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!

Weekend Stayover

Weekend stayover at Curry College is available for $275 per weekend. This price includes housing, supervision and meals for Friday night, Saturday and Sunday morning and includes a weekend activity.

Early Arrivals/Late Departures

There is a $125 fee per day to accommodate campers arriving early or staying beyond the final day of their registered session. This fee includes housing and meals. Please note that our camp staff cannot receive early campers prior to Sunday, June 25 (the first day of our first session), nor may campers stay past Friday, August 4 (the final day of our last session).

Camper Evaluation

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.   

Supervision

The MBSC 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 from Boston Logan are available for $100 one way or $200 roundtrip. 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, each camper is eligible for a $20 discount. If 10 or more campers register together, each camper is eligible for a $40 discount. Teams can register online or via mail/fax.

  • To register your team online: Please have a team contact reach out directly to the USSC office at 1-800-645-3226 to receive a discount code to identify your group. Campers may then register individually through the website at their convenience and apply the coupon code during check-out.
  • To register your team via mail/fax: 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.

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! 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

My son loved it all!

July 6, 2016: This was my son's 2nd year at camp and once again, he had an amazing time. My son loved it all. From the lunch and dinner, to the field trips, and being able to do what he loves best, play basketball. He never wanted to come home at pick up because that's just how much fun he was having! I love how the owner, directors, and staff keep the children safe. They make safety a priority especially with the younger kids.

I met new people and learned about different cultures.

July 15, 2016: I mostly enjoyed meeting new people and learning new languages and about different cultures. I loved getting to know the counselors and the staff and hanging out with them. I wish me and my sister could go for multiple weeks!

We are from Indonesia and felt very welcomed at camp.

July 26, 2016: This camp is well run. Everything was arranged well. We felt very welcomed. We are from Indonesia, we flew from Indonesia to Boston for our holiday and this was the first time for my son to join a US basketball camp and he enjoyed it a lot. I hope my son can ask some of his friends from Indonesia to join the camp together next year smilesmile

I felt welcomed and can't wait to go back next year.

August 5, 2016: The coach was awesome, Coach Herman from Spain. (Not sure if that's how you spell it). I felt welcomed and can't wait to go back next year. My favorite part was going to different courts and the playoffs. Plus meeting new people from different places.

My son has developed more confidence.

August 9, 2016: It was the first time my son went to overnight camp and he enjoyed himself. It was his first time being independent and I believe he will develop more confidence. I can't wait to see what he has learned from this camp during the next basketball season. Thanks!

By far the best sports camp!

August 8, 2016: Of all the sports camps we have paid for over the years, this camp BY FAR was the best. The cost was worth every dime on day one alone! Thanks for having such a great staff who improved our son's skills, but more importantly, his confidence!
