CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - A Co-op between Cheyenne’s Restoration Fellowship International Church and Colorado Spings-based The Destiny Project has led to a four-day basketball camp.

“Sports is a lot like life. You get knocked down, in sports, you gotta get back up, said The Destiny Project Co-Founder Rex Tonkins. “You lose some games, you gotta keep coming back and trying harder, get better each time. And that’s how it is in life and faith.”

The event teaches its campers about basketball, but also tries to impart life lessons, all with the backdrop of faith in God.

“We want them to leave here not only knowing the principles of basketball and some principles for life, but we want them to put a faith in someone that’s greater than themself and we believe that faith is in Jesus Christ,” said Restoration Fellowship Int’l Lead Pastor Tom J Perea.

The youth basketball camp concludes with a 3-on-3 tournament on Friday. The entire community is invited to watch and enjoy the food provided.

Trophies will also be handed out to some campers, including “The Dante Trophy” for the most valuable player. The trophy is named in honor of Dante Robinson, a former camper, who passed away.
