Basketball Camp

July 23-27, 2018

This camp is held on the Alfred University campus in our newly remodeled Galanis Family Arena in the McLane Center and is for boys and girls entering grades 3-12. Campers will be instructed on every aspect in the game of basketball. Individualized instruction will be provided in a fun-filled environment! Each day will consist of stations, team and individual contests and games. Each camper in attendance will receive a T-shirt.

The camp will run from 9 AM-3 PM Monday through Thursday; 9 AM-noon on Friday. The gym will open at 8:30 AM each day (do not drop your camper off prior to 8:30 AM as there will not be any supervision until that time) and will remain open for "open shooting" until 3:30 PM. Campers may be picked up between 3-3:30 PM daily but must be picked up no later than 3:30 as there will be no supervision after that time.
