Camp Information

AGE REQUIREMENTS:

All campers must be at least nine years old or entering the fourth grade in September 2018 to attend camp.  According to NCAA regulations, boys who have graduated high school and are about to enter college in the fall of 2018 may attend the Kevin Ollie Basketball Camp.

REGISTRATION:

REGISTRATION/CHECK-IN:  Registration for all campers will take place at Gampel Pavilion on Sunday, June 24th from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Camp begins promptly at 2:30 p.m. Please note is camp is  4 days and 3 nights. At registration, you will check-in, receive your team assignment, room assignment and room key, leave money for the Canteen/Camp Store, leave any Medication Authorization forms with the camp medical staff, pay any outstanding balances and leave any outstanding camp forms with the camp administrators and pick up a sheet with emergency camp phone numbers.  After registering at Gampel, you should move into your assigned room in the dormitories.

Please note – NO LUNCH WILL BE SERVED ON THE FIRST DAY OF CAMP

ROOM KEY DEPOSIT: The $100 room key deposit will be due at registration for all overnight campers and should be made out ahead of time to: “Kevin Ollie Basketball Camp.”  This deposit will be returned to campers provided that their room key is turned in at the conclusion of their session of camp.

CANTEEN: We have a camp store (Canteen/Camp Store) that is available to all of our campers.  We DO NOT encourage campers to carry any cash.  We ask that parents make a cash deposit into the canteen at registration.  Your son then charges against the amount all week.  Following the awards ceremony on the last day of camp, we refund the money that your son has not spent.  At the camp store we sell t-shirts, practice jerseys, shorts, pizza, snacks, and drinks.

COMMUTERS: All commuters will check in at a separate Day Camper Table.  At that table campers will receive their meal card, leave money for the canteen and get instructions on drop-off and pick-up times for each day. Other than the first day of camp – drop-off time is between 8:30 – 9:00 a.m. at Gampel Pavillion. The commuter coordinator will be there each morning to welcome your camper. Pick up times will vary depending on the league your camper is in – the commuter coordinator will have that information.  All commuters have the option to stay through the evening session.  If they so choose, they can either purchase dinner in the dining hall ($15.00) or leave during the dinner break and return for the evening session.  All plans should be worked out with the commuter coordinator.

Please note – NO LUNCH WILL BE SERVED ON THE FIRST DAY OF CAMP
