Nike Basketball Camps, a division of US Sports Camps, the largest provider of sports camps in the world, has announced a new Minnesota basketball camp location for summer 2019. This girls basketball day camp will be held at Macalester College in St. Paul and will be directed by Head Women’s Basketball Coach Pam Findlay and her collegiate staff. Campers will train in the newly expanded Leonard Center Athletic Complex, home to the Scotts basketball and volleyball programs.
