Basketball Camp for 2021 has been cancelled so that ALL of our other camps can happen despite COVID.
Bald Eagle Basketball Camp is for 3rd-8th graders and aims to build complete players who understand the importance of each skill required to be successful on the basketball court, not just guard or post skills. We aspire to increase the intrinsic motivation of each camper, so that they will strive to be their very best well beyond the basketball court. Campers will get high level coaching on all the key fundamentals and concepts in order to become a complete player. We want campers to walk away feeling better about themselves and knowing that their decisions and attitude dictate where they end up as a player, and more importantly as a person.
At Bald Eagle Basketball Camp we teach campers the skills to become “complete basketball players”, working on each part of their game, and understanding the myriad of roles that contribute to a teams success. Our camp is suited for all level players from beginner to advanced and we masterfully manage match-ups so that each player is challenged yet successful.
Campers remain in the Basketball Camp program the entire morning as well as right after lunch and at the last segment of the day. They are led by our Professional Basketball Director and a multitude of highly experienced coaches who each take pride in providing a positive experience for all players.
Coach Bob, the camp founder, designs this camp from his experiences as a college player, college asst. coach, high school Varsity Head Coach, National Junior Basketball Board Member, Positive Coaching Alliance Trainer, youth coach (his own kids!), 25 years of experience teaching high school along with a Masters in Special Ed and credential in PE. The programming is outstanding and coaching is top-shelf. This masterfully well thought out camp design will have kids improving dramatically, growing their confidence, feeling empowered and loving basketball.
One element of our Basketball Camp that has it selling out every week is our "added feature" you won't find anywhere except Bald Eagle. Most basketball camps exhaust and burnout the kids with SIX hours of basketball. Our unique formula gives them a break from hoop for about an hour in the afternoon.
Since we have 2 other camps that are going on at the same location, Non-Traditional Multi Sports and Sports Leadership, we have options other camps don't. In the afternoon, all 3 camps come together in the afternoon for our famed GO ZONE Free Choice Period. Basketball Campers get the best of all worlds, because they get a break from basketball each day to enjoy other summer camp fun, but since we do have some basketball junkies, one of the free choice stations is ALWAYS basketball so they can play all day if they want.
The GO ZONE Free Choice periods are open to every camper on campus, and it's a time for all campers to come together, so it has a FUN family feel. Kids love to CHOOSE what fun summer activity they want to enjoy (swimming*, bouncy house, ga-ga ball pit, water games, dodgeball, whiffle ball, arts & crafts, yoga/dance, soccer, kickball, hockey, indoor bottom ball, Zaber sword games, ping pong, foosball, air hockey, etc.) and GO to that ZONE! It's the perfect formula because too many hours of basketball can get daunting so campers LOVE having a semi-structured break to go "just have fun" and choose their own plan for an hour each day. It is summer after all!
