Please note that it is not required to bring a basketball to camp as they are provided by the staff for camp instruction.

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. Parents are invited to attend the closing ceremony! Departure immediately following.


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.

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. 


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.

*Please note, this information is subject to change.

Denison University Gym

Campers will utilize Livingston Gymnasium in the Mitchell Center on campus for basketball instruction. The expansive Mitchell Center houses Livingston Gymnasium, the new Trumbull Aquatics Center, Mitchell Fieldhouse, the Crown Fitness Center, and Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse. Mr. Mitchell was the lead donor for both the original Mitchell indoor track construction which opened in 1994, and the most recent facility renovation and expansion that was completed in 2013. 

Down the hall from the aquatics center and the indoor track, is the home of Denison basketball and volleyball, Livingston Gymnasium. The facility, which opened in 1949 and seats 1,500, underwent a major renovation in 2005, highlighted by new bleachers and chair-back seating. Over the years the venerable gym has played host to local high school tournaments, collegiate postseason contests, speakers, and musical acts. In 1966, Diana Ross and the Supremes performed in front of a packed house at Livingston Gym.  The facility is named for alumnus and longtime athletic director, Walter J. Livingston, a 1905 Denison graduate.

    Staff was great.

    July 4, 2017: My son had a great time and wants to go back next year. Denison University directions were confusing. Once we did find the site, the staff was great and things went well.

    I loved the detail in his evaluation.

    June 30, 2016: My son had an awesome time and wants to come back next year as an overnight camper. He really enjoyed the staff and their enthusiasm to help him. He made new friends, loved the food, and the mixed in pool time. And he was really excited to get a 3v3 award. As a parent, I loved the detail in his evaluation. I felt that whoever filled it out really knew him.

    The staff took care of my son after his friend left homesick.

    July 5, 2016: When the one friend my son attended camp with left mid-week (homesick), I appreciated that the director answered right away when I called to make sure that the counselors could keep an extra eye on my child the rest of camp. Thank you!

    Tucker had a blast

    July 7, 2015: Tucker enjoyed his coach and getting to know all the coaches. They were very personable with the campers. As a mom, I think 3 nights is just about right for an overnight camp for Tucker's age. He really enjoyed it again this year, but was ready to come home at the end. Tucker also liked having a lounge in the dorm where all the overnight campers could hang out at night. They did not have that this year, so they boys just stayed in their rooms during down time. I felt like he had a chance to get to know the other campers in the lounge last year. Overall, this camp is wonderful and Denison University has excellent facilities! Tucker has come for two years & I think he will come back next year!

    Excellent experience

    August 3, 2015: Brendan said his favorite parts of the camp were the 5 on 5 games, meeting new people and staying in the dorms. He really enjoyed the staff and thought they were all nice and fun.
