Frequently Asked Questions:

Who runs camp?

Gordon College's Head Coach and Assistant Coach run each camp.  Current Gordon College Women's Basketball players, Gordon College alumni, athletes from other Gordon Athletics programs, local basketball coaches and players may all be involved as counselors and support staff.


Daily Schedule

Day Camp:

Monday–Thursday | 9 AM–3 PM
Friday | 9 AM–NOON
Daily activities include skill work, drills, games/scrimmages, shooting competitions, swim breaks, and lunch (bring your own).



Day Campers should plan to bring a hearty lunch.  We will have a camp store where campers may purchase Gatorade, bottled water and snacks


What to bring?

Basketball shoes, basketball playing clothes, socks, lunch, swimsuit, towel, snacks/money to buy snacks (optional)


How are campers grouped/divided?

In general, campers are divided by age and not skill level. During the week coaches may make some minor adjustments based on skill level to improve a camper's overall experience. 


Can campers be paired with friends/teammates?

We are open to pairing requests if you identify the friends/teammates with whom your child would like to be grouped but there are no guarantees those requests can be met. If a request can’t be met for some reason, there will be plenty of time throughout the day for campers to be with friends (playing sessions, swim time, lunch, snack breaks, etc.), even if they’re not on the same team.  Summer camp can be a great way to make new friends!


Health Forms

All campers are required to have health insurance coverage and provide the College with recent medical reports. A report of a physical examination conducted within the last 18 months as well as an immunization record completed by your doctor will need to be submitted no later than two weeks prior to the start of camp. Gordon does not require that a specific form be used, only that all information is submitted. Doctors will usually mail or fax these upon request.


Camp Waivers

All campers are required to provide an Emergency Contact Form, Health History Form, Camper Release and Epi-pen (if applicable) Form on file. These forms are available HERE and on the top navigation bar on the home page.


Registration/Drop-off and Pick-up

Registration, drop-off and pick-up will be held inside the gym of the Bennett Athletics Center. You (or your designated sign-ee) must be present to sign for and pick up your daughter (see Camper Pick-Up Form). If you have any questions about this at any time, please reach out to the camp staff.


Athletic Training/Medical Staff

Certified, full-time athletic trainers are available to provide immediate treatment to campers in need. Trained EMTs are available on campus and local hospitals are easily accessible if necessary. If your child has a pre-existing medical condition, requires medication, or carries emergency medication such as an Epi-pen, please notify the camp director and/or the medical staff. If your child carries an Epi-pen, you are required to submit a Permission to Administer Epi-pen Form which is included in the Camp Waiver Forms download.

Camp medical advising and oversight is provided by Gordon Athletics team physician, Dr. Navid Mahooti MD, MPH, of the North Shore Medical Center (978-882-6700).


Do you offer discounts?

Yes! We offer a Gordon College Employee Discount, Sibling Discount and a Friends Discount.  An Early Bird discount will be applied to all registrations made prior to March 31st
