Derby Academy is located on Burditt Avenue in Hingham, Massachusetts, across from the harbor, and is accessible from both Route 3 and Route 3A. The Academy is well recognized as a leader in independent school education on the South Shore, located on a beautiful twenty-seven acre campus, adjacent to Broad Cove in Hingham, MA. The Derby Academy campus houses two gyms and campers will be broken up by age and ability. With over 12 baskets (some adjustable for younger campers) and 4 cross courts this gym is a great host for any camp or clinic. It is centrally located for the South Shore community.
*Please note that the Derby Academy gym is not air-conditioned but does have an HVAC system to increase air flow. Camper safety is always our number one priority. The gyms can get warm but we take every possible measure (HVAC system, open doors, and plenty of water breaks) to ensure campers are playing in a comfortable and safe environment.
