Caribbean Camps

Since 2003, KLF Founder, Adonal Foyle has returned home to St. Vincent & the Grenadines to hold his free Athletics & Academics Island Camps (A & A Camps). Led by Adonal and a staff of NBA professional athletes, coaches and US-based volunteers, the camps go beyond teaching basketball skills, to also address the areas of health (HIV/AIDS and nutrition), social skills, and education (with a focus on literacy).

The A & A Camps combine the fundamentals of basketball with educational & health messages to create a unique and fun-filled experience for youths aged 7 to 17.

To date, KLF has held nineteen camps in St. Vincent & the Grenadines plus one All-Star Camp over five summers, reaching over 3000 children. In 2010, we took our Camps to Trinidad & Tobago where we taught over 300 children via 4 camps and in 2011 we held a Camp for over 100 children in Dominica.
