About the Sixers Camps
The Sixers Camps were started in 1985 as an opportunity for youngsters to learn the fundamentals of the game and "rub elbows" with some NBA players. The first year began with a few weeks of overnight camp of approximately 100 campers in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.
The unique aspect of the camp has been traditional basketball camp, along with the opportunity to learn from the pros. Meet players and coaches, attend Sixers practices and games. Learn what makes the Sixers Camps the preferred destination of boys and girls looking to improve their skill level.
By 1988, the overnight camp had filled to capacity of over 200 campers per week. It was that year that the Day Camps were started in 4 communities throughout Philadelphia and the suburbs.
The Day Camp program has since grown to 14 locations that provide a great learning experience for campers 5-13 years old.
Over the last 10 years, the Sixers Camps have sold out each year. Over 300 kids were turned away last year. The camps have grown to include boys and girls from over 40 states and 45 countries.
Todd Landrey, a former college coach, has 26 years camp experience and has been the Director at Sixers Camps since 1992. Todd's emphasis is to continually work to provide a safe, instructional, fun program for our campers based on the fundamentals and age appropriate skill development.
