ABA Camp is Cancelled This Summer

July 24, 2017

Please join our extended BGCL family in sending healing thoughts and prayers for Bert Hammel’s recovery from heart surgery.

While mentoring hundreds of club kids at the helm of ABA (Academic Basketball Awareness) Camp over the past 35+ years, Bert has been an embodiment of our mission of changing kids’ lives and a shining example of selflessness to us all.

We are regrettably in the process of sending letters to players informing them that ABA Camp is cancelled this summer, but we remain #BertStrong!
