The 3rd Hakeem Olajuwon Basketball Summer Camp from Monday 30th July – Friday 3rd August 2018
Following the amazing success of our first two summer camps with Hakeem Olajuwon, we are now delighted to confirm that the 2018 camp will go ahead from Monday 30th July until Friday 3rd August. The cost of the camp remains the same as last year at £375 for Residential and £275 Non-Residential.
The camp will again be supported by NBA Legend and City of Birmingham Rockets Club Director Hakeem ‘The Dream’ Olajuwon and will be overseen by the experienced Peter Mintoft. Some outstanding overseas coaches will shortly be announced to work alongside an array of the best and most experienced development coaches from the club and around the UK chosen by Hakeem.
Residential campers will be accommodated in the nearby Aston University halls of residence. The excellent facilities include en suite rooms for every camper with shared kitchen/breakfast rooms within each flat.
Each morning the campers will make the short journey to our playing facilities where they will take part in five full days of basketball activity led by our skilled and experience camp coaching staff.
Non-residential campers will arrive at the playing venue for a 9am start on each day. All campers will receive two full meals during each day of camp with residential campers eating breakfast at the accommodation at the start of the day.
Whilst we know how much our campers will enjoy the week, we fully understand that many parents will have questions and concerns relating to their child/children being away from home. We are proud of the high level of welfare support that our off court camp staff provide. Chaperones are appointed to support the needs of every residential camper, whilst our camp counsellors ensure that any issues raised during the day are dealt with fairly and promptly. We believe this support service ensures maximum enjoyment for all participants.
This camp will be no doubt once again be an amazing experience for everyone participating. Hakeem and the camp staff are extremely excited and proud to be bringing this camp back to Birmingham again.
