The Shooting & Scoring Camp will focus on all areas of scoring the basketball. The camp is designed to teach players to become a fundamentally sound and completely skilled offensive player.

The camp will focus on two main areas; shooting the basketball and scoring moves. All aspects of shooting the basketball will be taught from proper form all the way to the follow through. A wide range of scoring moves will be taught to make players complete scorers. The camp will have a low number of campers so each camper will receive individual and specialized attention from our coaches. 

At this camp it is our goal to perfect players jump shots, teach them as many quality and usable scoring moves as possible, and get them plenty of shooting repetitions. The camp will consist of individualized shot breakdown, shooting stations, offensive skill stations, 3-on-3 and 5-on-5 games, individual help, competitions, lectures and more.


Our camps can be attended as overnight or day camps. Commuter campers will not miss any of the basketball action. They will get the same great camp experience minus a dorm room and breakfast. The commuter option can be selected on the registration form and is only $365.

The summer basketball camp is for boys entering the 5th-12th grade (Fall 2018) for overnight and commuter campers. Players will be divided by age and skill level so campers will be playing against players of similar ability, size, and age. All campers will receive a free reversible Hoop Mountain jersey. The camp will conclude with an awards ceremony. Each camper will receive a book of drills so they can take home the Hoop Mountain experience with them and continue to work on their skills once camp is over. The Point Guard Camp is at Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, Illinois.

Coaching Staff

Our coaching staff consist of top college and high school coaches as well as college and professional players. Many of our coaches are with us year after year to provide the same top level of instruction. Each of our camps have coaches that are specific to that particular camp.

Our coaches are passionate about teaching the game of basketball and helping our campers improve their basketball skills. 

We offer a very low 7:1 players to coaches ratio that is one of the best in the country. The low ratio will allow each camper to receive individual and specialized attention. 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 including a salad bar, grill station, pizza and pasta bar, and a variety of rotating hot entrees. 


Overnight/Commuter Option

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 a dorm room and breakfast. The commuter option is $50 less.

"Hoop Mountain basketball camp provided me with so much good basketball knowledge that I have put to use outside the camp.
