The 18th annual Sharone Wright Basketball week (SWBBWK) is proud to be back for another year of fun and skills in the gym. For years we have been the best mixture of basketball and life skills in the middle Georgia area. This year promises to be the same . Our counselors ,staff and head trainer are all veterans of this camp and they share the same passion for the kids in Macon.
Our camp was founded by my mother Carolyn Wright and myself. My mom wanted to give back to the community in a variety of ways and she saw the need to combine athletics and academic/life skills in Macon and surrounding counties. Through great leadership, discipline and had work I was able to make all of my dreams come hero ugh in the game of basketball. But my life skill dreams suffered because I as lightly prepared for certain mishaps. That's why I love this camp. We not only teach the game but we also teach LIFE.
Over the years we've had some spectacular guests from the world of NBA, NFL, MLB, colleges etc. we also have had great lessons taught by prominent scholars, businessmen , professionals and politicians. Every day is a great day at SWBBWK. Lunch is served daily and we also have a cafe on hand.
A big misconception is that we are a drop off camp. That is so far from the truth. In fact we spend loads of time on just fundamentals of our great game. Never has there ben a camp that gives so much . Our community service Day tops everything because it teaches the kids that there is more to life than thinking of yourself. We employe them to do charity work and volunteer in their community to make it better.
This year we are very very proud to partner with the Macon Parks and recreation dept. For years we have wanted to partner up with the parks and Rec Dept . It is truly a blessing to see the day it happens.
Jerry Stackhouse, Shawn Bradley , Tony Dawson, Chauncey Billups, Marcus Camby , Kareem jackson, Damon Stoudamire and Derrick Alston are just a few stars that have graced the center court at our camps.
Each day of the camp there is a dedicated effort to teach each child the game in a unique way. Our policy is no child left behind on a specific skill. I guarantee our camp will move your child as it has moved 2200 other kids in our glorious past.

Thanks to all of our great staff. In our 15 year span , this has been the best response that we have ever had!
This summer promises to have even more fun, skillset training and education to match. With last summer being a great one, We decided to add even more education with our enrichment program. We partnered with a well known group that focuses on Literary arts for kids. We are very big fans of the literary world and reading in general. We believe that reading and comprehending is essential to the growth of kids today.
We also added a special new concept that will blow your socks off. I love the fact that we start each morning off with working the kids minds to strengthen them and then we go on to basketball.
In basketball we have the cream of the crop in skill-set training . Imagine 5 full days of really getting what your kids need for total court improvement. Our staff headed by Central Georgia Technical college head coach Reco Dawson is top of the line.
