Our Jr. Wildcat Camp is available to all boys ages 6-14. Campers are grouped in leagues by age and ability. Campers work in small groups and go through skill stations to develop individual and team skills. They will play in camp competitions, and compete in games.
Bob McKillop’s Basketball Camp is located on the campus of Davidson College. The camp takes place in the Baker Sports Complex. The centerpiece of the Baker Sports Complex is the John M. Belk Arena, featuring a main varsity court with hardwood floor for basketball and volleyball. We also use our brand new courts in the Harry L. Vance Athletic Center that provides two practice courts for Davidson’s men’s and women’s basketball teams and the volleyball team.
Bob McKillop’s goal for his camps are to help develop the skills of all players and have fun at the same time. He and his staff’s emphasis is placed on the basic skills and techniques associated with the game of basketball. The mechanics and drills that are taught at our camps are used with our college players. We pride ourselves in providing the best possible learning experience for our campers. All players are placed in groups based on age and individual ability.
All registrations must take place online. We no longer offer mail in registration. Please register as soon as possible as camp fills up quickly. You will receive an email confirmation when your registration has been completed successfully.
