SINCE 2017.

Tarik started TRANSFORMATION50 Basketball and Life Skills Camp with the goal of providing 50 boys a free quality summer camp. Starting this year, he will host two camp sessions to give 100 boys ages 11 -14 a chance to attend a camp. We teach boys skills during TRANSFORMATION50 that they can apply right away and that offer a foundation for building a successful future. Campers will have an awesome time filled with memorable moments and lessons that will last a lifetime during two full intense days of rigorous play and meaningful activities.


Transformation50 Camp is more than a basketball camp. It’s a life-changing and character-building experience.

Campers play basketball, participate in interactive life skills workshops, and learn techniques for good decision-making. Tarik Black and a team of caring volunteers take opportunities each day to offer character education and lessons that instill values and teach integrity.

The skills I have learned from the camp I have used in everyday life and on the court. I prepare myself more and understand that working harder is what I will have to do to get where I want to be.

– Brian Paige Jr., Camper

I learned how to be self-confident when speaking in public. I can tie my own tie. I learned how to manage my allowance and I opened a saving account.

Transformation50 taught my son how to be more confident with speaking in public and how to deal with being rejected.
