Complete the online application. The only way to reserve a spot is to register online and complete the information. Our day camps will sell out.

What is the cancellation/refund policy?

We are usually able to refund your camp registration costs if you have a scheduling conflict or other matter arise. However, we will no longer be able to provide any refunds after May 18 (one month prior to the start of camp).

What time is check-in?

On the first day of camp, (June 18 for Session I & June 20 for Session II), check-in will begin at 8 a.m. just inside the main entrance to John Paul Jones Arena. On the days following (June 19 & 21), campers may begin to arrive at 8:30 a.m. Camp will begin each day promptly at 9 a.m. on the main floor and end there at 4 p.m. Parking is free in the main surface lot in front of John Paul Jones Arena on the days of camp. Parents are welcome to stay at watch and any point during camp, except during the lunch hour. (We will not have food available to parents).

What should I bring?

This year, all campers will need to bring the two required medical forms as well as a front/back copy of their insurance information, with them to check-in on the first day of camp; they should no longer be sent in ahead of time. These forms will be sent in your confirmation e-mail upon completed registration. Please provide the best e-mail address for receiving camp information when you register.

Campers should dress comfortably each day in shorts, t-shirt and proper basketball or tennis shoes. Water will be provided. You are also encouraged to bring a water bottle or sports drink if you would like. Lunch is provided each day; however you are also encouraged to bring money to use for snacks at the camp store. All food and drink items in the camp store sell for $1.

What is included in my camp fee?

Do you have any overnight camps?

No, we do not have any overnight camps available. The day camp is the only camp that we hold for boys ages 7-17 (up to rising 12th graders). If you are traveling from out of town and need lodging, we recommend visiting the lodging page at visitcharlottesville.org. The Inn at Darden, Holiday Inn on Emmett Street, Hyatt Place and English Inn are all located within 2 miles of John Paul Jones Arena, and many others are a short distance as well.

What kind of medical care is available?

Certified athletic trainers are on site throughout camp. Please be sure to include any information that will be important for them to know when filling out your son’s medical history form. If medication needs to be given, or there is a special circumstance our medical staff needs to be aware of, you will be able to meet with an athletic trainer the morning of check-in.

What if my son needs to leave early?

All campers are expected to stay on the premises for the duration of camp and will not be able to leave for any reason. If you have a special situation where your son will arrive late or will need to be picked up early, please let our staff know so proper arrangements can be made.

What if my son has a food allergy?

Lunch is provided each day and we will try our best to accommodate your son’s dietary needs. Many kids with severe food allergies bring their own lunch and that is fine. In the past, our camp lunches have included Chick-Fil-A sandwiches and pizza.

Are girls able to attend camp?

Because our program is the Virginia men’s program, we hold camps and clinics for boys. We encourage any girls who are interested in Virginia basketball to attend one of Joanne Boyle’s basketball camps. Her camp website is: http://www.joanneboylebasketballcamps.com

I have a question not addressed on this page.
