The Perimeter Camp is for guards and forwards who want to improve their perimeter and wing skills. The camp will cover a wide array of skills to help improve players offensive and defensive game. While the camp is designed for perimeter players, the skills learned can be useful to players of all positions.
The summer camp is for boys basketball players entering the 5th-12th grade (Fall 2017) for overnight and commuter campers. Players will be divided by age and skill level so campers will be playing against players of similar ability and size. All campers will receive a free Hoop Mountain jersey.
Camp Topics Covered:
The camp will consist of instructional stations, games, individual help, competitions, lectures, and more. For games and certain drills the perimeter camp is combined with the point guard and big man camps.

►Camp sessions are designed to go together so players can fully master their game.
►Two hours in-between camps where stay over campers will be supervised and be provided lunch.
Our coaching staff consist of top college and high school coaches as well as college and professional players. Our coaching staff is with us year after year to provide the same top level of coaching and instruction. Each of our camps have coaches that are specific to that certain camp.
Our coaches are passionate about teaching the game of basketball and helping our campers improve their skills.
We offer a very low 7:1 players to coaches ratio that is one of the best in the country. All of our camps will have a certified athletic trainer present at all times.
Campers will eat all meals at the Illinois Wesleyan dining hall. Meals are all-you-can-eat buffet style with a wide variety of options.
Overnight campers will stay in an air-conditioned Illinois Wesleyan dorm. Dorms are supervised by the Hoop Mountain staff and are only used by our camp. Each floor of the dorm has several members of our staff staying on it and each floor is broken down by campers age. You can make a roommate request on the registration form or we will put you with a player of a similar age.
Commuter campers will not miss any of the basketball action. They will get the same great camp experience minus the dorm room and breakfast. Commuter option is $50 less.
We have been running camps at Illinois Wesleyan University since 2000. Located in Bloomington, IL right in the middle of the state. Conveniently located right off of highways 55, 74, and 39. The safe and secluded campus is located within two hours of Chicago and two and half hours of Indianapolis and St. Louis.
All basketball activity will be held indoors at Illinois Wesleyan's Shirk Center. The Shirk Center is one of the best athletics facilities in the country with seven full-size basketball courts all indoors under one roof. Below are pictures of the field house, main gym, and practice gym that will be used.

Campers at our positional camps (point guard, perimeter, and big man) will spend roughly two thirds of the camp with their specific positional camp, and the remaining time combined with the other two camps. While combined with the other camps, campers will play in games and do live drills to use what they have learned in their specific camp.
We have all the positional camps together so campers can take what they learned in their specific camp and use in games with all positions. It can be difficult to fully learn a lot of basketball skills when you are unable to use them in a real 5-on-5 game with players of all positions. Each of our three positional camps have coaches that are specific and specialized to that camp.
For an additional $15 campers can add on 3 sessions with the Noah Shooting System. Noah is a shot tracking system used to help players shots, specificly the shot distance and arc. More information on Noah can be found here.
