May 22 Update: Overnight and Father & Son Camps sold out

LEXINGTON, Ky. - The University of Kentucky Men's Basketball program is pleased to announce the dates and information for the 2012 John Calipari Father & Son Camp and Overnight Camp. 

Scheduled for Friday and Saturday June 15-16 (Father's Day Weekend) the John Calipari Father & Son Camp offers 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 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 Coach Calipari Overnight Basketball Camp is scheduled for June 17-20 (Sunday to Wednesday) and is open to boys ages 7-17. This camp offers four days of skills training, team games, individual competitions, and Division tournament. Campers will be pre-assigned to appropriate age/grade level divisions in which all skills work, competitions and games will take place.  Skills work will be taught by UK coaches, staff and current and former Wildcat players. Each camper will be assigned a team within their respective age groups. Complete camp itineraries, gym schedules, and Day Camper drop off and pick up will be included in the confirmation email sent to  parents prior to the start of camp, and parents are encouraged to visit any of the gym sites to watch their children participate in camp activities.

A limited number of spots are available for all camps and are based on a first-come, first-serve basis, with online registration (Father & Son Camp, Coach Calipari Overnight Basketball Camp) recommended as the fastest and most efficient form of registering campers. Both of the camps listed were sold out last summer, so early registration is encouraged to secure a spot.

Both 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.

For more information, interested parties or registered campers can call 859.257.9457 or 859.257.1916.
