The Armstrong Men’s Basketball staff will direct the camp with the help of current Pirate players. All staff members are required to have background checks.
Due to the success of last year’s camp, the cafeteria on campus has changed its summer policy. If we reach a certain amount of campers, lunch will be eaten at Armstrong’s on-campus dining facility, The Galley. The Galley is Armstrong’s an all-u-care to eat resident dining hall that offers a wide selection of dining options. If we do not reach the set number, then alternate arrangements will be made.
WHAT TO BRING:
*Be sure to wear comfortable clothing that is basketball appropriate with socks and basketball shoes.
