San Domenico has invested in a bus service to campus for an additional cost of $90, you can choose from the following routes:
Northern Marin: Serves families in Novato, Terra Linda, San Rafael
Southern Marin: Serves families in Mill Valley, Greenbrae, Ross, and San Anselmo
Transportation is offered for each week of the Nike Basketball Camp at San Domenico School. Buses depart San Domenico at 4:15, so they get extra pool time in the afternoon! Using the link below, select the week of transportation matching the week of camp and then add to cart and check out.
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.

Thank you for a great experience.
July 24, 2018: Michael was motivated to go each day and looked forward to what he'd learn. Of course he enjoyed playing games in the afternoon, but also appreciated the skill development. Our son has attended other Marin camps, and this is the only one he ever really felt that coaches truly know what they are talking about and can connect athletically with kids. This is the only basketball camp in Marin our son ever wants to go to, and he enjoys every moment. Thank you for a great experience.
