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 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:

 

  • Warm-up

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

  • Dunk (basic through advanced)

  • Train properly

  • Recover

  • 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.

I want to share a hotel room with another camper. How do I do this? 

When you fill out the registration form to attend The Dunk Camp, indicate you want to share a hotel room. We will connect you with other attendees who also want to share a hotel room for you to arrange directly with them. The hotel will split the charges when you check-out.

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 sharing with at least one other person. If you would like to share a ride, be sure to indicate this in the pre-camp survey that will be sent out 30 days prior to camp. 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. Visit www.rideuta.com for more details.

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 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.

What is the cancellation policy?

  • Full refund if cancelled before January 31, 2024

  • $100 cancellation fee if cancelled between February 1 and March 31, 2024

  • 50% refund if cancelled between April 1 and April 30, 2024

  • NO REFUNDS after May 1, 2024

  • Payments made for The Dunk Camp 2024 can NOT be applied to future camps

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!

​​

I signed up for the Utah Camp but I want to switch to the Wisconsin camp. Can I do this?

If there is space available, you can switch for no charge. 

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 athletes 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. 

What should I bring to camp?
