About the Ron Palmer Basketball & Academic Camp

2005 marked the inaugural year for the Ron Palmer Basketball and Academic Camp. The camp was the brainchild of long time Poly Basketball coach Erroll Parker who wanted to provide a safe, fun, and academically challenging basketball camp to Long Beach youth. In his desire to continue the legacy of academic scholarship and basketball acuity for which Poly has a reputation, he brought his idea to legendary high school basketball coach Ron Palmer who agreed to co-found the program and allow it to be his namesake.
