Camp Update

We are sorry to inform you that The Connecticut Basketball has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2022 camp sessions. 

We have not registered enough campers to successfully operate our camp. We need at least 3 different age groups to have balanced instruction and competition. We hope this letter provides enough time to make other summer plans for your child. 

Our most recent communication with The State of Connecticut reported that other overnight camps are experiencing a similar situation with their enrollment due to COVID concerns for the younger age group. 

We would like to thank all of our past campers, parents, and staff for their support year after year. Because of you, The Connecticut Basketball School has been able to provide a great camp experience for young men since 1960. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 631-642-2766

2021 Season Update

The Connecticut Basketball School will not hold camp in August 2021. We were hoping that we could welcome everyone back at St. Thomas More this summer, but it is not yet safe to do so. We are looking forward to a safe, exciting return in 2022. Please stay healthy and keep practicing! You can find us over on our Facebook page in the meantime.

A Letter to our Campers [UPDATE]

Dear Campers and Families,

We hope this letter finds you safe and healthy. Unfortunately, on May 18, 2020, the Governor of Connecticut announced that all overnight camps in the state will be closed this summer. The safety of campers and staff at The Connecticut Basketball School would be at risk due to the logistics of moving campers through the daily schedules of an overnight camp.

The Connecticut Basketball School ’s objective has always been to provide an environment of safety and to allow each of the over 16,000 campers to have a great experience with their
fellow peers. Although disappointing, we feel the campers would not be able to achieve the experience and agree with the decision of the State of Connecticut.

We would like to thank all of the campers, parents, and staff, who have been faithful and
supportive over the years. Without your support, The Connecticut Basketball School
would not have achieved such success

Hopefully, the summer of 2021 will find our country back to a healthy and safe environment, and The Connecticut Basketball School can open its doors again.

We wish everyone good health as we all try to navigate through these difficult times.
