The ninth edition of the Basketball without Borders Americas camp was held from July 5-8 in Nassau, Bahamas. A total of 66 athletes born in 2000 were invited from 16 countries and territories within the Americas to learn from NBA and FIBA players, alumni and coaches and to train with and compete against the best young players from each nation. 
 
Of the 66 athletes who attended camp, 11 were from Ontario. Eight athletes were invited for the boys’ camp and four for the girls’ camp.
