The Youth Camp will provide quality instruction with an emphasis on individual skill development by the George Fox coaching staff, as well as current and former collegiate players.  High-quality competitive action will include various contests such as a "Hot Shot" competition, free throw and three-point competition, and 3-on-3 tournaments.  Each camper will receive a camp T-shirt and basketball, a camp photo, and a certificate with the coaches' evaluation.

The Elite Camp is designed to provide position-specific individual skill development and collegiate-level scheme instruction and implementation from the Bruin coaching staff.  Game scenarios and situation work will be taught, and campers will apply what they have learned in competitive 5-on-5 games.  Players attending the Elite Camps should be high-level varsity athletes capable of playing at the collegiate level.
