Camp Lakers, presented by UCLA Health, is back!
For the 20th summer, Camp Lakers is committed to providing young players with the ultimate Lakers experience. Camp Lakers is the only summer basketball camp where you can shoot on the court at Lakers Headquarters, win Lakers autographed items, meet Lakers players and the Laker Girls and win Lakers tickets!
All week, campers will learn the Laker way honing their basketball skills and discovering the importance of hard work, teamwork, dedication, and sportsmanship, on and off the court. Each day special Lakers guests and staff will visit to meet and speak with the campers. On the last day of the week, the campers will take a field trip to the brand new Lakers facility, to meet Lakers and see where the Lakers work on their basketball skills! The state of the art UCLA Health Training Center is the home of the Lakers, and there campers will have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play on the same court the Lakers play on every day and shoot around with Lakers players!
The first four days of Camp Lakers will be held at The Map Sports Facility in Garden Grove, Calf. The facility features premium full indoor courts in an innovative championship-level arena located conveniently off of the 405 freeway. As always, Camp Lakers will feature instruction from Lakers staff, overseen by members of the Lakers Basketball operations staff and coached by players with NCAA and NBA experience.
