HASBROUK HEIGHTS - Bergen County kids got more than basketball training at a local 24 Hour Fitness with the Harlem Globetrotters.

The celebrity team hosts summer camps throughout the country with three sessions a day.

Fatima Maddox, known as "TNT," says the group wants to help kids learn the sport, but also some important life lessons.

"We're big on team work, big on communication, we're big on preventing bullying and character building," Maddox says. "So you know we want to mix that in with basketball so they're not only learning basketball but learning some other things to help them as people."

This is one of the last weeks the Harlem Globetrotters will be hosting their camps.
