“I didn’t get a chance to email after my son went to camp a few weeks ago, but we were very happy with the camp, especially the positive lessons about sportsmanship everyday.  He had a great time, it was very professionally run, and considering how much working parents live and die by good summer camps, you’ve really outdone yourself here in Hampton Roads.

We will be back next year!”

Virginia Wesleyan's Basketball camps are awesome!  Coach Macedo, staff, and camp coaches provide a great basketball experience and create a great environment for children of all ages to learn the fundamentals of the game and have fun doing it.  I have been sending my sons to camp for the past 6 years and they can't get enough of it. If you want your child to have the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of the game in an exciting, safe, family oriented environment, I would highly recommend Virginia Wesleyan's Basketball Camp!

Miscellaneous Information

What if I have to cancel a camp? 
We do not offer refunds on cancelled campers, just a future camp credit if you decide to cancel, but we do have what is called "Cancellation Protection". We offer basic Cancellation Protection to allow participants some peace of mind in case plans change. This allows us to keep our prices low and provide the best service possible. Due at the time of registration, Cancellation Protection entitles you to a full refund of camp fees should you cancel your registration more than 14 days prior to the start of an overnight camp, and 7 days prior to the start of a day camp. If you cancel within 14 or 7 days of the start of your session, we will give you a camp credit for all money paid. The credit is valid for three years from camp date. Credit with insurance is transferable to family members or friends, and good toward a future camp.

My kids are crazy about this camp. We look forward to it every year. It's a terrific way to make friends, work on skills and learn about competition and teamwork.

Coach Macedo's philosophy of the sport really comes through to the kids. This camp is one of our favorite things about summer!
