    Jake hopes to attend camp again next year

    My daughter is a new basketball player and loved camp!

    July 27, 2016: I want to start off by saying that I personally love McCracken Basketball Camp. I went there 4 summers myself when I was ages 9-12. My daughter is a very new basketball player and she learned way more at this camp than I could ever teach her (I used to play myself but it has been a long time!) She absolutely loved camp and told us that she had the best time. She loved the contests, the skill work, the scrimmaging and the fun camp activities. She is definitely a stronger player.

    My daughter was inspired by the talent at camp.

    July 29, 2016: For my beginner basketball player, she was inspired by the talent and the coaching to move forward with her own training. She learned drills she could do on her own to improve as well as the importance of teamwork.

    We'll be back next year

    July 30, 2015: One of the workers made an impact on my son and spent some one on one time helping him. The only thing I would recommend is meeting each of the workers and understanding their background. As a parent, this would help set your mind at ease.

    Camp was excellent

    August 2, 2015: My favorite was meeting new people and getting to make new friends. The shooting day was great too since I needed help on my form and I got increasingly better. I even got second place in the shooting competition and now I can come meet everyone again in October!

    Excellent camp

    August 16, 2014: Our daughter was registered as a day camper as we were nervous about her age no willingness to stay overnight. After one day she was begging to be an overnight camper. The instructors were enthusiastic, knowledgeable and sincere. We will 100% be registering our daughter next year. We've already began recruiting friends.
