43rd Annual
Summer 2020:
**Cancelled for summer of 2020 Due to Covid-19**


I regret to inform you that Hays Hoop Camp has been cancelled for the summer of 2020. MCPS has determined that they will not be using their indoor or outdoor facilities for youth camps due to the Covid-19 virus. 
This is really disappointing for me as I love running camps for the youth in our area and this will be the first summer since 1978 that our family has not run this basketball camp. I looked at multiple options, but feel that it is in the best interest and safety of all of the kids and families to not run a camp this year. Let's stay safe and plan on having camp together next summer!!
