Camp Hours

Check-in

Overnight Campers Check-in: Sunday between 12PM-2PM 
Extended Day Campers Check-in: Sunday between 1:30PM-2:30PM
Day Campers Check-in: Sunday between 1:30PM-2:30PM 

Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week. In addition, campers will be evaluated and then split up into smaller groups according to age and ability.   

Check-out

There are two checkout times available for all campers on Friday, the last day of camp: 12PM-2PM & 4PM-6PM. Friday is technically a full day of camp. Campers checking out Friday are allowed to attend the second basketball session from 2PM-4:45PM; we therefore suggest the 4PM-6PM checkout to get the most out of your camp session. However, we understand that parents’ schedules vary, and have therefore opened the early checkout option for those campers that need to leave early.

Our activities are pre-organized and include events such as: MLS Soccer Games, Boston Red Sox Baseball Games, Laser Tag, Bowling, Hard Rock Café, Charlie Horse, Funway Café, 6 Flags (weekend), Water Country (weekend), Whale Watch (weekend), and much much more!

Activities are not mandatory, and campers either choose to attend a few activities during the week, all activities, or no activities. There will be plenty to do on-campus for campers who choose to not participate in off-campus activities including: our ping pong room, watching movies, board games, card games, volleyball, and more. Campers from all sports are housed together and participate in activities as a whole. Counselors will provide 24/7 supervision for both on and off-campus activities to keep the appropriate ratios on the trip and back at the dorms! Click here for our Schedule of Evening Activities.

Weekend Stayover

Weekend stayover at Curry College is avaliable for $250 per weekend. This price includes housing, supervision and meals for Friday night, Saturday and Sunday morning and includes a weekend activity. Click here for our Schedule of Weekend Activities.

Supervision

The MBSC/Nike Sports Camps at Curry College has two separate staff groups: coaching staff and counselor staff. The coaching staff is available during the day for all basketball related activities and the counselor staff during all non-sport hours. MBSC directors reside in the dorm building with campers.

Transportation

Airport and train pick up and drop-off services are available for $150. Transportation forms are included in the registration packet that you will receive prior to camp.

Registration Packet

A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact numbers, and a checklist of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring. The US Sports Camps health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp. The State of Massachusetts requires a copy of camp participants’ most recent physical and record of immunizations, shots, etc., in addition to the US Sports Camps health and release form.  

Scholarships

We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.

Group Discounts

If five or more campers register together, as a group by mail or fax, each camper will receive a $20 discount. If 10 or more campers register together, as a group by mail or fax, each camper will receive a $40 discount. Click "Get Brochure" above and print the application. All applications must be received at the same time via mail or fax. If all members of your group pay with a Visa or MasterCard, feel free to fax your applications to 415-479-6061 to expedite processing. Late or individual registrations are not eligible to receive the group discount.

Facilities

Curry College, located in Milton, Massachusetts, is considered one of the most beautiful small college campuses in New England and is only 7 miles from Boston. Its outstanding facilities include eleven outdoor courts, indoor and outdoor basketball courts, new air conditioned dorms, and a wonderful dining facility.

Campers will train at Curry College and Glover or Tucker Elementary Schools. Curry College's facilities are on-site and consist of 2 outdoor courts and 2 field houses. Glover and Tucker are indoor courts and only 3 miles from campus. If the off-campus facilities are needed, campers are transported in the morning by school bus and will return to Curry College for lunch. They then come back to Curry College at 4:30pm to have dinner and participate in all of the evening activities. 

*Note: Basketball will be played primarily on the Curry campus this summer! We may still use an off-site location on occasion but a much larger portion of the basketball will be played on the Curry College campus in the two basketball gyms and tree-lined outdoor courts!

Signs will be placed all over campus and camp staff will also direct traffic. LOST? Call us at 1-800-836-6473

It was nice to meet people you ordinarily wouldn't meet in your usual day to day and share a common goal which is to become a better player regardless of where you come from. The only thing that matters here is that we all love basketball!!!

I had a very positive experience at the Nike Camp I attended. My game improved a lot thanks to the help of the extremely nice staff.

  • 5/5.

My son was the youngest camper and the smallest camper so I worried about his being accepted and he was easily immersed into the games/drills by all. The kids were great and he had a wonderful time smile
