The basketball camp is over.  The grant finally was 3 all-star games last night.  Overall the camp was a big success.  One of the things I was most impressed with was a group of students and their coach from the school for the deaf.  Not only are they deaf but the Gambian sign language is not the same as American Sign Language.  Some of the kids know Wolof but that is one tribal language I don’t know so throughout the camp we communicated with hand gestures and grunts.  It was great though, I think they got a lot out of it and on the court you could not tell they were deaf.
