For the past 42 years, the Potsdam Bears International Summer Basketball Camp has attracted over 12,950 campers from the small towns of northern New York, 20 different states, the provinces of Ontario and Québec and around the world. Players will learn the fundamentals of basketball for the 43rd consecutive year at one of the most highly rated camps in the country. Last summer 350 players learned skills through individual and group instruction from a staff of over 75 top college and high school coaches.
Since many of the campers are from Canada, this co-ed camp is truly international in flavor. It is one of the only camps in the country where students from both countries have an opportunity to learn about their neighbors and play on the same team. Although both boys and girls attend camp in the same sessions, the skill groups and teams are not co-ed. Campers will be grouped by age and/or ability level to ensure their maximum development. In addition, an Olympic-size pool, a state-of-the-art weight and exercise room, indoor and outdoor tracks, and a modern athletic training room are available for all campers.
