2016 Basketball Camps in Colorado
Folks in Colorado have a ton of options for basketball camps.
The first thing that jumped out at me is the number of options College & Universities offer youth players. You won’t just find the classic day/overnight camp, but also shooting, “little dribbler” and elite camps.
The Local and National camps equally offer solid instruction. Can’t go wrong with many of the camps below!
Pro Tip: Don’t forget to see if any of the camps have discounts available.
Discounts could be for signing up early, signing up for multiple camps, and signing up a sibling.

National & Celebrity Camps in Colorado
A National Basketball camp is a term I use for camps that have locations in multiple states.
A popular National camp in Colorado is Breakthrough Basketball.
Breakthrough caps participation on all their camps. Which is great because it ensures quality instruction with a low camper-to-coach ratio.
The bad news is that they tend to sell out. Don’t wait around to sign up!
Breakthrough offers several specialty camps like a Shooting camp, Attack & Counter camp, and Ballhadling & Decision Making camp.
Midwest Elite Basketball is a unique camp option I want to mention. They’re what’s called a Satellite camp.
How a Satellite camps works is you find the gym, get the camp participants, and they will come to you to host the camp!
This works really well for high school teams, and can also be great for an AAU team or anyone who knows a group of kids that want to learn basketball!
Looking for an Elite camp? Then you need to check out PGC Basketball.
PGC is the one of the best camps to attend to take a players game to the next level. They teach a player how to think the game.
PGC Basketball is not just about skills, but also being a leader, and running the “basketball show” on the court. After attending this camp, a player’s basketball IQ will increase dramatically.

U.S. Air Force Academy bball camp states they will focus on developing song individual fundamentals and unselfish team play.
Pro Tip: The most popular gripe I hear from parents about basketball camps is the selfish team play. Often, the experienced players can ball hog and take all the shots at camp.
If your son or daughter is just learning the game, look for camps that emphasize unselfish play.
Also, don’t overlook the smaller colleges and universities! They can provide a quality learning experience.
For example, Colorado School of Mines located in Golden offers “Little Digger” camps, Super Competition camps for college prospects, and Team camps.
