Kids will get a chance to sharpen their basketball skills as well as learn about teamwork, diversity and the importance of embracing their community at a basketball camp this month in Mississauga.

Developed by Toronto Raptor superfan Nav Bhatia and his foundation, the camp is aimed at those aged 8-14 in the Malton area of the city.

It will run for four days — July 29 to Aug. 1 — with attendees chosen through an online lottery system. The camp is open to 416 participants.

According to Bhatia, the camp will offer and NBA style experience for the participants who will receive full uniforms, breakfast, lunch, snacks and a backpack full of gifts.

As well, many NBA and WNBA stars have been invited to help out at the camp.

“This is the first camp of what I expect to be an annual event. I hope the kids and their parents enjoy an experience like they have never witnessed before,” said Bhatia. “I have personally invited many of my NBA/WNBA friends and other celebrities to be a part of this year’s event in Malton. They will be inspired by their basketball heroes and live out their dream of being drafted into the NBA/WNBA.”

Kids residing in Malton have an opportunity to attend the camp for free through a lottery system by registering before July 20. The winning entries will be drawn at random by Bhatia on July 22.

Registration for the camp begins July 12, 2022 at www.superfancamp.com

The Superfan Nav Bhatia Foundation is saving campers $100 off registration by offering an early bird registration fee of $195 using the promo code SUPERFAN (for a limited time).

In February 2020, Raptors Superfan Bhatia donated $150,000 towards the renovation of the basketball courts at Paul Coffey Park in Malton where the camp will be held.
