Summer basketball camp is the perfect way for kids to break up their summer vacations. They can meet new friends, get some quality exercise and learn new basketball skills. There are camps for kids with a lot of basketball ability and there are camps for kids for kids who are just learning the game and want to have fun. They range in length from camps that meet for a few hours on a weekend to overnight camps that last for a week.
Nike Basketball Camp
Nike, the shoe and activewear company, offers basketball camps for kids of all different ages and skill levels throughout the summer. The camps are run by college and high school coaches and offer complete supervision, often having some of the best camper-to-counsellor ratios of all camps. There are different camps for boys and girls, as well as different durations (day camp, extended day and overnight). Also, at each Nike camp, campers receive a Nike T-shirt, workbook, evaluation and certificate.
