The Arc Mid-South's FSS and CDJP clients had an opportunity to participate in Kamp Tiger with the University of Memphis' Tiger Basketball players over the weekend. Everyone had a ball!
Kamp Tiger is a basketball camp for University of Memphis fans with disabilities. Over 100 fans had an opportunity to hang out and shoot hoops with the University of Memphis basketball team. The event included members and participants from Special Olympics, SRVS, The Arc Mid-South, Concord Academy, and Clovernook Center for The Blind and Visually Impaired.
Persons supported by The Arc Mid-South had an opportunity to participate in a third year of fun by attending the University of Memphis’ Kamp Tiger, held October 25th. The University of Memphis men’s basketball team began hosting “Kamp Tiger” four years ago in Josh Pastner’s first year as head coach of the college team.
Kamp Tiger was designed as an opportunity for individuals with disabilities to interact with their peers, and experience basketball techniques with the U of M men’s basketball team players.
Participating students were given monogrammed tee shirts, and delicious snacks. The students had an opportunity to interact with players, share their stories, and take photographs with the U of M players, and Coach Pastner.
