aren’t
just about the sport, but more of what we saw in the kids! Awards such as “most improved”,
“strongest leader”, “best team player”, and many more! By awarding each individual child their
tailor made awards, it just adds to the level of attention to detail that we dedicate to every camper.
We want them to leave with a sense of accomplishment that they’ve learned from us, and that they
are ready to face the world head on with confidence!
