UK announces return of John Calipari Satellite Camp Tour

This is a great opportunity to meet the team and coaching staff, and maybe even learn a little about basketball.

For the first time in several years, Kentucky Basketball will be offering satellite camps for children 7-17 in age. John Calipari hosts camps every summer (Overnight Camp, Father-Son Camp, Fantasy Camp), but this will be the first time since 2013 that he has taken the show on the road.

Campers will receive skills instruction, autograph opportunities with staff and players, and even the opportunity to play against current players. Hopefully we will have a better idea of who the actual players are by that point.

The camp will take place from June 4th - June 7th in the following locations:

June 4th

Bardstown - Thomas Nelson High School, 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

June 4th

Elizabethtown - Elizabethtown High School, 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

June 5th

London - North Laurel High School, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

June 6th

Louisville - Christian Academy of Louisville, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

June 7th

Union - Union, Kentucky Ryle High School, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Camp registration is $80 per camper, and in addition to the experience each camper will receive a special edition UK t-shirt.

As a person that attends the Father-Son camp every year, I cannot recommend Coach Cal’s camps highly enough for kids. It’s the highlight of my son’s summer every year, and I highly encourage you to check out one of the satellite camps if you are unable to catch one of the offerings in Lexington.
