This summer, the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame is organizing its first ever Hall of Fame Basketball Camp of Excellence. This will be a high intensity 3 day camp for the young player who wants to take their game to the next level and learn the steps it will take to get there.

This camp will be a true "Nova Scotia" basketball experience!

40 boys and 40 girls, grades 7 through 9, will enjoy a "one of a kind" basketball camp. From August 25-27 on two full courts of the Canada Games Center, they will learn and put into practice essential basketball and life skills, under the guidance of the most accomplished sport personalities in the province.

Skills and drills will be the focus for the camp, but these athletes will also learn techniques to help them grow as a person. Nutrition sessions, yoga classes, strength and conditioning classes, and mental preparedness will all be part of this 3-day basketball experience.The last day of the camp will be a showcase of talent of our young athletes.
