Treviso 2001 - The inaugural Basketball without Borders camp took place from June 30 – July 3 2001 at La Ghirada Sports Complex in Treviso, Italy. The camp was attended by 50 of the top players, aged 12-14, from Bosnia, Croatia, Macedonia, Slovenia, and Yugoslavia. Present at the camp to serve as coaches were 9 NBA players including Vlade Divac and Toni Kukoc.

Camp participants were divided into 4 teams coached by the NBA players. The teams remained with each other throughout the duration of the camp, participating in fundamental drills in the mornings and a competition which took place in the afternoons. The final day of the camp included an All-Star game and an award ceremony. Teams were ranked according to their performance in the fundamental drills which took place in the morning clinics.

Off the court, campers attended daily seminars designed to promote leadership, conflict resolution, and living a healthy life without drugs. The seminars were held in conjunction with the UNDCP (United Nations Drug Control Program), who co-sponsored the camp along with FIBA and the NBA.
