Central EMC annually awards two Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarships to local students in Chatham, Harnett, Lee, Moore or Randolph counties. Usually a young man is selected to attend the Roy Williams Basketball Camp at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, and one young lady wins a scholarship to attend the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp at N.C. State University in Raleigh.
At camp, students work directly with the staff to learn basketball skills, leadership and teamwork. To be eligible to apply, students must be in the sixth, seventh or eighth grade during the upcoming school year, have permission from a parent or guardian to attend the overnight camp and must provide their own transportation if selected to attend.
The application period for the 2018 camps is underway. Applicants will be judged on academics, extra-curricular activities and an essay. The deadline to apply to both camps is March 31.
