Fork Union Basketball Camp

29th Annual Basketball Camp
July 6-10, 2014
Ages 9-16

Fork Union Basketball School (FUBS) was established in 1985 under the direction of Coach Fletcher Arritt.

Coach Arritt will again be present at this year's basketball school, but the camp will be under the guidance of Fork Union Military Academy Post Graduate Basketball Coach, Matt Donohue. Over the past 42 years, more than 200 of FUMA's players have gone on to play Division 1 basketball. Throughout Thomas Gymnasium, one can view an impressive display of college jerseys donated by former players. These athletes, along with other well-respected players, are the core of the teaching staff at Fork Union Basketball School. Experience, success, love of the sport, and enthusiasm are all reflective of the 29 years FUBS has educated campers in the fundamentals of the game. Included with skill instruction, the camp teaches good sportsmanship, social skills and the importance of teamwork. We provide a full schedule that allows for all ages and skill levels.

Resident campers are housed in air conditioned Academy dormitories staffed by camp counselors and instructors. Bring your own linens (towels, pillows, sheets, etc). Nutritious hot meals begin with Sunday evening supper and end with Breakfast on Friday. Day campers may have lunch and dinner. We are not responsible for, and ask you not to bring, any electronic devices, such as iPods and video games, etc.
