Steph Curry

Last week, Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry, 28, surprised the youngsters at his basketball camp in Hawaii by knocking on dormitory doors and yelling, “I'm selling Girl Scout cookies!”

The team posted an adorable video of one boy opening the door and falling to the floor after seeing his idol.

But smiles turned to frowns when the cost to attend Curry's basketball camp was revealed to be a staggering $2,000 per kid!

The price could go as high as $2,250 for children to be fed gourmet meals rather than fast food.

Curry, who as a child lived comfortably on his dad, Dell Curry's NBA salary, caters only to the spawn of the filthy rich. He does not offer scholarships for inner city, underprivileged youths, whom he does not relate to.

Yahoo Sports -- Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett slammed Curry for charging kids from $2,000 to $2,250 for his basketball camp in Hawaii over the July 4 weekend. Bennett, a Super Bowl champion for the NFL’s 2013 season and Pro Bowler for 2015, lives in Oahu during the offseason and does not charge for his annual football clinic, the fourth of which was held this Saturday with 700 children in attendance. Bennett took serious issue with the high cost of Curry’s camp and many other athletes who come through Hawaii for similarly expensive events for children.

Proving he is a shameless elitist, Curry responded to the criticism by promoting his brother, Seth Curry's basketball camp at Ventura College on July 30th. Steph noted that little bro Seth's camp is only $200 to attend.

In a post on Instagram.com, Steph Curry wrote: "If you're in the greater LA area, check out @sdotcurry at Ventura College. Won't cost you 2K and it will be a great time learning from a really TALENTED player. SethCurry.com."

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    Well This is okay, but it should be open to less fortunate children too. Which I hope is the case.

  • Smartypants

    I can't get mad at him for getting money when the poor find $$ to pay for Jordan's and IPhones.

    Basketball camps are a joke tho. So...

  • MotownExotic

    He should give away a few spots to less fortunate kids but overall he isn't obligated to

  • ShelbyMoore

    So the camp is only for rich kids or nah?

  • MsSincerity

    .....but it's in Hawaii and they're BEIGE children. What's the problem? It's not like it's the inner city. #PayUp

  • ShelbyMoore

    What poor family will be able to afford that mess. This light skinned as$ dummy with his light skinned as$ tendencies ain't shat. If you're going to help the kids, help the kids from your heart.

  • ShelbyMoore

    Jordans and iPhones cost $2k now?

  • mainey

    He should offer scholarships.

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    Lived in Hawaii and got plenty of beige poor folks, to include other races.

  • Libra80sBaby

    Ummm...the camp IS in Hawaii. But I agree he should offer some scholarships for less privileged kids to attend. But whatever. I dont care nun bout this dude nor his wife so......

  • Libra80sBaby

    The Prince pic is killin me softly with his song...lmaoooooo

  • MsSincerity

    I'll let the wealthy beige people care about the poor beige folks

  • Paige

    $2000.00 is a bit much, unless that includes airfare and lodging. Greedy. If I pay $2000 for a BB camp my son better come out with a full paid scholarship and guaranteed draft. I feel bad for the dummies who pay for it.

  • LeBrick James

    I figured he could have gotten some corporate sponsors (like his shoe sponsor Under Armor) to cover most of the cost. Not saying the camp has to be free, but $2000 is way out of the reach of most working-class/ middle-class families nowadays.
    I dont care if Michael Jordan himself had a camp, I wouldnt want to pay more than $500 for something like this.

  • Rodmilla De Ghent

    low key him and Ayesha the same selfish self-centered person. Birds of a feather marry and procreate together. who could tolerate her? someone exactly like her

  • Billy-Ray_Valentine”Capricorn”

    You know lightskin muthafuckas think they white anyway by default...They are the biggest coons in America suckin on the white mans bone just to get a buck or two!

