LEXINGTON, Ky. – The University of Kentucky Men’s Basketball program is pleased to announce the dates and information for the 2013 John Calipari Overnight Camp.
The John Calipari Overnight Basketball Camp is scheduled for June 16-19 (Sunday to Wednesday) and is open to boys ages 7-17.
To register as an overnight camper and stay in a dorm room for this year’s Overnight Camp, participants MUST be 12 years of age prior to the first day of camp (6/16/13). Campers below the age of 12 MUST register and participate as a Day Camper/Commuter, per University of Kentucky Athletics Department policy.
There are a limited number of spots available and all camps are based on a first-come, first-serve basis, with online registration (http://www.ukathletics.com/camps/) recommended as the fastest and most efficient form of registering campers. All previously listed camps were SOLD OUT the last two summers, so early registration is encouraged to secure a spot.
The overnight camp offers four days of skills training, team games, individual competitions and a division tournament. Campers will be pre-assigned to appropriate age/grade level divisions in which all skills work, competitions and games will take place. Skills work will be taught by UK coaches and staff, along with current and former Wildcat players. Each camper will be assigned a team within their respective age groups. Complete camp itineraries, gym schedules, and Day Camper drop-off and pick-up information will be included in the confirmation email sent to parents prior to the start of camp.
Parents are encouraged to visit any of the gym sites to watch their children participate in camp activities.
The cost of the camp is $430 for overnight campers and $350 for day campers.
Overnight Camp Registration will take place Sunday, June 16 on the third floor of the Common’s Market, located within the Kirwan-Blanding Dorm Complex on UK’s campus. Overnight Camper registration will be from 1-4 p.m. Day camper registration will be held at a separate location within the Common’s Market from 3-4 p.m.
Once camp registration is complete participants will receive a confirmation email, with details of necessary paper work needed (physical, insurance, and consent), along with a list of items campers will need to bring for camp. Any camp related questions can be called into the men’s basketball camp line at 859-257-9457 or 859-257-1916.
