ABOUT

The Dunk Camp is simply that -- a camp completely focused on the most beautiful and athletic feat in all of sports and dream of every player who has ever stepped on the court - dunking a basketball.

 

We bring together the best dunkers and vertical jump trainers in the world for a week of intense training on every aspect of jumping and dunking to help athletes accelerate their progress towards making their first dunk or taking their dunking skills to the next level. 

 

At The Dunk Camp, you will learn how to:

 

  • Warm-up

  • Jump (approach​, arm-swing, penultimate step, take-off, landing, etc.)

  • Dunk (basic through advanced)

  • Train properly

  • Recover

  • Think properly and use visualization

  • Eat right

  • Avoid and recover from injuries

  • Overcome obstacles, challenges, and plateaus

  • Apply the principles of dunking in other areas of your life

 

​Each participant will be pre and post tested on their vertical jump. This data will be kept in our Dunker Database and will allow you to see how you compare with other dunkers including professional dunkers. Each athlete receives a 12 week jump technique training program to take home to continue their training and building on what they learned at camp.

 

​At the end of the camp, participants will get to show off their hops in a dunk contest (low rims and regulation) judged by our pro dunkers for sweet prizes and bragging rights.

 

​The Dunk Camp finale is an epic Dunk Show put on by our pro dunkers. All attendees can participate during warm-ups where they can try to land their first dunk or new dunks!

There is no other camp in the world like The Dunk Camp. If you love dunking, you need to be here.

We will share more specific details as we get closer to camp.

Do I need to be able to dunk in order to attend The Dunk Camp?

No! That is one of the main reasons we created this camp! At our first two camps, roughly only half of the attendees could already dunk on 10'. We have had 8 attendees so far land their very first dunk at The Dunk Camp which has been very special to be a part of! We anticipate many more landing their first dunks at our camp. We also have low-rim dunk sessions and contests!

How many inches will I gain on my vertical jump if I attend The Dunk Camp?

That is impossible to predict. However, 81% of our attendees at our 2018 and 2019 camp increased their no-step vertical jump from Day 1 to Day 4. And 75% of our attendees increased their full approach vertical jump from Day 1 to Day 4. With that said, most of your progress will happen after The Dunk Camp by applying what you learned at camp.

Will I be able to dunk by the end of The Dunk Camp?

We will have low and regulation rims so everyone will be throwing down sick dunks regardless of their current ability! :) At our 2 camps so far, we have had 8 athletes dunk for the very first time on 10 feet and even more guys land new dunks they had never done before! Landing your first dunk at The Dunk Camp is an epic memory that no one will ever forget! 

What airport should I fly into? 

Fly into the Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC). The airport is located about 35 miles from the training facility.

When should I fly into Salt Lake City (SLC)? When should I fly out?

Fly into Salt Lake City on Sunday, August 1. Best time to arrive would be early afternoon.

Fly out of Salt Lake City on Friday, August 6. 

How do you recommend getting from the airport to my hotel and getting around? Should I rent a car? 

Renting a car will give you the most flexibility but of course cost the most. There is public transportation available from the airport by both train and bus but has limited hours on weekends and can be a little confusing (requires multiple transfers). Visit www.rideuta.com for more details.

Our recommendation is to take an Uber or Lyft and if possible share with at least one other person. If you would like to share a ride, send an email to andy@thedunkcamp.com and he will help arrange ground transportation with a few others who have flights arriving and departing around the same time to help everyone save money.

Do you have hotel recommendations?

Yes. We have reserved a block of rooms at the Holiday Inn Express Lehi - Thanksgiving Point. 

Holiday Inn Express & Suites Lehi - Thanksgiving Point
3701 N Ashton Blvd
Lehi, Utah 84043

This hotel has great reviews, serves a very nice hot breakfast (eggs, waffle station, fruit, etc.), and has a huge indoor pool, hot tub, etc.

They have offered us the discounted price of $100/night (plus taxes) for a deluxe room with 2 queen beds. If you would like to stay here and share a room, just register for the camp using the housing option. We will arrange for you to share with 1 other attendee (roommate requests are welcome). If you want to stay here but get your own room, or have friends or family coming who need a hotel room - they can book using this link.   

This hotel is about 10 minutes from the training center. A shuttle will be provided.

Will there be a shuttle from the hotel to the facility?

Yes

Will any food be provided?

We will provide lunch and light snacks each day of the camp. You are welcome and encouraged to bring extra food and drinks. If you stay at the camp hotel (Holiday Inn Express), breakfast is included in your stay and there are several restaurants located across the street and nearby.
 

Do you have a packing list?

Yes. You can find it here.

How many athletes will be attending The Dunk Camp?

To allow for as much individual coaching as possible, we are capping registration at 75 athletes.
