LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – It seems like yesterday Rajon Rondo was a young kid showing his skills at Eastern and then at the University of Kentucky.

Fast-forward and he’s an 8-year veteran with the Boston Celtics and every summer comes back to his hometown to put on a basketball camp.

It’s a place where they not only teach basketball, but they want to ensure kids understanding of the importance of education and life skills.

Rondo himself is just a big kid who loves to get out and interact with kids.

“I think that’s what separates a lot of camps. I try to attend camp every day. I want the kids to see my face and I just don’t want to throw my name on the camp and not attend or show up once a day,” he said.

Rondo even invited special guests including current University of Louisville player Montrezl Harrell.

Harrell spoke to the kids, signed autographs and took pictures with kids.

Camp Rondo will have another session in July.
