What Camp Is

Competition in 3-on-3, free throw, 3-point shoot-out, and hot shot will challenge you as you strive for a spot on the camp All-Star teams. Awards are presented to competition winners, as well as to the best offensive player, best defensive player, and Hustle Award winner. All participants receive a certificate.

Challenge yourself daily in skill development in four stations: ball-handling/passing station, shooting station, defense station, individual and team development station. Each 45-minute station is packed with instruction, demonstration, drill work, and competition.

Catch new ideas in enhancing yourself as a teammate. Areas may include playing with confidence, focus, motivation, mental toughness and commitment. Participate in various team-building activities and discussions.

Compete each day in 3 on 3 competition and 5 v. 5 play learning to execute improved skills in realistic, live-game situations. Both 3 on 3 and 5 v. 5 play have pool play and then an exciting tournament to finish the week. An All-Star game will be played at the end of the week featuring the top players in each age group.

Basketball Camp is held in the PCC Sports Center arena, home to the PCC Eagles intercollegiate basketball team. Regulation-size courts in the PCC Field House provide additional space for games.

However you spend your free time, you’ll be spending it with your newfound friends. You can explore the Sports Center—climb the rock wall, bowl with friends, cool off in the ice skating rink, or make a splash at the water park. You can grab a smoothie at the Common Grounds Café and just hang out. Each day, chapel will be a time to come together and grow spiritually.

Coaches

For every six campers that a school sends to our sports camps, one coach from that school may attend the camp for only the $55 Registration Fee and will stay with the campers (additional coaches pay coach fee). A coach must accompany each team attending Basketball Camp.
