Chicago Bulls Basketball Camp
Need To Know Info
The Chicago Bulls/Sox Academy provide year-round camps, clinics, private lessons and strength training to thousands of kids every year.
The program is called the Bulls/Sox because campers can sign up to do a basketball/baseball camp combo. The dual sport camp is one of a kind. It’s definitely worth a look if your son or daughter likes to play basketball and baseball.
There are three different locations where the year-round basketball training is held: Lisle, La Grange, and Glen Ellyn. Each city has slightly different programs available. You’ll have to check out your city on the Bulls camp site for specifics on each location.
If you don’t live in those cities don’t worry. There are still Chicago Bulls summer basketball camps held throughout Chicagoland. New locations are added all the time.
The Bulls take pride in the quality of their instructors. The Bulls Basketball Academy coaching staff has learned directly from the Chicago Bulls staff. If you want to be the best, you have to train with the best!
The summer camp also has a low camper to instructor ratio at 10:1. So for every 1 instructor there will only be 10 campers or less. They cap participation so your son or daughter will be able to get more individual attention.
Here’s a great behind the scenes look at the basketball FUNdamentals camp:
Campers will get lots of swag from the summer camp:
- EXCLUSIVE United Center experience (with one guest)
- Q&A with a current or former Bulls player
- 4 ticket vouchers for a White Sox game
- Chicago Bulls duffle bag
- Chicago Bulls T-shirt
- Chicago Bulls Basketball
- Camp graduation certificate
- Evaluation report
The Skills Competition is something cool no other NBA team does except the Bulls.
For every camp, the top three campers in each skills contest will compete on the floor of the United Center!
The skills competition drills will be the same used by college scouts looking for high school players. The competition is good practice for future ambitions!
Early Bird Pricing: Sign up before Mat 1st and get discount on all summer camps!
If you can’t attend a summer camp this year, consider signing up for private basketball lessons. Private lessons are also a great way to get that extra edge for the school or travel team tryouts.
Held in Lisle, the private lessons are with high quality, hand selected instructors. There is a wide variety of lesson packages available depending on the age and skill level of the student.
The Bulls Academy is so dedicated to maintaining professional standards, all coaches are required to participate in an annual process of certification. This ensures all coaches are up-to-date with the latest training techniques.

Strength and Conditioning
Another unique program at the Bulls/Sox Academy is the Strength and Conditioning training. They provide young athletes with an athletic foundation that can be applied in any sport.

The Final Word
The Bulls have much more to provide young athletes than just summer camps. Over the years their summer camp has have helped over 25,000 boys and girls develop essential basketball skills.
Whatever program you decide doing, I don’t think you can go wrong with the Bulls/Sox Academy.
I’ll leave you with a glowing testimonial from the Bulls Academy:
“I have had my kids in many camps and class and really can tell when coaches and teachers go the extra step to make kids feel confident and comfortable. The team of coaches at last week’s Bulls camp definitely did that. Jake will continue to benefit from this really fun and positive experience even after the week is done!!” – Amie Krummick
