Sabercats Girls Basketball Camp

Join “Coach Mo” and girls from around the country as they hoop it up and improve their skills! Specialized drills will help you become better at shooting, ball-handling, passing, and defense. Our instructors will encourage you to demand the best of yourself, on and off the court. You will be able to compete for awards such as Camper of the week, 3-point shooting, hot-shot, free throws, knockout, and dribbling at MBU’s Girls Basketball camp. Between sessions, enjoy some of the best food available at any college anywhere!

Instruction is not limited to basketball. Campers will experience sessions throughout the day that encourage and instruct them in a biblical relationship with Christ. Our hope is that you will not only walk away with a better understanding of how to pick and roll, but that you would also know the word of God that has the power to change lives.

Campers must be at least 12 years old in order to stay in the dorms on campus.
