Basketball Day Camp for Girls’ Entering Grades K-3

(Limited to 40 campers)

Cost per camper:  $150.00

Times:  9am - 12pm (lunch not included)

Our goal is to make basketball fun and exciting with a daily routine that will include stretches, fun activities and exciting games based on the fundaments of basketball to introduce campers to some of the basics of the game. 


Smaller basketballs:  More fitted for smaller hands allowing the players to perform the same drills that our older campers will be performing.  Campers can keep their basketball at the end of the week.

Lowered baskets:  Allowing for more success of learning how to make baskets with the proper shooting form and providing a wonderful feeling of success by seeing the ball go through the net

Camp t-shirt for all participants

A camp jump rope for all participants
