Game Day Sports Camp
A professional basketball player for the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, Ron Howard founded Game Day Sports Camp with his wife, Reesha, as a way to both build kids’ characters and to prevent them from turning into stone due to sedentary lifestyles. During action-packed days, kids—led by thoroughly vetted, energetic counselors—shoot layups in basketball, practice intricate soccer footwork, and seize their opponents’ flags during games of football. Alternative activities supplement sports with team-building exercises and creative activities such as chalking sidewalks, crafting jewelry by hand, and building puppets. Special weekly events, such as Halloween in July, H20 Day, and Carnival Day, keep each week exciting. Above all, Ron and Reesha’s camp aims to honor life’s intangible victories, imparting in each participant the self-esteem and integrity necessary to handle all life’s challenges, whether dealing with relationships or wrestling an alligator during a gentlemanly duel.
