Skills Camp

 

The purpose of the Skill Camp is to teach the fundamentals of basketball - dribbling, shooting, passing, rebounding, defense, and team play - while also stressing the importance of hard work, a positive attitude, and sportsmanship. We want our campers to have a GREAT time while also becoming better players and better people during their time with us.

Each camper will have a chance to enjoy our beautiful campus and facilities while receiving individual instruction from some of the top basketball coaches in the region.

FACILITIES

CAMP ATTIRE AND WHAT TO PACK
All campers should come to camp in basketball gear: athletic shorts, t-shirt/ jersey, socks, and shoes. Each overnight camper must provide his own bed sheets, blankets, pillow, towels, and toiletries.

CAMP BANK
Our staff will run a camp bank so that campers will not have to keep up with their own money during the week. At our Camp Store, campers will have the opportunity to purchase an assortment of snacks, drinks, and gear. Any money left over at the end of camp will be paid out in full at check-out.

MEDICAL FORMS AND INSURANCE
Two forms MUST be submitted for each camper:

1. Youth Program Medical Information Form (available here)
2. Liability Waiver (available here) Campers who do not complete and submit both forms will NOT be allowed to participate in camp. A professional trainer is on duty and doctors are on call at all times. Because of the rigorous schedule, each camper should be in good physical condition.


CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY
There will be an administrative fee of $ 50 for all cancellations, with the remaining balance being refunded after all camps have ended.
