Due to health and safety concerns, related to COVID19, we are sad to inform you that 76ers Overnight Camp has been canceled for Summer 2020. However, we will be offering two weeks of Extended Day Camp at Valley Forge Academy and College: July 20-24 (all boys) and July 27-31 (coed).
Extended Day Camp runs Monday-Friday from 9AM-7PM, for 9-17 year olds. Tuition includes lunch and dinner. To learn more about Extended Day Camp or our other Day Camp offerings, please click below.
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.
Our Wayne, PA location is just 30 minutes from Philadelphia, 2 hours from New York City and 3 hours from Washington, DC. The Overnight Camp will host 4 weekly sessions in July.
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.
"My years at Sixers Camp helped me develop the work ethic necessary to improve my skills and take my game to a higher level. Each summer, for those two weeks of camp, I lived basketball 24/7. I will always remember my time at Sixers Camp as some of the most important weeks in my basketball life.Eli SchwarzCamper: 2002-2005Former Haverford College Basketball player
Senior Director of Strategic Partnership at Jornaya
One of the things I remember most fondly about the 76ers Camp was the chance it gave me to have an identity- both as a person and a basketball player- apart from my older brother Phillip, who also went to the camp. I always loved the chance to compete against him in skills competitions, league games and championships (somehow the occasions when I won stick out more clearly in my mind, funny how that works). More generally, camp gave me the chance to develop my game in a competitive atmosphere that was at once friendly and fierce.Dickson CohenCamper: 1999-2004Strategy Manager at Genentech
