Basketball Camps in North Carolina
North Carolina is a state that takes its basketball seriously; as the home of the ACC's famed "Tobacco Road," every basketball season sees the rivalries between Duke, UNC and NC State flare up, while Wake Forest, ECU and other teams have made significant showings as well. During the summer when school is out, young children can learn more about the sport at basketball camps.
UNC Basketball Camp
Chapel Hill, North Carolina is the home of the University of North Carolina Tar Heels, who have won five NCAA national championships and several ACC tournaments. Coach Roy Williams hosts a basketball camp every summer. This week-long sleep away camp is designed to improve a players skills and give them a good feel for playing on a team. This camp is designed for boys aged nine through 18. UNC also offers a separate basketball camp for girls.
Duke Basketball Camp
Having recently broken records for the greatest wins of any coach in NCAA history, Mike Krzyzewski has coached the Duke Blue Devils since 1980, encompassing all four of the team’s NCAA tournament wins. He, too, has a basketball camp for boys aged nine to 18. In addition, there is a girls' basketball camp at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.
NC State Basketball Camp

Other camps are offered by Wake Forest University, Campbell University, East Carolina University, Campbell University, UNC Asheville, UNC Greensboro, UNC Pembroke, Western Carolina University and Wingate University.
