Athletics & Academics Camps
- Central Florida

KLF's signature Athletics & Academics Camps program uses basketball as a hook to teach at-risk youths lessons critical to their successful development in adults. Led by Adonal Foyle and a host of passionate volunteers we have so far reached over 5000 at-risk youths throughout the Caribbean.

In 2011, we decided it was time to bring our A&A Camps to America and are setting our sights on Central Florida. By the end of 2012 we hope to have reached over 1000 kids throughout Central Florida! Help us >

Orlando A&A Camp 1:
Pine Hils

KLF held our first Athletics & Academics Camp at the Walt Disney World Clubhouse of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida on October 27th. 85+ teens at the facility experienced an exciting afternoon led by Adonal Foyle and a host of committed volunteers including Adonal's former Warriors teammate, Tim Young! Teens learned basketball, leadership skills and the importance of reading.
