Bishop Summer Basketball Camp Registration Now Open!!!


Each summer Coach Josh Thompson and the Bishop Basketball Program host their annual basketball camps. Since 2004, the Villain basketball camps have provided area youths the opportunity for instruction in the fundamental skills of basketball. In addition to small group instruction, campers at Bishop basketball camps are allowed the opportunity for individual instruction and skill work, coaches challenge games, camper competitions, and daily camp games. Camp is run by Coach Thompson, the Varsity boys head coach, along with current and former Bishop McGuinness players and coaches. Each year Bishop Basketball alumni love to come back to be coaches or guest speakers at camp. Each camper who attends does not simply come and play games- Villain basketball camps stress individual and small group fundamental skill instruction. 

We have been at capacity (60 per session) the last several years, so register today to guarantee your son's spot at camp.

We will have 2 sessions again this summer running from 9 AM- 2 PM daily.

Session 1- June 19- June 23

Session 2- July 10- July 14
