Our Mission Is Simple

Since 1997 we have been bringing a week of smiles and hope to over 10,000 amazing boys and girls who live in underprivileged neighborhoods in the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. We do this through our free basketball camps for boys and girls of all ages, and with our Life Skills Program in which we emphasize citizenship, education and self-discipline.

Take a look around, learn more about Basketball Smiles and see how you can get involved. Please take a few minutes to watch this video we made a couple of years ago and you’ll see the joy you help us bring through Basketball Smiles.

We have some great things planned for our 21st Anniversary Basketball Smiles Camp!

Some innovative changes are being made and we are excited about the wonderful boys and girls that we have committed ourselves to serve. As always, no child ever pays and no child is ever turned away at Basketball Smiles Camp. Every camper receives their own shirt, camp basketball and school backpack and every child is fed a nutritious meal daily.

We need your help to continue to give these boys and girls the best camp experience and the best start in life possible. Please help by visiting the Get Involved page and by checking out our 2020 initiative Shoes for Every Child. Make a donation. Our kids need your help!

Together we will continue to transform lives.
