Online Registration

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Due to the overwhelming popularity of our annual camps, the University of Kentucky Men's Basketball program is pleased to announce three separate sessions of the 2014 John Calipari Father & Son Camps.

A limited number of spots are available for all camps and are based on a first-come, first-serve basis, with online registration recommended as the fastest and most efficient form of registering campers. All of the camps listed were SOLD OUT the last three summers, so early online registration is encouraged to secure a spot.

All three camps will be held on the University of Kentucky campus. Buses will be provided to transport campers to all of the basketball facilities. Full-time athletic trainers will be stationed at each site throughout the duration of the camp, along with UK basketball staff members in all dorms to accommodate any questions or concerns campers may have. It is our goal to ensure a safe and fun environment, which provides all campers the opportunity to maximize their Kentucky Basketball experience. 

The John Calipari Father & Son Camp Session 1 is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, June 6-7

SOLD OUT - The John Calipari Father & Son Camp Session 2 is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, June 13-14 (Father's Day weekend)

The John Calipari Father & Son Camp Session 3 is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, June 20-21

Traditionally our most popular camp, the 2014 Father & Son Camps will be split into three separate summer sessions. These weekend camps offer a unique father/son bonding experience that only Kentucky Basketball can provide. This year's father and son participants will be treated to instruction from the UK coaches, staff, along with current and former Wildcat players through detailed skill work and competitions in the best facilities in all of college basketball. Father and son teams will compete with fellow campers of appropriate age groups (based on son's age/grade level) in competitions that incorporate skills learned throughout the camp. The skill work is designed to give both father and son drills and techniques to take home and continue working on together. This camp is open to all fathers and sons ages 6-17, regardless of previous basketball experience.

The COMMUTER cost of the camp is $165 per individual and includes:

  • Three meals (including dinner on Friday during registration)
  • Camp T-shirt
  • Three Sessions of instruction and competitions
  • Photo and autograph opportunities with Coach Calipari, UK staff and players

The OVERNIGHT cost of the camp is $185 per individual and includes:

  • ALL ITEMS LISTED ABOVE plus the supervised dorm room for one night