  • Finding Forever…

    He betta learn from Esha & chill wit the Twitta fingas. Dem joints will mess around & cost cha, LOL. HIS camp, HIS fee but it wouldn't hurt to either (a) sponsor a few kids who couldn't afford it or (b) cut a few cost to lessen the fees. Dude threw a damn bone by suggesting his bubba at that, LOL. Guess young Curry NEEDS some fans too ;)?

  • Nanny

    2k for a weekend??

  • i troll it like i see it

    $2000.00 is very steep. It was clearly meant to be an exclusive experience for kids who's parents were very well off. I'm not sure how to feel about this because like Sandra said he's unable to relate to anyone who doesn't have that kind of money to burn...he went from rich to richer. There was no struggle.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    ........

  • That’s Interesting

    Eh. He doesn't have money like Lebron and others...14 million compared to Lebron's 300 million. However, it's very tacky for a professional athlete to charge kids for one of these things...especially 2 thousand. It's akin to using your name to get over on people. I'm not sure how the parents didn't know they would be paying beforehand. That makes no sense.

    Sitting here reading these comments and as soon as I get ready to like a comment I see something about him being light skin. Smdh.

    Anways, $2k is a lot of money for a camp. Period. It is clear who his target demographic is and that is good to know.

  • MissHarlem

    Facepalm. That moment when you forgot what it was like as a kid and not be rich and have a dream.

  • PhillyFacts

    My son play hs basketball he's in 9th grade and plays senior varsity; a majority of the "camps and clinics" he receive invites too are ridiculously expensive. One camp for each week (which consist of 3 days) through Hoop Group which one can only attend through invitation was $600+, my son said mom I don't wanna go one of my team mates went last year it was predominantly white kids there and the instructors went over drills we're already learning it was a waste of money. I live in Philly my sons (3) have all attended camps and clinics for less money, heck sometimes free. My 14yo has played AAU and Sonny Hill League free for the past two years because his coaches wanted him to play. These camps/clinics are a business, and people are not in it to help the children their in it for the money. #phuckSteph

    I attended a basketball camp when I was a kid. Non celeb backed camp. I remember my Mother complaining about the cost, and even getting into an argument with my Grandmother who said my ungreatful ass didn't deserve it...Grandma didn't like me? Anyway, any cost will be expensive to someone somewhere. I can hear a single mother of four saying she can't afford a 50 dollar cost...Is what it is...

  • AnonymousRose

    I sent my child to a camp every summer when she was 10 yrs old started out at 2850.00, for 5 weeks away from home by the time she was 16 it 5800.00, it became half price her last year she was 17 as she moved her way up in the camp...I would do it again it was one her best life experience...to this day she still have those friends from all over the world.

Third stop with the sexual dance moves. Don’t nobody want to see loose meat jiggle or wiggle. Titty meat up there looking like congealed gravy. And I know your knees got about 3-5 faces from the whitewalkers in there ..Game of Thrones ……AND LAST ….I know you didn’t start the song off with IT’S THE QUEEEEEEEN and then box dance yourself into a dizzy square while chanting in this order…in this order.. in this order…. Until you got musty. I’m done. You have taken all of my energy.

  • QweenOfThorns

  • Free speech cost Sheen

    Y'all complain over everything. If that's his fee, that's his fee. Y'all complain over Russell Wilson parenting Future son instead of being happy that a black male has a chance to be something other than a mumbling high ho rapper with a heap of kids. We frown on anything positive. Curry doesn't have to help inner city youth there are hundreds of inner city programs. Most folks complaining and telling him what he should do don't invest in their own kids. This would becomes dumber each day. Y'all don't work for under your wage so why should anyone else

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

  • LeBrick James

    True. Same thing with football camps. A lot of us pay a lot of money for these things.. plus out-of-town travel expenses to games etc. The average white family can pay that same kind of cost but it's less of a financial hit to them.

