New Jersey Basketball Camps 2015
The Garden State has great training programs for youth basketball players. Summer is the most popular time for attending camp, but that’s not the only time to be improving basketball skills!
In New Jersey there’s basketball programs and instructors who offer training during Winter and Spring vacation, weekend clinics, and weeknight training
Some instructors will come to your local gym to train your son or daughter and their friends.
Pro tip: I saw several camps in NJ that offer camp discounts. Don’t overlook an opportunity to save some cash!
Examples of camp discounts include signing up early, going to multiple camp sessions, and signing up with a sibling.
National & Celebrity Camps
A National basketball camp is a term I use for basketball camps that have locations in multiple states.
Breakthrough Basketball and Nike Basketball are both National camps that have locations in New Jersey.
If you’re looking for more specialized training for your son or daughter, I would recommend Breakthrough Basketball. They offer camps such as, an offensive Attack & Counter camp, Ballhandeling & Shooting camp, and general Youth Skills.
Overall, Nike Basketball has we’ll run camps. I recommend reading the Camp Director’s bio to ensure someone experienced isrunning the camp. Honestly, haven’t heard anything negative about their camps.
The Philadelphia 76ers and New York Knicks host camps in northern New Jersey.
Unfortunately, neither NBA team can guarantee a pro player will be at the camp. However, the camps will have a Sixers and Knicks theme, so if your son or daughter is a huge fan, it may be perfect for them!
Camps Local to New Jersey
On their website, Hoop Heaven says they’re “New Jersey’s Basketball Mecca”. From everything I’ve looked at in New Jersey, it’s the truth!
Located in Whippany, Bridgewater, and Waldwick, Hoop Heaven offers unique camp programs.
You can choose from camps that have basic fundamental training, a NBA Pro Player camp that features current and former NBA players, and AAU camp that features AAU coaches from around the county that get players “to the next level”.
The New Jersey Basketball Academy has several locations in Greater Verona and provides guaranteed results.
Several of the summer camps are hosted by Tim Capstraw, who is the current radio analyst for the Brooklyn Nets. Tim was Division 1 head coach for 10 years and has over 25 years as a basketball camp director!

College and University Camps in NJ
Princeton University Tigers have several great programs for both boys and girls.
Choose from the traditional college camp like the day camp or overnight camp.
The Tigers also offer several Elite camps where players can work closely with the Princeton Head Coach and the staff. The Elite camp resembles the atmosphere of a high level-college practice.
Pro Tip: Colleges often use their Elite Camps as a recruiting tool.
If your son or daughter has ambitions to play in college hit up all the Elite Camps you can. Especially the smaller Colleges and Universities!
Smaller schools don’t have the recruiting budget the larger schools do. Many use their elite camps to add roster spots.
Seaton Hall University Pirates offer camps where the head coachand several of the associate coaches will participate in the camp.
Having the actual coaches involved is a great aspect of this camp. This ensures the training will be of high quality.
Rutgers University Head Coach Eddie Jordan (former NBA champion with the Lakers) puts on a Individual Skills Academy and Day Academies.
All camps feature training by Rutgers basketball staff, and local college and high school coaches.
Don’t overlook the smaller College and University camps. Many winning programs will have quality youth basketball instruction.
For example, Stockton University located in Galloway has “Nothing But Net” basketball camps for both boys and girls.
This boys camps features special camp guests like Scottie Pippin (6-Time NBA Champion), Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (NBA Rookie of the Year), and Allan Houston (NY Knicks).
How cool is that!? I haven’t seen any other college features guests of that caliber.
