A Message from the Director

CAMP GOALS & IDEALS A high school coach once told us, “Do you know why I like your camp? It’s because you teach – you don’t just throw out the ball and say ‘play’.” The two long-stated goals of The McCracken Basketball Camp are that each camper should 1) have fun; and 2) learn to become the best player that he or she can possibly be....

P.S. to Parents

Parents ask me why they should send their son or daughter to our camp. What makes our camp so different from other camps? It’s no secret. Our philosophy is that we believe in personal attention for each player, both on and off the courts. We are not an assembly line, stuffing kids into slots. The individual is the most important part of our camp and always will be. We would...

Learned so much

I learned so much about basketball during my week at camp -- and also some things about teamwork. I probably could not have made it completely through Defense Day and Stations without the coaches and the team that I was with.

"Kudos to McCracken organization"

As a parent of a two-time camp attendee, I'd like you to let other parents know a couple of things. First of all, this camp is not for the lazy or unmotivated. My daughter comments all the time about how challenging she found camp and how much she loved it. She's remembering and using what she's learned from camp in her regular season play. Second, if you’re looking for a basketball camp that is truly worth the "price of admission"...THIS IS IT. You as a parent get the satisfaction of knowing your money isn't being wasted but more importantly, the skills and lessons your child will come home with are priceless. The McCracken Organization employs terrific coaches for the camps. Coaches who can communicate and teach, while promoting good sportsmanship and FUN. Kudos to the entire McCracken Organization !
