Bounce Out the Stigma is a unique program founded by "Mighty" Mike Simmel back in 2005. He travels the country bringing his inspirational basketball camps and clinics to kids with special needs including seizure disorders, autism, ADD, ADHD, Downs Syndrome, emotional disorders and mental challenges. Growing up with a disability himself and bullied as a child, Mike wants kids to know “Limits Will Not Define You, Your WILL Defines Your Limits”. Now, a 13-year veteran of the world renowned Harlem Wizards, an experienced motivational speaker and winner of countless awards, Mike gives kids an experience they'll never forget!
In 2016, the Maryland Jaycees and Greater Waldorf Jaycees were lucky enough to partner with him to bring one of his 1-day camps to Charles County for an exceptional group of kids eager to make friends, improve motor skills and build self-confidence. In 2017, we will again partner with Mighty Mike for another event in the area and we want to make it even bigger and better than before. Due to our fundraising efforts, community support and the hard work of our many volunteers, this event will again be at no-cost to "campers" or their families.
Event Details Coming Soon!
