Day Camp or Junior Camp?
If your child is going into third grade, you have the option of choosing between our Day and Junior Camps. If your child is not yet able to easily shoot on a full height (10') basket and does not have the attention span to make it through a four hour camp, they will have a much better experience in the Junior Camp. Typically, only advanced third graders who are already playing in leagues utilizing ten foot baskets should enroll in the Day Camps.
