Basketball Camp

Players in Grades 4-8 • One Session Only

August 11th – 14th, 2022

Great food, clean Northwoods air, and a tremendous atmosphere for living certainly play a role in the success of our camp. But the real key to the success at Horseshoe Basketball Camp is the program. An excellent blend of competition, instruction and fun, like no other camp we know. You’ll get your share of strenuous competition with the other athletes like yourself. And you’ll also get plenty of invaluable, one-on-one instruction in technique and skills. You’ll leave the camp with confidence. Our goal is to help you become the best basketball player you’re capable of being and nothing less. You provide the effort, we’ll provide the training. Our player – coach ratio is 7 to 1 which will provide you with a great deal of individual attention.

Northwoods Living A Unique Experience

The ideal setting for a week of basketball instruction and competition. Nestled in the lake and forest country of Northern Wisconsin, Horseshoe Basketball Camp affords the proper atmosphere for every camper to get the absolute maximum out of his week long experience.

The Facilities Are Excellent

Horseshoe, rich in tradition since the 1930s, boasts one of the finest facilities in the country. All of our facilities from the courts to the cabins and bathrooms are new, clean, and up to date.

Off The Court Activities

Swimming, water-skiing, tubing, trampball, volleyball, tennis, fishing, archery and riflery are some of the leisure time activities to be enjoyed at Camp Horseshoe.

Daily Schedule Is Performance Planned

A typical day at camp will start with breakfast, followed by specific instruction and competition. The same procedure follows the post lunch and rest period. There will be two regulation full court games for every camper each day. There will also be ample time for off-court leisure activities.
