Jack loved the camp
July 22, 2019: Jack loved the camp and playing basketball all day. He enjoyed the varied activities to help him improve his game. He came home tired everyday but still excited to keep practicing.
— Karen G., Parent
September 2, 2018: Zachary loved it! He told me how hard they worked, which was much to his liking. He lived the variety and intensity of the drills and instruction. And if course the games. Seems like the perfect balance of hard work and intensity & duration of drills, with play. I was very impressed by the rogue placed on technique. To have an 11 year old come home excited about something as in-glamorous as “footwork” and wanting to show me what he learned?!? Your coaches must be doing something right!
— Andrew F., Parent
Loved the coaches
August 24, 2018: Max really enjoyed camp again this year. The experience provided a perfect blend of fun, learning, and playing. The counselors were all terrific - encouraging, motivating, and knowledgeable. They really knew how to make sure each player, regardless of level, was able to grow as a basketball player.
— Alan J., Parent
August 24, 2018: My daughter came home every day and practiced the new skills she learned and said she wished she could go to Nike camp all summer. She was very enthusiastic about going every day and we found the coach feedback really helpful.

— Amanda E., Parent
August 25, 2017: My son loved this camp and was excited to go everyday. He told me about all the skills he practiced/learned each day . He made some new friends and talked about being a team player.

This is a high quality camp that is run well
August 25, 2017: Great balance of instruction, drills, and competition to keep the kids interested. Very positive and encouraging staff. Kids of all skill levels were integrated well. It's just large enough to allow for scrimmages and fun competitions, but small enough to allow for some individual feedback and instruction. My only suggestion is to extend the pick up time at an extra cost!
— Alan J., Parent
