Summer Camps

Basketball Summer Camps

Athletes for Better Education (AFBE, Inc.) has developed one of the best reputations for quality team camps. Our format, organization, facilities and competition levels are unique to the camp business. There are no stations, lectures or even dorm duties. Coaches come to instruct their teams and play games.

These camps are very competitive and geared toward teams that come to compete.

2020 Summer Camp Dates

  • AFBE Boys & Girls Summer Camp July 9-12, 2020 (Thursday – Sunday) 

AFBE offers three different competitive divisions: Upper Varsity, Lower Varsity and Junior Varsity. Coaches select the division that best fit their team. All games are played at a single site with a minimum of 6-7 full indoor courts at one of the finest facilities in the country.
