Camp Whatchamakeit (pronounced similar to ‘What you make it’) is a unique opportunity for male and female basketball players entering the 7th to 12th grade to enjoy a high energy diverse basketball camp experience that encompasses life and leadership skills, while having fun improving their basketball fundamentals.
Camp “W” is located on our 10 acre home and tree nursery property in a rural setting in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. It is located in a safe and relaxing environment located 10 minutes west of Ft. Collins, Colorado, which is an hour north of Denver. Each camp is 5 days, with campers arriving on Sunday afternoon and departing the following Friday afternoon.
Each session is age and gender specific and is open to all skill levels. Participation is limited to 20 players each week. The coach to player ratio is 1 coach for every 6 players, allowing us to provide personal attention to each player. In addition to the camp co-director there will be at least one other accredited coach and several former student-athletes who will act as counselors and group leaders for the campers.
Five “on court” practice days will each consist of several hours of instruction and competition focusing on all fundamental aspects of basketball. Special attention will be directed to helping improve the “off” hand of each player, their “basketball IQ”, court vision and “position specific” skills. Players will learn how they can practice effectively and efficiently by themselves.
A portion of each evening will be spent around a Bon fire exploring a non-denominational relationship with God, and developing healthy relations with family and friends. In addition there will be discussions of how to develop leadership skills and other “life” skills, including effective time management.
Every camp will include an hour of community service and an afternoon of adventure with each camper having a choice of white water rafting, horseback riding, mountain hiking and fly fishing for trout. The goal of Camp Whatchamakeit is to provide each player with a great LIFE, LEADERSHIP and BASKETBALL experience that leads to a lifelong memory of a week spent in Colorado with newfound friends.
