Basketball Camp

The City of Independence hosts an annual basketball camp.  This is a four (4) half-day camp from Monday to Thursday and is usually held the fourth week in June in the gym at Summit View Middle School.  This camp is open to children ages 6 to 13 years old.  The instructors are current and former college basketball players and high school coaches.  Each camper will receive a t-shirt.  Daily awards will be given for each age group and for various competitions.  Registration is required and forms will be available in mid-May.  Early registration and multiple sibling discounts are available.

The purpose of this camp is to give each participant the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of the game and to play in a game situation.  All campers are given an equal amount of time to learn the skills and participate in the games.  Campers are grouped according to age and ability.  By exposing campers to enthusiastic instruction and good competition, our staff hopes to instill a desire in you to work and strive to become a better basketball player.
