The Red Auerbach Basketball School for boys was established in 1960. Jerry Volk, whose son would later become the Celtics General Manager under Red, had operated a summer camp in Marshfield, Massachusetts for several years. Red met Jerry at the camp and, with a handshake, the basketball school was born.
In the early days, it was as much a training facility for the Celtics as it was a camp for kids.The camp has evolved from those early years of hot-top courts, 18 kids, rustic cabins and cold showers to 6 world-class indoor courts, a fantastic dining hall and comfortable, air conditioned dorm living. After our 50th year celebration in 2010, we are even more committed to starting a new tradition of campers that are better determined to work hard, play hard and do what it takes to become a better basketball player!
