Greater Development of All Youth (G.D.A.Y) Camps

Board Members

Q: Will the pro athletes be at camp?

A: Yes, the pro athletes will be at camp daily participating in all camp instruction and demonstrations.

Q: Will each camper get individual time with the coaches?

A: Yes, this is one of the aspects that separates GDAY’s Basketball Camps from other sports camps. With our highly-skilled counselors they are able to make an impact by giving individual attention to campers.

Q: Do the boys and girls practice and play together?

A: All campers are separated into different groups by age, gender, and skill level, but for the younger age groups (6-9) they will practice and play together.

Q: Can my child miss a day or half-day during a camp? Will this put them behind?

A: It is not uncommon for kids to occasionally miss a day or have to leave early or arrive late on some days due to various reasons. We realize that family schedules require flexibility. If they miss instructions for a new drill, we will ensure they get time with a camp counselor to bring them back up to speed.

Q: My child is between the ages of 6-8 years old. Will this camp be too intense or hard for them?

A: No, we have counselors trained to work with this young age group. We do not push them as hard as the older age groups. Some kids will move up with the older kids; most will stay at their age level. At this young age it is important that campers have FUN while learning the fundamentals of basketball.

Q: My child is in high school. Is he/she too old for this camp?

A: No, we have a lot of high school kids who attend our camps. Most of the drills and teaching techniques used at GDAY’s Basketball Camps are the same ones used at the college level.

Q: Should I send money with my child?

A: Yes, lunch will not be provide but can be purchased unless the event specifically says otherwise. We recommend that the campers do not be more than $10 per day.

Q: Are all meals provided?

A: Yes, lunch can be purchased along with snacks.

Q: Are the Photo Release and Health Forms required?

A: Yes, both of these forms are required for participation in camp. The forms must be filled out in their entirety with the proper signatures.

Q: Will my child be safe?

A: Absolutely! Your child's safety is our first priority. Counselors and coaches are with the camper throughout the day. GDAY’s Camps has very strict rules. Rough or unsafe play will not be tolerated and are grounds for dismissal. We have never had a child who has been seriously hurt. As an organization we are proud of this record.
