Our camps are designed to fix any technical aspect of shooting. We believe that deficiencies in your game can be addressed over the course of a summer of training once the foundation has been put in place. Understanding that basketball is more than just shooting, while at camp attendees work on team concepts in regards to movement, game situation decision making, and one-on-one moves.
We offer two types of camp:
While at Four Point Basketball & Nike Basketball summer camps, you can expect:
How does my child get up to camp? Do you offer transportation?
There are three different ways that attendees get camp. You can drive them up yourself, take the Go bus, or you can come up on one of the Four Point Basketball vans.
The Four Point Basketball van that leaves from outside of the Vaughan Mills Mall at the LegoLand entrance on Sunday afternoon at 2:00PM.
Please contact our office to make arrangements.
How many sessions are offered per day?
There are four sessions per day (Monday – Friday). Each session is approximately 2 hours long. On Sunday there is one session.
Evening Programs: The evening programs consist of guest speakers, movies, Chrismahankwanza (Overnight), crafts and recovery.
What is the difference between Day Camp and Overnight Camp and is there a required skill level?
The main difference between Day Camp and Overnight is the number of sessions.
All skill levels are welcome. Campers are grouped by age first then skill level and any necessary adjustments are made after the first day by camp Coaches to balance the number of players in each group. Camp is the place to play with new teammates and try new moves and play new positions.
What is the roommate request policy?
Campers are allowed to request one (1) dorm roommate. Request are not guaranteed, however, we will do our best to accommodate all requests made. Requests that are mutual,meaning, both campers have listed each other on their registration as wanting to be roommates, are guaranteed, if they are made before the rosters are submitted (two weeks before camp start date). We will try to put multiple requested campers next-door or as close as possible to each other.
There are different room configurations depending upon the dorm we are assigned each summer; therefore there are doubles, triples and quads that each camper may be assigned to.
Late registration has less of a chance to accommodate any roommate requests made and ARE NOT GUARANTEED.
Once a room is assigned and registration has begun, there are numerous reasons for not being able to accommodate a request. Campers without a roommate request will be matched up by age. Most campers do not list a roommate so no worries.
At no time will campers be rooming alone. The Camp directors match up campers by age.
Can Campers explore the campus?
Campers should never leave the general vicinity of the assigned Dorm building and workout areas.
What is the camper to staff ratio at camp? What is the camper to staff ratio in the dorms?
The ideal camper to staff ratio is 6:1 or less.
Is there an option for partial camp registration payment?
Full payment is required to hold the campers spot at camp. For obvious reasons, headcounts are crucial for staffing, team assignments, daily scheduling and room/meal planning.
Any tips for first time overnight campers?
Bring a pair of flip-flops to air out your feet during meals / in between sessions.
Changing socks mid-day is a good way to avoid blisters as well.
Drink lots of water! Keep hydrated.
Where can Day Campers rest between meals while overnight campers are in their rooms?
Day Campers use the cafeteria and dorm lounge as a resting spot between meals and session.
Do you have a tuck shop?
We have the online store and a pre-camp swag bundle that can be ordered once a camper is registered for camp. limited inventory will also be on hand.
Where is my child allowed to purchase products?
Yes, we do have a tuck shop where we sell food, drinks and Four Point Basketball gear. The tuck shop is open during free time from Monday to Friday and Saturday prior to departure.
Do you offer a laundry service?
There are no laundry services available while at Loyalist College. So bring lots of socks and laundry bag.
How many meals are served each day?
When campers arrive on Sunday the first meal served to them is dinner. Overnight campers are served breakfast, lunch, dinner, and an evening snack. Day campers are provided with snack and pizza on Friday.
Campers will be staying on campus in residences.
We offer athletes a valuable experience that will ultimately improve their shooting skills and court performance. We understand the enjoyment and sense of accomplishment that comes from the pursuit of excellence, and as a result, we are committed to providing athletes will the skills, tools and opportunity to achieve their goals.

The emphasis is on improved individual skill sets. Positions are not assigned either, allowing campers to experience all positions.
Please pack only those items necessary for camp. We expect that all athletes will not bring items that pose a safety risk.
Overnight Camper packing list:
FYI: Dorms are WiFi enabled and equipped with fridges, microwaves, and cupboards to store additional food. Dorms do have air conditioning.
Clothing – Campers should pack at least:
Please remember to bring flip-flops to protect your feet! Flip-flops will air out tired feet during the lunch and dinner breaks, and can also be worn in the shower area. Bare feet are never a good idea. Stubbed toes and blisters are a common ailment that can be prevented by wearing flip-flops.
