Higher Level Camps is looking forward to celebrating its 25th year in 2019. Every successful organization has a history, mission, and vision.  In 2017-2018, Higher Level Camps (HLC) is proud to be working with an author, Karla Jensen, to unravel the story behind its proud heritage.   Jensen and Cheryl Mohr, founder of HLC, met at Wayland Academy, where HLC has hosted summer basketball camps for several years.  When Karla learned about the success of HLC and its staying power as the longest running independent AAU basketball organization in the state she was interested in sharing this story with others.  Cheryl has agreed to work with Karla in sharing an in-depth profile of the leadership and development of HLC. The book will be launched in the fall of 2018 to showcase the history, depth of family involvement and inspirational leadership HLC is known for.  If you have a testimonial or wish to make a contribution of a family story involving HLC, contact Cheryl Mohr. Watch for more information on book tour dates and events. 

 

Release Date: September, 2018 at Wayland Academy