    We can. Cheer camps are much more than $2k. And that was 15 years ago. And my niece would have to go to not one, but TWO bc she was a tumbler and a flyer. So we talking the $1800 3 day cheer camp that was MANDATORY for All Star squads, and the Stunt Camp as well. Same price. Every summer. From Age 9-21 bc she cheered in college too. Which is why I am perplexed to what parents are crying over the cost in this story and why folks are mad at Steph. Your kid participates on a certain level, you know ahead of time the costs associated.

  • BKLYNS MAMA

    what I come to understand...After my 12yr old played basketball...is that SOME of these basketball camps and clinics as well as PRIVATE COACHING is big funkin business.. its more of a BUSINESS than "Charity" ..especially, the "Celebrity" Camps. They know that a certain type of household can afford this and will pay to go..its almost like they selling a dream...this dad, told me....the average white and Asians kids at these camps will never play basketball on a competitive level, but to go to these camps gives them hope... its all BUSINESS...for profit.

    Well the parents knew the cost prior to sending their kids there so, if you're insulted by the cost keep it moving. There are plenty of ridiculously expensive things that I won't consider paying for.

    There's handbags that costs thousands of dollars, if I can't afford to keep thousands in said bag or bank account then then I'll stick in a price range I can afford. Hawaii in itself is an expensive place to live.

    Those parents are paying for the name they can't be that naive to think that because their child attended a basketball camp owned by Curry that this will solidify their child as the next basketball star. Personally I think the kids who are there are the ones who get picked last for dodgeball. Foh

  • KennyHollywood

    This is why Broke people shouldn't have childeren. It makes me sick when people complain about things like this, but aren't concerned that their children go to crappy schools. Or live in crappy neighborhoods, with no resources. Or can't afford Tudors to help their children impove their SAT scores? Elite Technology camps for children cost 7K for a few weeks in the summer, but I don't hear people complaining about that. This type of stuff is for "privelidged" children and if you can't afford it either get your finances together before you have children or don't complain. I know broke mothers that spend $200 on hair per month which equals to $2400 a year. Priorities?? This is a top 5 Basketball player in the world, in Hawaii. We can't save $200 a month for our children to have these experiences?

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    Oh HELL YEAH. Ha!

  • i troll it like i see it

    I'll say this, every state has its poor communities, Hawaii is not excluded! They could have opened up the camp for kids who didn't have rich parents, they could have gotten sponsorship for the kids who couldn't afford it. Where there's a will there's a way.

    So you've never heard of Michael Jordan's camp? It's not a charity, it's a business he operates outside of his many philanthropic endeavors. As many have stated here, cheering, football, basketball, band, etc. are all activities in which the parents foot the bill of more than 2,000 for their child to participate annually. And those aren't celebrity run camps or leagues.

    He's not billing it as a charity camp...and it has nothing to do with his net worth. So fall back.

    If I were Steph and his PR person I would have said thank you for the suggestion, next year I will run the camp but provide a scholarship for X amount of children who may not be able to afford the camp. He is entitlled to run the camp and I'm sure there are plenty of expenses such as employess, venues, etc, but it is always good to give back a bit as well.

  • Erin

    First of all he's not charging kids anything he is charging the parents. Secondly there is a place for Less fortunate kids its called the YMCA. If you wanted your kids to be able to afford $2k camp make better choices in life as far as a career is concerned. Why can't people just do what they can afford. Tell your kids "mommy don't have that kinda money" and do better in life. Don't blame Steph Curry for the career / life choices you made. My son went to Kobe camp 10 years ago because we could afford it.....period. The years before that he was at the park!

    Michael Bennetts camp is like the one you speak of. He doesn't make nearly as much as curry & yet he found a way to not charge for his camp. Curry not only charges but charges a a few semesters at community colleges in fees to go. Most locals (key word LOCALS) are not rich & he should at least offer a few spots for those kids to attend.

