You already love playing basketball. How about a whole week of hoops against players your age and skill level from around the country? You’ll love the competition, but you’ll also learn fundamental skills in defense, shooting, passing, and ball-handling. When you’re not learning, you’ll be competing–1-on-1, 3-on-3 and 5-on-5 tournaments as well as skills tests and individual competitions at MBU’s Boys Basketball camp.
Instruction is not limited to basketball, with personal, camp and dorm sessions throughout the day, devoted to strengthening your walk with Christ. Our hope is that you will not only walk away with a better understanding of how to pick and roll, but that you would know the word of God that has the power to change lives.
