Q: Where will my child sleep?
A: Your child will sleep in a dorm on campus. They will be paired up with the same gendered athlete unless you otherwise note that you would like your child to room with a friend. After you sign up and pay to reserve your spot and you want your child to room with a friend, please email email@example.com and we'll make a note on his/her record.
Q: Can my child share a room with a friend?
A: Yes. After you sign up and pay to reserve your spot and you want your child to room with a friend, email us.
Q: Are boys and girls in the same dorms?
A: No, they will be separated

Q: I will be sending my child to the camp by plane, how do we handle this?
A: We CAN NOT pick up or drop off unaccompanied minors at the airport.
Q: Will my child miss out on not attending the overnight sessions?
A: They will not miss out on any basketball related activities. They will miss out on some fun camp bonding and after basketball activities.
Q: Will my child be with kids in his/her age group?
A: Yes. We break out the campers by age group and gender. There may be a couple baskets that have a mix but we'll do our best to put any advanced athlete in an older age group or vice versa. The bulk of the camp is individual skill drills to make you a better player, so that doesn't matter much anyways until we get to competitive play.

A: If you have any questions, don't hesitate to email us or request a phone call.
