The good and the bad Jun 22, 2012
reviewer: Jennifer Elgin from Ashburn, VA
This is a great camp to learn basketball skills. It seemed like the coaching was really good and the kids learned alot. Drop off etc. was a breeze - very well organized. This camp is CROWDED. Probably 500 boys at a time? There is a deplorable lack of information from the camp about what to bring. Make sure you send sunscreen, as the kids play outside (on the tennis courts) ALOT. They should bring lots of water/gatorade and have a sack pac to carry them back and forth, little water available on courts. You should also throw in a light jacket with a hood in case of rain - they have to walk back and forth from dorms, courts, dining hall etc. Pool time is non-existent - they are all scheduled at the same time and the pool is dangerously crowded. There is very little supervision - the kids are expected to get themselves from place to place, and they can be wandering around alone on campus. Fine if your kids are in high school, not so much if they are younger. Send something for them to do at night (ideas - video games, playing cards, computers, movies, etc.) - there are NO activities for them in the dorms or outside the dorms. If you send electronics, I got the feeling that stealing is rampant (my son had his sac pack stolen from the dining hall and they talked alot about stealing) so make sure the kids know to keep their expensive belongings hidden in drawers in their locked rooms when not in use. There is wifi but it is locked. Send a trashbag - no trashcans in the dorm rooms. Shower shoes are a must. Not a bad idea to send a roll of paper towels for use as plates, for microwave, etc. On pickup day, there is no set pick up time. Kids are leaving at all hours.
