About the Camp

The mission of Hamm Camp, Inc. is to use the community’s interest in basketball to help build higher expectations for achievement within our youth.

Our Experience

We had our first camp during the summer of 2009, where despite only being financially able to support 120, we averaged 135 kids a day for five days. We made it happen, and provided the campers with t-shirts, key chains and wrist bands. It's been our goal to continue to provide more year after year.

Lawrence Hamm Jr. Towson University BasketballHamm Camp brings our youth from off the streets and into a controlled learning environment where they are taught by true role models; those who have reached success the correct way. In this camp, we bring our youth off the streets, and connect them with positive people, in an effort to save lives and make our community safer.

This camp has been a dream of Mr. Lawrence Hamm; who grew up in the community, went to college, and played professional basketball for 6 seasons overseas. Hamm wants to provide an outlet for the youth in his community.

"With basketball, we grab their attention. Once we have that, we can feed them the knowledge that will help make them successful."
