“This is the first time in recent history that Livingstone College has held various athletic camps during the summer,” said Athletic Director Lamonte Massie-Sampson. “We are excited about the camps and are eager to host these young people on our campus. In this age where our youth are spending more time in front of a screen, we are happy to offer an alternative that will get them moving, learning a new sport or honing their athletic abilities.”
