Intelligent training + hard work = amazing results
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 4 days 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:
Jump (approach, arm-swing, penultimate step, take-off, landing, etc.)
Dunk (basic through advanced)
Think properly and use visualization
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 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.
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.
Do you know your strengths and weaknesses when it comes to your vertical jump? How many inches are you missing out on because of poor jump technique? Would you like to learn directly from some of the best dunkers and trainers in the world?
Whether you are dreaming of landing your first dunk, getting your hops back, or taking your jumping and dunking to the next level, The Dunk Camp will teach you how to get there and do it faster.

Do you have hotel recommendations?
Yes. We have reserved a block of rooms at 2 hotels. The cost to stay at either hotel is $375/person for 5 nights based on sharing a room with another camp attendee. Each room has 2 queen beds.
Cost breakdown: The cost for a hotel room is $150/night (including taxes and fees) x 5 nights which equals $750. This is split between 2 people for a total of $375 per person. You can only get this rate if you share a room with another camp attendee (not a parent, sibling, friend, etc.).
If you would like to stay at one of these hotels and share a room with another attendee, pay for the camp using the housing option and indicate which hotel you prefer when you fill out the registration form. We will arrange for you to share with 1 other attendee (roommate requests are welcome). If you want to stay at one of these hotels but have your own room, or have friends or family coming who need a hotel room - please call the hotel directly or book your reservation online.
1. Best Western Timpanogas Inn
195 S 850 E
Lehi, UT 84043
This hotel is conveniently located 2 blocks from the training facility. It has great reviews, a nice indoor pool and hot-tub, and serves a hot breakfast. There is a grocery store and a few restaurants across the street and several more within a 5-10 minute walk.
2. Holiday Inn Express Lehi - Thanksgiving Point
3701 N Ashton Blvd
Lehi, Utah 84043
This hotel is a 10 minute drive from the training facility so will require providing your own transportation to and from the facility or you may be able to take the hotel shuttle van (only holds 14 people so you may have to wait). This hotel also has great reviews, a nice indoor pool and hot-tub, and serves a hot breakfast. There are approximately 20 restaurants located across the street.
How do you recommend getting from the airport to my hotel and getting around? Should I rent a car?
We recommend taking an Uber or Lyft and if possible share with at least one other person. If you would like to share a ride, be sure to indicate this in the pre-camp survey. We will connect you with others who have flights arriving and departing around the same time to help everyone save money.
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.
What time is hotel check-in? What time is hotel check-out?
If you paid for the lodging option to stay at one of our camp hotels (Best Western Timpanogas Inn or Holiday Inn Express Lehi), the check-in is on Sunday, June 18 at 3:00 pm. Check-out is on Friday, June 23 at 11:00 am.
Can I request a roommate for the hotel?
Yes, provide that info in the pre-camp survey. We will do our best to accommodate requests.
Will there be a shuttle from the hotel to the facility?
If you stay at the Best Western Timpanogas Inn - just walk back and forth (2 blocks away).
If you stay at the Holiday Inn Express - it's about a 10 minute drive from the facility. The cost for an Uber would be approximately $10/each way. You could share with a few others to reduce the cost. The hotel does have a shuttle but seating is limited (holds 14 people) so you may have to wait or leave a little early.
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 either of the camp hotels, breakfast is included in your stay and there are several restaurants located across the street and nearby.
How many athletes will be attending The Dunk Camp Utah?
To allow for as much individual coaching as possible, we are capping attendance at 75 athletes.

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! Typically only about half of our attendees can already dunk on 10'. We have had over 20 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, the vast majority of our past attendees increased their no-step vertical jump and 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.
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 camps so far, we have had over 20 athletes dunk for the very first time 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!
How old do I need to be to attend The Dunk Camp?
Age 14 and up. We welcome "older" athletes who want to get their hops back or take their athleticism to the next level.
