ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- Fred VanVleet promised this year's Fan Fest and Summer Camp would be bigger and better than last year and so far he's delivered.
Saturday was the start of the two-day summer camp at the UW Health Sports Factory. the eight-hour day included drills and instructions from the Rockford native himself and scrimmage games with a lunch break sandwiched in-between.
Campers said they were happy to be apart of the the NBA star's camp, even though some joked they didn't need his help.
Last year, more than 200 campers participated in Fred VanVleet's first summer basketball camp.
Day two is Sunday, June 25. The camp runs from 8-12:00.
