Campers will reside in the Jarvis Hall dorms on campus and stay 1-2 per room in suites with a total of 6-8 campers. If you have a roommate request and have not already given it to us, please do so as soon as possible. Roommate requests are not guaranteed, if you don't have a roommate request, you will be placed in a room with someone near your age. It will be a great opportunity to meet someone new!

Bathrooms: Shared
Not provided
Suggested Spending Money: $40


The staff live in the dormitories with the campers and participate in evening activities. Drugs, alcohol and tobacco are strictly prohibited, and constitute, along with general misconduct, grounds for dismissal from camp without a refund.


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.


All registered campers are required to have a parent or legal guardian fill out US Sports Camps’ mandatory Health & Release Forms online before arrival at camp. The State of Connecticut 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.


A detailed Information Packet containing check-in location and address, on-site staff contact information, a checklist of things to bring, site-specific forms, and more will be emailed to all registered campers prior to camp. To check if your Information Packet is ready, click here.


At US Sports Camps, we hope you will not have to cancel your enrollment in camp. If you do though, there are options. For details on our Cancellation Policy, including cancellations of camp by US Sports Camps, please visit: www.ussportscamps.com/peace-of-mind-policy.


Transportation is not provided by the camp to or from any airports. If you are flying to or from camp, we recommend using an airport shuttle service. Please schedule flights as close as you can to the check-in times on the first day and check-out times on the last day.


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.

    He was to happy to make new friends

    August 14, 2019: This was his first time being at an overnight camp. He liked being on his own and he was so happy to make new friends. Another highlight of Marques' was winning the championship with his teammates.

    I loved camp!

    August 9, 2019: One highlight was when I was doing a dribbling drill and one of my teammates gave me a compliment. Another highlight was when another teammate told me that my rebounding was a big part of winning our scrimmage. I loved camp!

    By Far Best Camp I have Ever Attended!

    August 3, 2018: Staying on a College campus as beautiful as Trinity College made the overnight experience mature, responsible, grown up, and important. The Trinity College basketball coach was AMAZING and all their basketball players were so compassionate about the sport and the camp! There was a tremendous amount of learning on an hourly basis and daily basis. This was by far the best camp I have ever attended, it exceeded my expectations. My son loved it so much that now he wants to apply to Trinity College in 4 years. This is his "go to" camp!
