Basketball at Camp Pontiac
For those who want the coed sleepaway camp experience but also top basketball instruction to improve your game, look no further! New York State Basketball Hall of Fame Coach Walter “Wally” Bachman directs 10 instructors in our incredible summer camp basketball program.
Daily basketball clinics cover passing, shooting, dribbling, defensive drills, perimeter play, and how to handle realistic game situations here at our East Coast camp. In addition to clinics, Wally and his staff are busy during rest hour giving private lessons - at no extra cost - to any campers wishing to expand their skills. Our campers take to the courts in our intramural games, which we model after intramural school leagues, to put their newfound knowledge to work. Inter-camp games are a fun way for our campers to represent Pontiac against other New York summer camps and more, but we don’t stop there! Camp Pontiac also has travel tournament teams for those looking to participate in a higher level of play. Regardless of experience, we focus on inclusion to ensure that all campers enjoy the game!
