Pioneers Basketball Camp was founded in 2016 by Conestoga High School boys basketball coach, Sean Forcine. This week-long summer camp aims to teach basketball fundamentals and create a competitive environment for kids to challenge each other, and thus become better players, while having fun. We adhere to, and teach, the quality of good sportsmanship as well as the values of hard work and teamwork.
Along with teaching basketball skills, we continuously encourage a positive attitude regardless of outcome or skill level. In fact, the biggest award we give at the end of the week is to the camper who demonstrated a positive attitude with his or her fellow campers and staff during times of adversity and success.
Helping Coach Forcine are other Conestoga Coaches as well as a group of counselors hand-picked from the current Conestoga Boys and Girls Basketball Teams. The counselors work with the campers throughout the week as their coaches and instructors.
Along with the coaches and counselors, a Registered Nurse is also onsite throughout the entirety of camp to help any children who may need assistance.
A typical day at Pioneers Basketball Camp is as follows:
