Camp Lakers, powered by UCLA Health, is back!

Camp Lakers, powered by UCLA Health, is committed to providing young players with the ultimate Lakers experience. This camp attracts young players from around the world and offers the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play on the same court the Lakers play on every day and shoot around with Lakers personalities!

All week, campers learn to play the Lakers way, honing their basketball skills and discovering the importance of hard work, teamwork, dedication, and sportsmanship, on and off the court. Special Lakers guests and staff visit camp and speak about their own personal NBA paths.

The first four days of Camp Lakers are held at The Map Sports Facility in Garden Grove, California. The Map Sports Facility features premium full indoor courts in an innovative championship-level arena located conveniently off the 405 freeway. Camp Lakers features instructors overseen by members of the Lakers Basketball Operations staff. Camp consists of offensive and defensive drill stations, games, league play, playoffs and awarded skill contests. Campers are grouped by age and ability.

On the last day of the week, campers take a field trip to the UCLA Health Training Center, the home of the Lakers. At Lakers HQ, campers have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play on the same court the Lakers play on every day!
