Location & Facilities
Boys’ campers will stay in our Parker House facility and girls campers will stay at the Traber Center facility, both facilities are on the camp property and within walking distance of the dining hall and main camp activities. Breakfast & dinner will be in the dining hall with the other overnight campers and lunch is packed and eaten at the gymnasium cafeteria (Gymnasium activities are typically from 9am-1: 45 pm).

Programming & Daily Schedule
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.

Mr. Dave’s Bio
Basketball Camp will be directed by Sankanac staffer, Dave Stallard. As a student at Baptist Bible College, Dave was a
two-time all American and scored over 1000 points in his college career. BBC’s team record Dave’s senior year was 24-6 and they won the NCCAAII East Regional Championship. They went to the NCCAAII National Championship and lost at the buzzer with a close finish. In the NEAC they finished 2nd place in the regular season.
Just out of college, Dave was offered a position on a professional basketball team in Germany but gave up the opportunity to follow the Lord’s leading by moving here to Camp Sankanac in 2007.
Dave and his wife, Brielle (Sankanac office manager/registrar) have been serving the Lord at Camp Sankanac since 2007. Dave is really looking forward to camp and hopes that many of the guys he’s played ball with on the Sankanac court will come out for camp!
