Proceeds to Support Wade's World Foundation and Sandals Foundation Game Changer Program

Miami, Florida (April 8, 2015) - NBA Champion Dwyane Wade will host his fifth annual Fantasy Basketball Camp for men over the age of 35. The four day event will take place at the Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa in Hollywood Beach, Florida from Thursday, June 25, 2015 through Sunday, June 28, 2015. The weekend will kick off with a draft party on the evening of Thursday, June 25.

Camp participants will enjoy a weekend of fun and intense competition with four days of tournaments, special events, seminars, networking opportunities, and the chance to learn from the pros. A two day youth camp will also be held on Friday and Saturday for boys and girls ages 7-18. A portion of the proceeds from this year's Fantasy Basketball Camp will be donated to the Wade's World Foundation and Sandals Foundation Game Changer program and will go to build multi‐purpose sports courts in the Caribbean as well as one in South Florida, and provide underprivileged youth with access to planned sports, recreation, a healthy lifestyle, and family engagement.

"I am very excited to host my fantasy camp for the fifth year and to work with both adults and youth to share our love of basketball in a weekend of fun competition," said Dwyane Wade. "I look forward to my fantasy camp every summer and this year I am proud to include two of my greatest passions, basketball and giving back to the community through Game Changer."

The DWFC has been led by world-class coaches and leaders including Miami HEAT's own Erik Spoelstra, Indiana University's Men's Head Coach Tom Crean, University of Miami's Men's Head Coach Jim Larranga, and NBA Legend Rick Barry. The DWFC has included past appearances from actor Will Smith, rapper Young Jeezy, comedian/actor Kevin Hart, actor Jamie Foxx, and other professional basketball players such as LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Udonis Haslem, Greg Oden, Raja Bell, Alonzo Mourning, and Tim Hardaway, Jr.

The Dwyane Wade Fantasy Camp debuted in Miami, Florida in 2011. After receiving many requests from fans, challenging him to one-on-ones, Wade decided to take on the challenge by uniquely hosting an elite, weekend-long event for campers who were willing to take their game to the next level. Men ages 35 and older from all over the United States accepted the challenge and lived out their fantasies while going head-to-head with some of basketball's greatest coaches, players, and trainers.
