Dates: July 30 – August 5, 2017
Location: Camp Sankanac & Limerick Chapel Gym
If you’re serious about improving your game and learning the fundamentals of basketball you won’t want to miss this camp! From individual instruction from an experienced coaching staff to competitive games, this camp is designed to enhance your skill level whether you are a beginner or a varsity level player.
Campers will stay in our Traber Center facility and will commute each day to Limerick Chapel. Limerick Chapel has a beautiful indoor gym with quality wood floors and basketball equipment. There is also a brand new outdoor court with eight baskets.
Although this is a program of Camp Sankanac, it is a specialty camp and will have a different schedule from our regular programs. The Parker House, where the campers will stay, is separate from the regular camp. This basketball-focused program will offer some free time in the afternoon where campers can visit the Trading Post (our camp store), swim, use the boats, and a variety of other activities at Camp Sankanac.
