Camp for Champs

About Us

The SNU Camp for Champs begins its 26th year of existence in the summer of 2012.

Current Director of Athletics, Bobby Martin, started the Camp for Champs in the mid-80’s with one very specific goal in mind, to give children and teens the opportunity to learn a great sport, basketball, in a Christian environment. At the Camp for Champs we have never shied away from the principles that our university was founded on. I believe you’ll find at the Camp for Champs we focus not only on basketball skills, but the principles of character development and Christianity as well.

The name Camp for Champs was chosen for a reason, because we believe that all children are Champions in the eyes of the Lord. At our camp, we will help each young boy and girl to realize the level to which God loves them, while also helping them to realize with hard work and commitment; they too can achieve success in basketball, education, and community.

For the 4th year, the SNU Camp for Champs will be under the leadership of current SNU men’s basketball coach, Adam Bohac.takes Bohac has been highly successful in his first 4 seasons as head coach for SNU guiding the Crimson Storm to a 96-38 record.

Bohac has NCAA Division I coaching and playing experience, serving as an assistant coach at Army for one season and playing collegiately at the University of Nebraska.

Campers will receive a great emphasis on basketball skills from a proven leader in Bohac this summer.

Our camp is unique in that we have counselors that will provide your child with detailed, one-on-one instruction. Our counselors are a vital part of our camps, and they are chosen for athletic ability, Christian commitment, and character. We also have our current basketball coaches that serve as drill instructors for our teaching times. Your camper will also be given the opportunity to hear from our counselors about their experiences in athletics and their spiritual life.

When we started the Camp for Champs in 1985, there were basketball camps around, but not nearly to the extent that they have expanded today. Throughout the country, high schools, colleges, churches and professional sports have begun to hold summer camps for young people. While the opportunities for basketball instruction have increased dramatically over the past 22 years, we have found that the principles, through which this camp was founded, still set the Camp for Champs apart from the rest.

You will find that at the Camp for Champs, our goal is to integrate our belief in the foundations of Christianity while helping to develop young athletes into the best basketball players that they can be. We hope that you consider the SNU Camp for Champs for your child this summer.
