Hundreds of kids in Camden enjoyed flag football, a waterfowl weekend and more during Summer 2014, thanks to The ALPHA Center, the Jackson Teen Center (JTC) and those offering their moral and financial support. This year, ALPHA Center Executive Director Paul Napper and JTC Director Bryan Mayes are looking for a repeat of last summer’s success, but with a few differences. First and foremost is a switch from football to basketball, as Napper explained during a kickoff luncheon April 21 at The ALPHA Center.