  • hi-liter

    Even though the flyer up there says $200 not $2000, he and any other professional athlete who is making 7 or 8 figures should not be charging a dime for their camps, that goes for football, basketball, any of the sport camps ran by professional athletes, especially the popular ones like Steph. And I hope he was giving them shoes of his away for free, 2 pairs, one for now and one for when they turn 50.

    Not ALL camps are expensive. He's obviously promoting his clearance bin 90% off brother for $200 & Michael Bennetts camp is free. He could have it sponsored if needed but he obviously makes alot more than the 2 charging alot less or not at all for their camp. Try again.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I think as blacks we got it twisted and we stay confused. We talk about needing black role models in the inner city, but give a pass to celebs that don't want to give back. We talk about our women being black queens, but praise celeb women for being pro miss u us. Rihanna being one of those examples. We talk about whyts stealing our music, Adele, Justin Timberlake, but we don't buy Algebra, Chrisette Michelle, Ledisi, or Jill to name a few from the stores. Yeah a few of us will buy their cds, but where are the masses? We sat right there and allowed Tyga a black man to have underage relations with a child. Where was the outcry? IF black people are going to ever have unity and come together, then we have to come together and agree on some of the simplest things like I just mentioned. How are we ever going to deal with black on black crime, when we can't even get a rich athlete to come to the hood? We can't stop buying cds from the dude selling them at the barbershops and salons for the low-low. Adele's people go to Target and buy her music, where do we buy Jill Scotts? Don't mind me I'm just raddling off, but I think you guys get my point. This is one of the few sites that talk maturely so I hope you guys aren't offended, but understand how we contradict ourselves and keep giving celebs that we like a pass.

But he can tell you "hey my brothers camp offers the Dollar store version if you want to complain". Curry could have this "camp" sponsored to help if needed that apparently he doesn't normally attention hence why it's a surprise he was there. It's not that he charges it's how much &;the fact that there most folks especially locals in Hawaii couldn't afford it. Then you have Michael Bennett who makes many millions less that curry offering his camp free! FREE....So yeah.

    Well... what can you really expect from Steph? His upbringing is that of someone born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He was born into a rich family and is not a product of the 'urban experience'. He probably thinks that $2,000.00 is a bargain...

  • the guest

    Exactly.

    It's a matter of priorities. $200 a month on nail tips and pedicures or $500 on iphones or $250 on sneakers could easily instead be saved for basketball camp with Steph Curry if a parent's priorities are in order.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with Steph Curry offering an elite basketball camp at $2000. Truth is there are actually far more basketball camps offered for underprivileged inner city kids than there are for kids from middle and upper class families.

  • the guest

    iPhones are $400-500, Jordans $200, weekly nail tips and pedicures $200 minimum per month, all are monies that could be saved toward $2000 camp tuition.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Maybe, but right now we are talking about Steph Curry's basketball camp, specifically.

  • the guest

    Exactly.

  • the guest

    There are already many camps for poor children hosted by celebrities.

  • the guest

    There are rich black people and people of color who send their children to elite camps. Not only poor black children deserve opportunities. There are far more basketball camps for poor kids than for wealthy kids.

    What does Steph Curry's color have to be insulted? He's taking time out to teach kids. That's what matters. His brother is offering a lower cost camp.

  • Allihave2say

    I was nodding with you until you got to Tyga. Don't! We spoke on our concerns all over the blogs in that regard. The white folks including the child's parents didn't care. People cried out to child services who had enough evidence to warrant a home visit but chose to do nothing, or at least we did hear of it as we did Willow Smith.

    Steph is running a business. In this case his business was get $$$ from families who could afford it. That's enterprise and entrepreneurship. One of the reason black folks go out of business is because we are told we have to give everything away cheap to free, while everyone else in the community charges their full price. If you can't afford this venue then go to the free one or the one affordable to you.

    These kids travelled to Hawaii, tickets aren't cheap. Then there's housing, medical care and caregivers there to watch over the kids, they don't go home at night.
