The 76ers Overnight Camp is conducted in Wayne, PA, a suburb of Philadelphia. Since 1985, thousands of campers from 40 states and 50 countries have made the 76ers Overnight Camp the premier location for their skill development.

Campers develop key fundamentals on and off the court by learning cutting edge skills in a fun, positive and competitive learning environment. Campers will learn the drills that current college and pro players have used to elevate their game.

The 76ers Overnight Camp is the place to take your game to the next level. From basic fundamentals to advanced drills, the 76ers Overnight Camp focuses on all skill levels and abilities. Campers meet 76ers players, coaches and other NBA stars. The camp runs 6 days, 5 nights per session. Campers who enroll in consecutive weeks may stay on campus over the weekend under the supervision of our coaching staff. Weekend activities include movie on Friday, trip to Dorney Park on Saturday and 76ers Training Complex on Sunday.

Each session is complete in itself and runs for 6 days of teaching, fundamentals and skill development-as well as 2-3 games daily. Campers can elect to attend one, two, three, or four week sessions. The first session is coed and sessions 2 through 4 are available for boys only.

The 76ers Camp is geared towards campers of all skill levels. Those campers wishing to improve a specific aspect of their game can choose individual instruction on a daily basis as one of their camp activities.

Sixers number one draft pick, Ben Simmons message to campers

From the time I was nine until I was seventeen, 76ers Basketball Camp was my summer home. Even though I was never the most gifted basketball player, the work I put in at 76ers Camp provided me with the groundwork to be a successful player. I would often improve more in the 2 weeks at 76ers Camp than I would for the entire rest of the year.

My experiences at 76ers Camp definitely helped me become the person and player I am today. I attended 76ers Camp for 10 summers as a camper and just this past summer as a coach. I always looked forward to those weeks at camp as a child because I knew it was an experience I could not get anywhere else
