What is a sample day like?
The Day Camp begins at 8:30 and ends at 4:30. Once Coach Beaury finishes his Daily Staff Meeting he addresses the campers with the “thought for the Day” and Camp begins.
The Half Day Camp begins at 8:30 and ends at 12noon.
Camp is very organized. Even our free time is limited and always supervised. Each morning a new daily schedule of all activities is available and reviewed with campers in their morning “team meetings”.

Are the Boys and Girls on the same teams?
While our Boys, Girls and our 5, 6 & 7 year old campers will each be at Rensselaer Jr. Sr. High School at the same time, each group has their own schedules and will compete separately within their respective groups throughout the program. We operate the camp as 2 separate camps within 1. Their are girls teams, and boys teams. There are no Co-ed teams. We may combine for stretching and warm up drills, perhaps even a shooting drill or contest during the week, but the campers have their own teams and coaches and will not play vs each other in games during camp.
My child is a Center/Point Guard/Shooting Guard, etc. Will you have specialized training for them?
We are a fundamentals camp. We will teach the fundamentals of each position to our campers. Coach Beaury believes that all players, regardless of size or position, must be able to dribble, pass and shoot as well as run, defend and rebound. We will work with each camper on any additional skills they wish to work on while at camp. Each day there are opportunities for our coaches to work on individual skills with our campers.
What do Campers bring to camp? What should they wear?
Campers should dress ready to play basketball each day before they arrive at camp. They will not need to bring basketballs. we have 100’s of balls including all “Official Leather Game Balls” for games and competition.
Are meals included:
No, meals are not included in the price of camp. Campers can bring their own meals, etc. or choose to purchase lunch, snacks and drinks during lunch & breaks at the Camp Concession. Available daily will be items like Pizza, Hot Dogs, snacks, fruit, drinks, etc. for purchase at the camp concession each day. Campers will have access to plenty of (free) cold water throughout the day and our Camp Concession during lunch and supervised breaks. On average, no more than $5.00 a day is enough for campers to buy lunch, drinks, snacks, etc.
Is there Early Drop off or Late Pick Up?
We strive to accommodate the schedules of all our parents. We have staff at camp by 8am each day. We’ll never leave until all our campers are safely picked up each day but we’d like to allow our staff to go home by 5pm.
Do I need to submit an application and release form and answer health information in order for my child to participate in camp?
Yes, in order to participate, parents/guardians are required to submit our completed application and health questions and release forms prior to the start of camp. These required forms are part of the online registration or are in our brochure for those who register by mail. While not required to attend camp, you may forward us a copy of your child’s physical to attend camp. You DO NOT need to make a Dr’s appointment prior to attending camp.
What happens if my child is injured or sick during camp?
We have a A Registered Nurse present throughout the duration of camp and will be prepared to deal with any emergencies that should arise. Our location is minutes from Albany Medical Center, Saint Peter’s and Memorial Hospitals. In addition, most of our staff possess CPR and First Aid training as required by NYS in order to coach at a high school or college. Parents will be contacted in the event of an emergency. We meet all the requirements as a Certified Children’s Camp and have thorough Camp Medical Plans in place.
Any Medications that your child may need to take during camp will be administered to the camper each time they need it. Each time this happens the camp medical staff will log it in our Medical Log.
All medications, including Asthma medications or Epi-Pens, should be handed to our camp directors at check in with instructions. All medications will be kept locked in our Camp Infirmary.
Can a camper arrive early or late?
Yes. We have campers coming late and leaving early for many events including: Doctor or Dental appointments, Vacation Plans, All Star games, Baseball Games, Softball Games, Summer School, Summer League Games, etc. However, the camper will be responsible for making his own arrangements with regards to transportation. If campers need to leave early, we need a written request from a parent (email is acceptable; email@example.com) informing the director when the camper is being picked up and who is picking the camper up. Parents may also inform our Co Directors, Alex Meehan or Tom Galvin in person (at drop off or pick up a day in advance) about any special drop off/pick up arrangements for the next day. All final arrangements for pick up and drop off times and the appropriate locations will be made between camp directors and a parent in advance.
Are parents allowed to watch?
While camp is for the camper’s, parents can come to watch their child participate during any training and or games throughout the week. You should set this up in advance as we lock the outside doors at 9:15am and they wont open until 4pm. Access during camp can be prearranged or in emergency attained by going through the Rensselaer Jr Sr High School Main office.
