Camp Quick Glance

Toronto Raptors Basketball Camp

Need To Know Raptors Camp Info

The Toronto Raptors Basketball Camp, also called the Basketball Academy, has two different programs hosted in late July. A morning and afternoon camp session.

The morning session is for younger campers and the afternoon is for older campers only.

Both sessions will be held at Humber College North Campus.

The Raptors have a great participant package for every camper. It includes a Raptors jersey and shorts, pair of tix to a Raptors home game, an autographed team photo, and much more.

They have the best camp swag out of any  NBA team! See the full list below.


 

A few more cool things I noticed about the camp.

If you’re a Canadian citizen, the cost of the camp may qualify for The Children’s Fitness Tax Credit.

Save money on taxes by sending your kid to basketball camp? Sounds good to me!

Consider buying medical refund insurance. I’ve never heard of it before the Raptors camp. But, you can pay 3% of camp tuition to get a refund of the camp if the camper is injured.

It may be a good idea to purchase if your camper was hurt recently and may re-injure themselves before camp. The refund does require a medical note from the camper’s physician.

If you can’t attend the summer basketball camp, the Raptors also have several clinics and a Learn To Dribble program.

Basketball Clinics

In addition to the basketball camps, the Raptors hold one-day basketball skills clinics throughout the year.

All clinics are held in the Air Canada Centre in downtown Toronto.

Each clinic has a theme. Prior themes include, Shooting, Girls Only, All Skills, Holiday, and Guard Skills.

Every clinic has Raptors players attend too. Kyle Lowry, Demar Derozan, and Amir Johnson have stopped by previous camps!

Learn To Dribble

The Learn To Dribble program is a 4-week program where Raptors coaches visit Elementary schools in the greater Toronto area to teach the basics of basketball.

Last year Learn To Dribble reached over 1,000 kids!

Check out the Video describing the program and where to sign up if interested.

Toronto Raptors Basketball Camp Wrap Up

If your son or daughter is an avid Raptors fan they will really enjoy this camp.

Raptors personalities attend every day of the camp. And the camp swag is the best I’ve seen of any NBA camp.

If you can’t attend the summer camp definitely check out the clinics. It may be worth it to go to both just to meet the different Raptors players!
