Every summer, John Calipari welcomes his players to campus by putting them immediately to work. Yes, they are working hard in the gym. But they are also working hard at a variety of summer basketball camps that Calipari hosts annually.
The Satellite Camps are open to campers age 7-17, and provides a day of basketball instruction from the coaching staff and the players. It is a great opportunity for young people around the state to get to meet the players that they cheer so hard for during the season. The final Satellite Camp session will take place on Friday, June 21st in Louisville.
If you are looking to further immerse yourself in the Kentucky Basketball experience, the day and a half father/son camp is a great opportunity. I have personally been attending these camps for years with my son, and it is something we look forward to throughout the year.
And for the first time this year, Calipari is hosting a Father/Daughter camp on June 22nd. These are wonderful opportunities to get even more connected with the Kentucky basketball program. And when you look at their entire calendar, it is very impressive how much work they put into giving back to the fans in this way.
