On June 26th and 27th 2015, E’Twaun Moore’s Basketball Camp took place for the 4th year in a row at East Chicago Central High School. The camp operates one weekend annually in East Chicago and is open to students entering grades 4 through 9.  The camp is organized by E’Twaun D. Moore (EDM) Foundation, Inc. founded by Chicago Bull and East Chicago native, E’Twaun Moore.


“It feels great to be back in East Chicago, especially anytime I’ve got something positive going on,” said Moore.


The camp ran from 10:30am to 3:00pm on both days. In the morning, the athletes participated in warm-ups, agility training, ball handling drills and defensive exercises. After a 12:00pm break for lunch, the campers returned to the court to work on group drills, team practices, and five-on-five gameplay. Each day ended with a discussion led by Moore on the skills practiced at camp as well as life lessons that can be correlated with the game of basketball.


The goal of E’Twaun D. Moore Foundation is to use the camp to drive home the values of education, self, community and respect for authority to young people in East Chicago and the surrounding areas. FEC acknowledges and applauds EDM Foundation’s efforts to re-build East Chicago through investment in the youth.


“Don’t let where you are from deter you and keep you from living your dreams,” he advised all East Chicago residents. “Always push forward and stay positive and you can do whatever you want to.”
