     "The camp was very informative for the children, very fun, both my sons showed improvement just in the two days and are more enthused about playing. Thankyou".

The Inner City Athletic Program (ICAP), conducts one, or two-day free athletic instructional camps for youth ages 7 to 14, that provide basic fundamentals of sports, teamwork, respect for each other, personal and group responsibility. Our camps are conducted at various locations. Inspirational speakers stress the importance of nutrition, exercise, and education. We introduce cost-free exercise routines that reduce obesity, provide public and nonprofit resources for low-income families struggling to improve their diet and physical well-being. We provide information on nutrition, good eating choices, and making good decisions. A free 

healthy lunch is provided for all participants and their family. ICAP collaborates with mentoring and youth organizations to empower and engage youth for healthy lifestyles. Our program requires release of liability waivers and emergency medical forms signed by parents, or guardians of all participants. High school students who volunteer receive community service credits to fulfill their school requirements. T-shirts and prizes are giveaways at the end of each day. Pre and post test are administered.
