Up With Kids Sports again offers affordable summer fun.

MILTON, Ga., July 20, 2011 - The second and last of the City of Milton/Up With Kids Sports (UWKS) basketball skills camps will be held Aug. 1 through 5 at Hopewell Middle School.

This camp, for children ages 6 through 17, will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and cost $135 for Milton residents. Half days are available for $100. Cost for non-residents is $202.50 for full days and $150 for half.

International basketball star Samuel Hines, who founded UWKS and coaches the camps, said the experience of bringing basketball to Milton's children has been tremendous.

"Watching them learn the game and hearing their parents' reaction has been great," said Hines. "To see the support from the community for this program means so much to me. I can't wait for the winter league to watch these kids grow even more."
