You can attend one that covers just about any- thing, especially when it relates to an extra-curricu- lar activity and to be more specific, athletics. Count me as one who enjoyed the benefits of a camp as well. A trip to the University of Oklahoma was made last weekend for an Okla- homa Secondary School Activities Association basketball officials' camp that coincided with a high school board team camp hosted by OU head coach Lon Kruger. A bit more on him later. While it was an enjoyable experience, it definitely wasn't a walk in the park. We arrived at the Lloyd Noble Center to check in at 7:30 a.m. last Friday.
