We all know The Dragon is anything but off court. With his kind hearted spirit, family man attitude and good sense of humour, he's everything a fan could ask for in his/her favourite athlete. This year he is taking it a step further in his native country of Slovenia by organising a basketball camp for kids, saying his main motivation for it comes from "wanting to inspire love for sports and healthy living in today's youth".
Though formally called Basketball Camp Goran Dragić, basketball won't be the only activity on the agenda. From climbing and American football, to learning English and exploring nature, the weeklong program will help kids learn about teamwork and perseverance while also helping build confidence. Other activities include: games, parties, visits from other Slovenian athletes, hike to the beautiful Lovrenška Lakes, theme days and (maybe the most noteworthy) visit of athletes in wheelchairs.
The Camp will take place from June 29th to July 5th on Rogla, where Goran and his team will ensure a great, one of a kind experience each child will remember for a long time. Just one of the things we love about Gogi.
The camp has its own Facebook page you can follow for updates: https://www.facebook.com/KosKampGoranaDragica?ref=stream
