Durant is planning to go back and forth between the two camps, and will likely have Thunder teammates and coaches assisting.

The camp times will be staggered to better allow Durant to spend time at each camp, which will have a combined 1,200 children coming from 26 states and four countries.

Participants will learn fundamental basketball skills and game play, will get to meet and interact with Durant and receive an autograph and team photo with him.

“I think this demonstrates his commitment to his adopted hometown of Oklahoma City,” ProCamps Worldwide representative Julie Roberts said. “It also shows his commitment to wanting to have an impact on kids within that adopted hometown by being able to have an additional 600 attend.”
