Not only did he think they were competitive, but he also thought they were very fun!
July 23, 2021: Logan enjoyed the competitions. Not only did he think they were competitive, but he also thought they were very fun! The campers were rewarded with small gifts from the competitions. Logan also really appreciated the end when they received player evaluation sheets filled out by the coaches and also awards when the camp was over. Logan got "Camper of the Week" and received a cool looking Webster University basketball jersey.

Coaches are friendly
June 23, 2019: This is Henry's fourth year at camp. He likes it so much that he wants to do another session next month.

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..
— Henry E., Camper
We can't say enough about the extraordinary coaches!

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

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

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.
