Review the following list of frequently asked questions to learn more about the Miami HEAT's health and safety protocols this summer at camp.
Jr. HEAT Summer camp will operate at a limited capacity. The number of participants will vary based on the nature of the camp, facility space, and staffing. The groups will be organized into the smallest practical sizes. To the extent possible, the campers's exposure to different counselors and campers will be limited.
To reduce the introduction of new objects to camp, parents should leave their child's personal items at home. Accommodations should be made for children with disabilities, special needs or medications.
At camp, each child will have their own set of materials, when possible. Camp staff members are responsible for sanitizing materials after each use. Shared sports equipment, such as basketballs, will be sanitized daily before and after camp.
All campers and staff members are required to wear a mask at all times while indoors and not actively playing, eating or drinking. Campers may remove their mask during activity and drills. Hand sanitizer is available throughout the camp and facility. Signage has been installed across our facility, including in bathrooms, to promote hygiene/hand washing and physical distancing.
Counselors have been trained to follow all the Miami-Dade Arena COVID-19 protocols and contact tracing procedures. Each camp has a designated professional staff member responsible for coordinating facility sanitization and ensuring their camp groups adhere to Miami HEAT policy.
Campers who display COVID-19 symptoms will be isolated immediately, and parents will be contacted to pick up their child. Until they receive negative results from a COVID-19 PCR test, campers displaying symptoms will remain quarantined at home. Parents are responsible for taking their child to get tested.
Siblings of campers who have tested positive will be considered close contacts and also will be required to quarantine. If a campers sibling test positive for COVID-19, the parent must notify the camp director and must follow the aforementioned steps. This also applies if Parents of campers test positive for COVID-19.
Any camper with a non-COVID-19 illness must remain at home until 24 hours after their symptoms have been resolved without the need for medication and also provide a negative Covid 19 PCR test.

No - All payments must be made completely and upfront in order to confirm your child's spot at camp.
There is no deadline- First come first served, but camp fills up fast so we encourage early registration to confirm your space.
We try our best to have 1 current or former player attend camp 1 day out of each week - however it is not guaranteed. (This Meet & Greet is for campers only. NOT FAMILY OR FRIENDS OF CAMPERS. Our goal is to give each child the most of their time with the player/legend.)
We suggest 8:30am to check in. Camp will begin at 9am.
We do not offer after care, but we have a coach who does not leave until the last camper is picked up. However, we strongly encourage parents to pick up no later than 4:00 pm.
We have campers who have never touched a ball, and campers who have played their whole life. We teach basic skills and training and accommodate all skill levels.
Yes- actually many tourist and foreigners attend camp each summer. We love having fans from all over the nation join us… HEAT Nation!
Unfortunately we do not offer overnight or transportation accommodations, and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. Parents are responsible for picking up and dropping off their child daily.
No- the campers stay at the camp location all day.
This is a common request, and we cannot accommodate everyone. Our main goal is to make the teams fair as possible. We divide teams on Monday morning based on age and skill level.
