Lake Norcentra Basketball Camp

During the past 42 years literally, thousands of local young kids have taken part in Lake Norcentra Basketball Camp. Coach Garth Pleasant’s camp is known for more than teaching basketball fundamentals. Coach Pleasant’s emphasis on attitude, respect and giving your best effort not only on the court but in the classroom and at home have benefited many young people and parents. You will not want to miss Coach’s final talk on Friday afternoon.

Camp Information
Who: LNBC is designed for girls and boys ages 6 to 16.
Where: Campus of Rochester University in Rochester Hills, Michigan.
When: Five weeks are held each summer.
Days/Times: Camp runs Monday through Friday. There is an orientation session for campers and parents at 9 a.m. Monday morning. This typically lasts about 30 minutes then campers are assigned to their teams. Check-in opens prior to the orientation session.
Cost: $210 per camper per week.
Teams: On the registration form campers can indicate friends they would like to be on a team with. We make every effort to accommodate these requests. We will work with your camper during Monday’s registration to make sure they are placed with their friends.

What to bring?
Attire: Comfortable gym attire, weather-appropriate
Shoes: Comfortable athletic shoes
Water: Water jug/bottle. Please make sure your child’s name is clearly indicated on the bottle.
NEW FOR 2021 Lunch and/or money: Campers may pack or purchase a MEAL DEAL lunch. Packed lunches will be placed in the camper’s team bin. The MEAL DEAL is $5. In the past, we have had “a la carte” lunches where kids could get however many slices they wanted and a variety of chips/candy. However, the current orders require that lunches be “boxed”. We will have all lunches boxed, and coaches will come to pick up the number of boxes they need for their team. This will also avoid kids congregating around the lunch stand.
NO Basketballs: There is no need to bring a basketball. Basketballs of appropriate size will be provided to each team.
Sun & Heat: We encourage campers to wear sunscreen and have sunscreen available at each outdoor court. During hot summer days, we will rotate teams often so they can cool off in the shade and/or air conditioning.
