Elite Camp Information

"Without dreams, there is no need to work; without work there is no need to dream!”

If you like to work hard on your game and dream about accomplishing BIG things, this is the camp for you. At Elite Camp, the Stanford Coaches teach an advanced “Skill Circuit”: full court moves, one on one moves, two ball drills, point, wing, and post moves, passing entries into an offense, and more that will have a daily progression. All 5 on 5, full court, officiated games are played indoors. Although it is an advanced camp, there is still time for plenty of fun. Pizza parties in the dorm lounge will have you laughing out loud!

Camp is open to any and all entrants! Recommended for all skill levels from the advanced beginner to top high school level.

Teams: Campers are place on teams randomly according to age and grade. Our priority in forming teams is to have balanced leagues. The coaching staff with over 38 years of experience will make changes as needed. Therefore, we respectfully do not honor team assignment requests.

Note: NCAA regulations prohibit financial aid assistance.

Camper Money: Overnight campers may deposit monies in the "camp store" account at registration. Balance must be picked up at check out. Cash in - cash out.

Dorm Roommate requests:
Campers are allowed to request for one (1) roommate,however, request are not guaranteed. Requests that are mutual,meaning, both campers have listed each other on their registration as wanting to be roommates, are guaranteed, if they are made before the rosters are submitted to Conference Services (30 days prior to the camp start date). Paired campers should expect and welcome the single campers assigned to their room :)

We will do our best to accommodate all requests and will try to put multiple requested campers next-door or as close as possible to each other. 

There are different room configurations depending upon the dorm we are assigned each summer; therefore there are possible doubles, triples and/or quads that each camper may be assigned to. 

Late registration has less of a chance to accommodate any roommate requests made and ARE NOT GUARANTEED.

Once a room is assigned and registration has begun,there are numerous reasons for not being able to accommodate a request. Campers without a roommate request will be matched up by age. Most campers do not list a roommate so no worries.

Dorm floors are also assigned by age group and have staff on every floor.

Everyone should be open to meeting lots of new friends from all over the US and beyond!

At no time will campers be rooming alone. The Housing Coordinator matches up campers by age. This may take a bit of time on the first day, so patience is required here.

Changes can only be made by the Dorm Director and will take place after registration and before dinner time.  Room changes require documentation submission to Conference Services to ensure emergency contact information and room numbers are accurate.  This is for your child's safety and our emergency contact records. No exceptions here :)

We will not be collecting a key deposit however,campers are soley responsible for their room key. KEY REPLACEMENT COST is $185.00 and is due at the time of check out.

All keys must be turned in at the Alpha Table it was issued, by 12:00pm, NOON. There is another sport camp following us and rooms will be re-keyed immediately.

NO exceptions possible. Dorm rooms are re-keyed immediately after our camp concludes for the next incoming camp. Agreement is noted as such on Camp Waiver signed at registration.

Campers early departure: for any reason, are responsible to turn in their room key with the Housing Director or Camp Director to avoid the replacement cost.
