It wasn't long ago that Kevin Durant attended camps just like the one he is hosting starting today.

The 21-year-old who led the Oklahoma City Thunder to its first playoffs and became the youngest scoring champion in NBA history will show his appreciation by hosting The Kevin Durant Basketball Camp for children 7-18.

Mike Fisk, a camp executive, said Durant will be on-site teaching for the entire three-day camp, giving kids lessons on his silky sweet jumper and sky high rebounding, among other things.

"The kids go from different stations where they work on different skills, and we hire area prep coaches from the Oklahoma City area and they serve as the coach for each team," Fisk said. "We run them through a series of drills and stations, and they have game play everyday."

The camp is broken up into two sections: The 7- to 11-year-olds go from 9 a.m. to noon at Heritage Hall High School, 1800 N.W. 122nd, and then the 12- to 18-year-olds attend 1-4 p.m.

All campers will receive a camp T-shirt and an autographed team photo with the Durantula himself.

Fisk said he knows how much Durant likes teaching kids, and this is just another opportunity for him to show his appreciation to OKC.

"He enjoys coming out and giving back to the community and trying to give the kids as much of an experience as he can," Fisk said.

Registration is $199. To be put on a waiting list or for more information, e-mail events@procamps.com."Adam Kemp| photo/Shannon Cornman
