Overnight Camps

Stanford Basketball Overnight
High Potential Camps (
June 22-25)

Camp Purpose: The Stanford Men's Basketball Camp is designed to provide a safe, fun and instructional environment.  The campers will be drilled in the various fundamentals, which include footwork, shooting mechanics, ball handling, passing, movement without the ball, defensive principles, rebounding, sportsmanship and how to be good teammate.   The camp will also feature team competition, as all of the campers divided up into teams. There will also be various forms of 2 on 2, 3 on 3 and individual competitions.  On the final day, there will be an awards presentation honoring various campers for their efforts and performance. 


High Potential Overnight Camp

This camp session is recommended to 8th grade (as of Fall 2018) and high school basketball players that are at the intermediate to advanced level, seeking competitive sessions of basketball.  This camp consists of very intense sessions of games and instructions for athletes who aspire to play in high school and at the club level.

The High Potential Camp is targeted toward those individuals who are excelling on their High School, Club or AAU teams and wish to participate and learn about the college experience and what it takes to get there.


Overnight Camp

Live the Stanford Basketball Experience at the Stanford Overnight Camp.  Days are filled with skill development, competitive games, and game analysis.  Shooting competitions and 3 on 3 competition are a highlight of the overnight experience.

All campers stay on campus in the Stanford Dormitories (under strict staff supervision) and have meals in the student dining halls.

The Stanford Coaching Staff is on hand for the entire camp and is heavily involved in instruction, including coaching position breakdown sessions.

Commuter Camper:  

Campers can register as commuter campers for either camp.  A commuter camper participates in all activities with the camp, but does not eat breakfast with the camp and does not stay overnight in the dorms with the other campers.  Campers who are staying in a hotel with their parents or who live locally and do not want to stay in the dorm should think about this option.

What To Bring To Camp:

Please mark all belongings with name tags or indelible marking ink.  It is suggested that a list of belongings accompany each camper.  Please leave expensive watches and cameras at home.

Basketball Shoes and extra shoe laces
4 pairs of basketball shorts
6 pairs of athletic socks
6 tee shirts
Sweatshirt or light jacket
Laundry bag
Alarm clock
Toiletry articles (including foot and body powder)
Also: Each Camper is responsible for bringing his own LINENS & TOWELS - the dorm beds are Twin XL
Sheets or sleeping bag
Pillow Case
Bath Towels
Face Towels
Sunscreen - For possible session on outdoor courts


All overnight campers will stay on campus in the Stanford Dormitories under strict staff supervision.  All of our coaches are hired by Stanford University and go through background checks conducted by the Stanford University Human Resources Department.

Linens will not be provided.

Stanford University charges $185 for a lost room key.  If you lose your room key, a $145 charge will be posted to your credit card.  This is not a fee that the camp has any control, this is charged by the university who controls the dorms.


We will try to accommodate roommate requests received 30 days prior to the start of camp (NO EXCEPTIONS).  If a roommate is not requested, we will assign a roommate of approximately the same age whenever possible.  No changes will be made at registration.


Daily and Game Schedules are posted at the dorms and at Maples Pavilion.  Game schedules are subject to change, especially on the last day of camp.


Campers are placed on teams according to age, size and ability.  Our priority in forming teams is to have balanced competition.  Therefore, we do not honor team assignment requests.  In some cases, players are "traded" from the team assigned at registration to better balance the competition.


There is a qualified trainer on duty 24 hours a day in case of illness or injury.  The trainer will also administer prescribed medications if this service is requested at registration.

Camp Store:

The camp store offers snacks, drinks, and exclusive Stanford Basketball Camp merchandise.


Campers eat meals in the Student Dining Hall. A variety of selections are prepared for each meal. A vegetarian offering is provided for all meals. Commuter Camper tuition includes lunch and dinner.


TRANSPORTATION IS NOT PROVIDED BY THE CAMP TO OR FROM AIRPORTS. If your camper is flying in from San Jose Airport or San Francisco International Airport we recommend SuperShuttle 1-800-258-3826 or www.superschuttle.com 

Health Care:
