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.

Extended Day Camper Daily Schedule: SUN 2pm-9pm, MON-TUES 9am-9pm, WED 9am-11am


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.


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.

    My favorite part was playing basketball all day.

    July 21, 2016: My favorite part of camp was being away from home (a college feel) and getting to play basketball all day while learning. It would be cool if the camp had an NBA star or a former player come in for a day to work with the campers.

    Coached by NWU players.

    July 21, 2016: I loved being coached by Nebraska Wesleyan's current players. My favorite parts were the shooting competitions and scrimmages. The main gym was excellent but the fieldhouse was hot.
