Deb Smith and Jo Dill


All Deb Smith wanted to do was go to basketball camp, but when she looked for one, she discovered there wasn’t one for women of a certain age.

So, she did something about it and started the Not Too Late Basketball Camp.

Within a couple of years, the camp has exploded in popularity and it now draws women over 50 from across the country to Maine each summer.

She described what it’s been like to watch her big idea turn into a life-changing event.

And if you need more convincing about the power of the camp, we also talked to 62-year-old camper Jo Dill. She grew up in the days before Title IX and told Growing Bolder that this camp has been like a second childhood for her.
