SNOWMASS VILLAGE – The Viceroy Snowmass, the Snowmass Recreation Center and the Kenyon Martin Foundation will hold the Hoops for Kids All-Star Celebrity Basketball Camp July 6-8 in Snowmass Village.

The event, which will raise funds for the recreation center and Martin’s foundation, will feature appearances by Martin, his Denver Nuggets teammates Chauncey Billups and Ty Lawson, Carlos Boozer of the Utah Jazz, Jameer Nelson of the Orlando Magic, and retired NBA players Cuttino Mobley and Tim Hardaway.

Hoops for Kids is open to boys and girls ages 8-16 of all playing abilities. The two-and-a-half day camp, held at the Viceroy and the Recreation Center, includes two full days of basketball, lunches, a half-day rafting trip, and a visit to the Snowmass Rodeo.

The Kenyon Martin Foundation was established by Martin to provide parenting and career guidance to teenagers who become parents, and to assist families that don’t have father figures.

In addition to the camp, on July 6 there will be a gala fundraising dinner, including a silent auction with such items as a golf outing with an NBA All-Star, autographed memorabilia and more.

To register for Hoops for Kids, purchase tickets for the gala, or for further information, call 923-8011.
