COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)
Former Mizzou basketball star Laurence Bowers is hosting his seventh annual Camp Bowers this week at the Columbia Sports Fieldhouse.
Bowers said the camp set a new record with 315 kids participating this year.
"The fact that the camp is continuously growing - I think that's a testament to my staff and my wife and her staff behind the scenes and the amount of effort that I put into it," Bowers said. "I'm very blessed, very fortunate to be thought so highly of, and it's very fulfilling."
