New Location For County's Slam Dunk Basketball Camp

 The Westchester County Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation has secured a new location for Slam Dunk Basketball Camp as the Westchester County Center in White Plains continues to be used as a vaccination site.

House of Sports in Ardsley will host Slam Dunk Basketball Camp this summer. The first session will be held July 5 – 9 and the second will be held August 16 – 20, both from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

County Executive George Latimer said: “We feel we can operate our youth sports, including basketball, safely. Kids have gone through a lot in the past year with remote learning and isolation, we look forward to welcoming them back to the courts this summer.”

Commissioner of the Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation Kathy O’Connor said: “Slam Dunk Basketball Camp is something we look forward to every year. It’s a rewarding program, especially when we see our campers reach the varsity level and compete in the Section One tournament.”

The Slam Dunk Basketball Camp provides summer instruction for boys and girls entering grades 3 to 9 (as of Sept. 2021). We are dedicated to providing campers with the opportunity to increase their knowledge of the game and develop their basketball skills. The camp’s environment fosters cooperative learning and enthusiasm. Campers improve their skills at various teaching stations and play games designed to utilize the newly learned skills.

Registration is open.

Slam Dunk Basketball Camp aims to increase knowledge of the game and develop skills while fostering enthusiasm.

The camp is open to boys and girls entering grades 3 – 9 in September. Parents are encouraged to register their children early as spaces are limited. Tuition is $350 per camper, per session.
