A year ago, Kevin Durant donated $1 million to the city of Moore, Okla., after a tornado ripped through town.

This week, Durant still is giving back to Moore.

When registration for his youth basketball camp at the University of Oklahoma filled up, Durant decided to open a second camp, which will be held at Westmoore High School and allow 600 more kids to attend.

Durant also said there are free camp spots for the children who were affected by the storm that came through Moore in the spring of 2013.

"When I learned there was almost double the number of kids on the waiting list as enrolled in the camp, it was an easy decision to add the second site," Durant said in a release provided to The Oklahoman. "This allows me to double my impact on youth in the community and bring attention back to the area of Moore."

Durant will spend time at both camps and each camper gets an autograph and a team photo.
