Wheaton College invites the community to take part in the 47th session of Wheaton College Basketball Camps. Through the years more than 10,000 young men and women have attended the summer sessions especially designed for school aged children.

The camp program, which began under the leadership of Wheaton's legendary coach Lee Pfund, teaches the fundamentals of offensive and defensive basketball while providing practical application of the sport within the context of Christian character development and sportsmanship.

The camps are staffed by nationally and locally recruited collegiate and high school coaches. Coach Mike Schauer, now in his fourth year as head coach of the Wheaton men's basketball team, serves as camp director.

Day camps are available for boys and girls in 1st--9th grades. A one-week residential camp is available for 6th--9th grade boys.
