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.

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 has improved after attending this camp!
July 26, 2018: Griffin enjoyed being on a college campus with boys of mixed ages. He also was impressed with the amount of ball handling skills and feels he has improved after attending this camp. He wants to attend both weeks next summer and try the overnight camps.

Overall Great Experience
June 21, 2018: Henry can’t say enough great things about this camp. He played a basketball game the same night we picked him up from camp and said "My game wouldn’t have been as good if I didn’t go to camp!” He learns so much and has an overall great experience. He wishes it was a longer week. Thanks coaches you guys did an awesome job!
— Hilary E. Parent
Provided a safe and supportive enviornment!
June 21, 2018: I believe that my son learned and improved his basketball skills. It was important to me that he feel comfortable in the camp, and not overwhelmed by more skilled campers. I do believe the camp staff did a good job at recognizing more skilled and/or experienced players, from those that were still learning the game and basic fundamentals. The Webster University coaching staff and players were great with the kids, and provided a safe and supportive environment.
— Chad P. Parent
The coaching staff was very helpful
July 29, 2017: The coaching staff was very helpful in picking out bad habits and tendencies I had and helped me fix them to become a more advanced player. my highlights of camp were the Friendships I made and overall how the camp changed my perspective on the game of basketball for the better.
— Brendel M. Camper
I go to all the college basketball camps in St. Louis and this is my favorite!
June 22, 2017: I liked to play the game where we did the Oakland shoot...where you backed up each time you made a shot and you were out of you missed and you stayed in if you made it and then someone won the round! Memorable experiences: meet your new coaches and making new friends. I go to all the college basketball camps in St. Louis and this is my favorite one because it's cool that you have the option to sleep away..

We can't say enough about the extraordinary coaches!
June 22, 2017: We can't say enough about the extraordinary coaches! Everyone was so friendly and helpful! Ryan loved it!

My son loves this basketball camp FAR above all the others.
July 13, 2016: My son had a blast! He loves this basketball camp FAR above all the others he's done over the years. He liked that the groups for instructor were small, the quality of the staff and the attention to the game of basketball. All of the staff acted like they wanted to be there...again, different than most camps he's attended. He loved staying overnight, it was a lot of fun for him and he says it was his favorite part about camp.
— Katie S. Parent
The staff were professional, engaging, and took the time to know each player.
June 22, 2016: Great job by the entire staff. I saw an engaged staff who really worked to ensure that each player learned, worked hard, but most importantly enjoyed themselves. My son really enjoyed the positivity. The Head Coach seemed to take the time to know each player. He and his staff were very professional and engaging.
— Mark L. Parent
A class act!
June 22, 2016: Coach Bunch is a class act! I can't wait for next summer!
— Matthew A. Camper
Well balanced amount of work, play, and instruction.
June 23, 2016: My son loved to be able to play the game he loved with others who seemed to love it just as much and be instructed and coach by a staff who felt the same as well. Well balanced amount of work, play, and instruction. There was a lot of play time against others that were of equal talent or better. This helped my son improve his game.
— Nina M. Parent
A camp focused on character and kindness.
June 23, 2016: The Director was impressive in the fact that he focused on skill development but put a higher focus on character and kindness.
— Scott. H. Parent
I really liked the way Coach Bunch ran camp.
June 24, 2016: Coach Bunch and the other coaches were great to work with. I really liked the way that Coach Bunch ran the camp. The drills were good, the gym facilities were excellent, and the games were very fun. I really liked playing in the 5 on 5 games and some of the drills that we did. I am thankful to Coach Bunch and his staff for provided a great camp to all of the kids that attended.
— Nathan R. Camper
Coach Bunch is the perfect mentor.
July 27, 2016: Coach Bunch took the time to check in with me personally and with my son after a rough first night. He was the perfect coach and mentor for the kids.

I had a great time at the Nike Webster University camp!
I had a great time at the Nike Webster University camp! I really enjoyed all of the shooting games, meeting new friends who share my passion for basketball. I also had a great dorm experience. I look forward to attending again next year.
— Ray A. Camper
My individual game has improved. I have played basketball mostly as a post player, but here I worked on my ball handling and I got a chance to play against older competition as a guard boosting my confidence.
My boy is 9 and he loved staying at the dorm at Webster University. It was his first time at a camp overnight and he really enjoyed the atmosphere.
Coach Unch is awesome
Coach unch is awesome- he cares about the players, and made sure everyone had fun while learning basketball.
Great learning experience
It was a really good learning experience with plenty of one on one instructions. The directors are really good. I loved the scrimmaging. I'd go back.
My game has improved
I really loved the Nike camp. I made friends, had lots of fun, and learned so much. My high school coach tells me that my game has improved tremendously. Thank you all so much.
My son's first sleep away camp was a success
This was my sons first "sleep away" camp…I don’t know who was more nervous him or I . but after the first hour of check in and him getting settled he was fine…However after my first night of anguish I survived..Every night that he called he was very excited to tell me everything they did
I was a little hesitant about sending him to camp as he has not been to an overnight camp before, but he needed to start sometime. He is 9 years old and had a great time...so great in fact that he didn't call home 1 time during the camp! He loved the swim party, the food, playing basketball all day and staying in the dorms at Webster University. He had such a great time he asked if he could go back next month! I think we'll be sending him again next year.
After the 3 days of camp, I am a better basketball player.
After the 3 days of camp, I am a better basketball player. They teach you lots of things that improve your game.
I want to go back next year
I like the expierence of staying at dorms and the faculty helped a lot with campers who needed help specfics. I really want to go back next year.
He wished it was longer.
My grandson enjoyed the camp very much and learned a lot. He said he wished it was longer.
