Each session will involve both skill development and the opportunity to compete in 5 vs. 5 games against other participants, with an emphasis on team play.
This Camp is also an excellent opportunity to get a feel for the life of a Brown Basketball player. Campers will stay in dorms, eat in cafeterias, and play in the Pizzitola Sports Center, all located on Brown's campus just outside downtown Providence. This Camp is open to any and all high school boys grades 9 though 12.
The Brown Bear Basketball Day Camp, held August 12 through August 15, is recommended for those wanting to learn the game of basketball while having fun. This Camp will focus on teaching the fundamentals of the game and then incorporating these concepts into organized games, with an emphasis on teamwork. Instruction on how to properly dribble, pass, and shoot will be provided, followed by daily contests and 5 vs. 5 competitions. Each Camper will also receive a Brown Basketball t-shirt as well as a camp basketball. This Camp is open to both boys and girls of all skill levels and experience.
