360 Camp Philosophy & Coaches
We believe with the integral leaders and enriching environments, young people possess the potential to become exemplary human beings who can thrive personally and contribute to the lives of their families, teams, schools, communities and the planet. Given this belief, we use the game of basketball as a safe, fun and challenging platform to help young people develop their values, knowledge and skills toward the betterment of self, others and the world.
We take an integrative and research based approach to learning and basketball development in which our professional and experienced coaches draw upon the following 5 pillars of learning:
Learning to know
Learning to do
Learning to be
Learning to live, work & play with others
Learning to impact team, family, society & environment
